And The Beat Goes On…

My house guest has come and gone,the Meet&Eat is past and David is now officially an old fart of 65; now I get a couple of weeks to slow down before the WVBR. All I need to do for that is get my sleeping bag down to the Laundromat to get it cleaned and figure out how I’m going to pack my camping gear on the 16. And to puzzle over whether it’s the West Virginia Buell Rally, Reunion or Revival. Or maybe it’s all three? One thing’s for sure - it’s always a good time.

Patches posted a photo of a custom Softail over on the Indian’s Great/Sucks thread on Badweb that has some really good looking clamshell hard bags. I started investigating those bags because I was thinking they’s really look good on the Express. I couldn’t find a price, but looking at Ronnie’s parts fiche and checking the prices of the various parts has me thinking that, like everything the MoFoCo sells, they’re going to be priced outrageously. Then I looked at the 05 with its Hepco & Becker Junior bags, and it looks pretty damned good. The Gentleman’s Express will look just fine with a set of Juniors on it.

One thing about that tricked out Softail Sport Glide that has really piqued my interest is that it’s got a separate tach and speedometer. I’d like to find out what and how the builder did that. I prefer two separate instruments, but I was resigned to only being able to run the one. I’m going to have to find out more information, but damned if I know where to start. I guess that’ll be one of the continuing improvements once the rest of the build is done.

It kind of looks like I’m going to be holed up for today. It’s raining and I just looked at the radar and it’s a large area of rain. So I guess today’s a good day to do little things around the house. Maybe I’ll do a bit of reading or maybe even watch a movie. Or maybe I’ll just sit in front of the fan. It’s not hot, but the humidity is up and high humidity makes me sweat more and worse than hot temperatures do.

I just had a thought; I think I may be able to put the Juniors on the 16 now. I’ll have to go down to the garage and do some checking, but if I can, that would be good.

Now, I’m pumped up. I was going to write more, but instead, I’ll end here.
