Second childhood I guess! :lol: ......good for roaming the airport, I paid $50 bucks, early 80's model, and it was never used, probably because it's a P.O.S.!!!!!!!.......Can't remember how many times I've rebuilt the clutch!!!!!....my kids like it, as long I keep fixin' it!...and those guys build cars? :shock:

Actually they make amazingly reliable cars. I used (actually still own) to own a 1980 Peugeot 505 Turbo Diesel with 300000 + miles on it and the thing just kept on going. The engine block had never ever been opened. I never had problems with the car and I took it all over the place in Europe (including across the Alps). If you ask me Peugeot cars are way more reliable than Mercedes or BMW cars. THe car stayed in a barn for 5 years without being started and when I tried it it started right away. I just had to use jumper cables.

That's a good-lookin' Harley, and nice LW. You look like your having a good time! What year is your bike? I really like the paint color/scheme. Duke

Caveman, great jacket! Schott? Great look to it.
Thanks man. Good eye. Yeah Schott 689H in HH.

The Harley I rode was actually the first time I've ever ridden one. I've only owned and ridden sportbikes and cafes in my riding career. Gotta say I really, really liked it. With the dealer installed Samson pipes it sounded great from the saddle. Ride was super comfy especially compared to the bonnie which is a torture rack by comparison. Only thing I need to get used to is the longer wheelbase and weaker front brake.

One of these days...

I love the old school look of the Cross Bones. I wish I could afford one as a second bike. I could never give up my Electra Glide though. You just can't beet the comfort of that bike!

That kind of looks like what my Dad was riding in these pictures taken in Hawaii in 1941 just weeks before the Pearl Harbor atack.
