I love threads like this...it humbles me to find I don't speak proper sportster. I'm so thankfull that although we make mistakes here in this forum, many just let it go and enjoy the show.
I'm an auto mechanic and I speak mechanic . So when I listen non-mechanics speaking the lingo and throwing out a few "mechanic words", I sometimes smile inside and chuckle.....but I know what they are trying to say, and just let out the line.
