Was lurking on V-Twin Forum (God I'm so sorry I admitted to that; please don't hold it against me) and would post a general question from time-to-time. Someone pointed me to here last (???) Sept or Oct. Lurked, listened, learned and joined...

Whuz pokin' around Sportster.org and clicked on a link, and got transported here. (Well the OLD here....) Just appreciated the user friendly format, ease of use,(some other sites are a real P.I.T.A.) and wide variety of people and personalities. Got me thru the winter, I know, this is Vegas and we don't really have winter here compared to alot of y'all, but we did get more rain than we EVER have, and riding here in the rain is no smarter than parking yer bike in the fast lane of the freeway and having a picnic. Your chances of getting run over are about the same.

I think I found the old site through Bert's personnel web page. Found that through Google.

J/K, but I'm looking for a "Good" reason to go back.
Heck, I'm always looking for an excuse.

Must be great having LV HD so close.

Welll first I grabbed him by the collar and dragged him to the 'puter. Amidst violent rage and obscene protest I forced him to the forum. After much brow beating and harassing I finally got him to post and now look at him. It's shameless.

OMG!! You wanna know about me and not my kid... um, er lesee... I fergit.

I'm was a member of another forum, where some of the other members of XLF go.

Xena and Bert both gave me some information that linked back to XLF, so I joined up here to ask the question direct instead of going through that other site.

i did a lot of research before i decided to buy a sportster and even more after.
i was on v-twin forum, visited sportster.org, and a few other harley forums.
found this one, like what i saw/read (no put down bullshit) and stayed.

cheers

I was looking for information on spark plug gap and I found the old forum. I have been here ever since. Learning and sharing. I might not put up a lot of post but I read every one you guys put on. Enjoy.
