Put about 430 miles on my 2007 Sportster this weekend.

Good luck; we're all pulling for you!

Default HF Motorcycle lift

Upgrading a HF lift. Purchased for an 07 1200C. Should have done this years ago, Sporty needs a regulator, installing a vintage toolbox, and adjusting the clutch. Much easier with the new lift.

Two days ago I put on taller risers (5.5") for the drag bars. Kind of mixed feelings about them.
She got her yearly bath this morning.
We rode in the Ohio bike week parade.
Got home before the rain and changed the engine oil and lubed the clutch cable.
If it's still crappy out tomorrow I may tackle the umbrella valves.
