mine is tore into a bunch of little pieces now, but my photographer friend took a couple pics for me rite when i bought it, it was completely stock. had them blown up into 17x24, and they hang in the garage where i sit and stare at the parts and the pics, getting ideas for what i'm gonna do to her.

I have it on my 'puter at work (A nice 24" LCD) and spend way to much time staring at it when I am supposed to be working! Like now when I'm on the XL forum......

If anyone does not stare at their bike and is lacking in how much love and attention they can give; I have a place where it will be loved and cared for.

I will even pick up shipping

I thought I would try to beat Superwarden to the punch...

I admit it. Guilty as charged. Don't have an ironhead, but know the feeling of the "stare"....

Best thing is, the bike doesn't say : "Hey, my eyes are up here !!".

Usually when I am alone with it. It really helps me to figure things out. Sometimes I touch it...the bike!!

My girl thinks I'm crazy and obsessed
My parents think I'm crazy and obsessed
My students think I'm crazy and obsessed
... but my uncle has owned 15 harleys and he gets it.

I stare at pictures when I can't get over to the garage to work on her.

I have to admit, I was a little worried for a minute that there was something else wrong with me.

I have not seen my bike in 4 months =( Its been at my uncles shop sitting in line with 15 other bikes . God i hate winter , Anyway the motor is torn down for a winter rebuild and all i have to look at is pictures. If only i had a place to work on it i would stare at her everyday lol . Its a good thing my uncle owns a harley repair shop or i would have to put her in cold storage somewhere and only work on it in the summer months . now im depressed =( maybe i will check on the old girl this weekend =)
