Got some serious New years plans buddy, or just going to watch the mud dry up like we geezers do.. your having a change in international date line or you not.. guessing this is major news for Samoa..
So fill us in whats the plans..
Same question.. whats the plans for New Year's.. You guys staying in or going out. were doing a TCM old movie night.. (tell you more details, but don't want to get you to excited)..
By the way.. I made the mistake of looking at a Super Glide.. an 80-80 ..you know even tho its a shovel its all evo bottom end.. just the cylinder difference.. Gloria's LESS than excited about the deal.. but pretty sure i can talk her into it.. either that of get rid of the leathers.
hi kid.. pm back at ya.. hope you and the "crew" at Urban guns have a great one.. Thats defined as not shooting self in the foot (know what im talking about huh) .. Hi to Jimmy, and whats the plans.. staying in tonight or out on the town...
Per above.. our plans are so exciting i hesitate to talk about them.. Might make it till 8.. has to be new years somewhere by then.. mid Atlantic, Nova Scotia, maybe..
I don't do much usually but it is surprisingly warm here,damn near 40,so we are going to fire up the grill and fire pit,hang out and howl at the moon,i am on standby for snowplowing but that's for tomorrow.
are you testing me on that evo thing,they didn't come out until 1984,a good buddy of mine named"Z" bought one of the first wide glides in 1984,he let me throw my leg over it when he had only 22 miles on it,what a treat,and difference as i was riding an ironhead at the time....now that sporty was quick man,nothing but built up motor, two wheels,handlebars,and a small seat i used to suck up my ass,pucker factor +10.
i know Porshe was helping HD out with the Evo design back then,but i bow to your knowledge of the shovelhead,as i was to busy passing them on my sporty :)
Happy new year to all on GS. Dont think I will be doing much tonight, might get some beer or champagne and howl at the moon (literally) at midnight tonight. Got my wife to kiss once the ball drops, so Im in set to go. Hope everyone has a safe night and a fun night. I got my scope the other day, just had it bore sighted today...dont have anywhere to make the fine tuning so Im screwed. I had planed on going hunting 2morrow morning, but without it being properly sighted, it seems like a waste of time, maybe just go shoot a bit once the sun comes up and make it an evening hunt? What do yall think?
had three.. a kick 54 (883) an electric leg 60 IK, and one of the first evo sporties 883 in 84.. Did that factory buy back thing (remember you got your $ back on a big twin) had "issues" with my 883 the cam tolerances were so tight (to cut the noise) that mine seized after a couple thousand miles.. Had the SV HD do the change out on the cams, and put on a king sportster tank while in the shop..No issues with the superglide i traded for.. loved that scoot..
Yep the Porsche folks were part of a four cylinder project that didn't see the light of day, did lead to the Vrod, but to me thats just not a Harley.. good grief it even fires in time.. just wrong..
Shovels went thru so many iterations from 66 to 83 that you have to be real careful, the early ones were generator side covers just like the old Pan's and Knucks.. Cone heads took care of the electrics, then in 1980 they put in what would later become the evo bottom end..
Obviously the evo really saved the company.. That being said, it wasn't quite as "new" as the factory advertised.. the only real change was the aluminum cyl head of the evo.. but all else was tested by then, Lot of that was good publicity..
Had two Superglides.. bought the second used (95) it was highly modified by it's previous owner, and to be honest not any quicker than any of my sporties.. Got REAL lucky with my last (99) Electraglide.. (back issues by then) it was an ex police bike, and yes they do, or least did have a higher out put engine.. my first and only fuel injected, didn't like it as i couldn't fix it, but it ran so well im a convert.. fuel injection is great.. just that you can work on a S&S..
So tell me what have you done with your softail.. pipes and what?
vance and hines exhaust,Bob woods cam,just reliable,i can cruise all day at 75mph,top end just about 110mph,but with the windshield and saddlebags flying about it feels a little squirrely.Next bike is gonna be a big motor again,stripped down.I had fuel injection on my 2001 Victory,rode all over the country on it,used to look up dealers along the way so i about knew where to look if if it left me stranded along the road,or pushing it,never would leave a bike behind like i have seen some do.Anyway old habit from riding a Harley,after awhile i quit looking for dealers and just kept on going,fuel injection really helps in the Mountains to.
never a H.D.
I had a '53 Chief, an Ariel and a bunch of Japs.
This year when I get the H.D. ad in the mail I'll go take one for a ride.
not much going on here tonight, wife is working in Vegas, kids are doing their thing , so I am 'batchi'n it' with the pooch!!! Ought to be a good night...lol
have a wonderful 2012, may we all..........GET RID OF OBAMA!.....amen!
I'm not going to eat anything until next year!
Mrs. 'cutter & I went to a New Orleans style restaurant, I ordered a full size muffaletta. I ate more than half and can't find room for even a cup of coffee :<)
beats a poke in the eye!.....lol
was it a square four by any chance.. Love that old bike.. Never had one, but a friends dad got me into ridding back in the late 50's early 60's . Young but afraid of nothing.. YEAH RIGHT.... The old boy got the Norton .. trying to think of the name.. not the Commander.. Next one down.. Almost like a HD.. I swear you could feel every time one of the cylinders fired.. Least in my fear i could.. Remember this as the first time i was REALY scared.. Pretty sure it was the first time i had topped a ton to
Happy New Years everyone from BFT on out.. you all keep safe..
and I put bunches of miles on that smoothe running baby! Picture my white uniform, me on the Sq4 blasting down the wet muddy road, the bike had a bobbed rear fender. Yes, a wide brown stripe down the back of my white jumper!
My Ariel was an ex-police bike from England, traded it off for a Honda 175 dirt bike.
When I was a kid my neighbor had a Norton Commando, bad ass bike but he rode it like a little old lady. About the same time, a friend of mine came to my house on a Triumph, I got on back and he proceeded to (try) to scare the shiite outta me, adrenaline rush time! That had to be 1955 or '56. I've been a rider ever since.
I think the Norton you were talking about was prolly the "Dominator", 500cc thumper.
