It'd be nice if they would have stated that in the manual.

Still love it though.

Understanding a Sportster is, if old enough..a constant battle for bolt and nut vigilance.
There is a lot of wisdom between the words and sentences here that applies to the technology that bikes have developed over the years, lots of years, years you can't take back. Then as you feel all warm and comfortable with this theory, you again focus on that Harley that you ride, and all you can do is laugh, get on the seat and ride away as it wiggles and wobbles beneath you like it has always done, and always will do.

A Harley isn't a ride, it's an adventure. One minute you are riding through the desert in tune with your surroundings and alone in the world. Then something wobbles it's way to the pavement and then you battle with your surroundings, alone in the world.

What could be Fouken better???
