  1. We're leaving Monday for a road trip following Route 66 from California to Chicago then on to Niagara Falls. I've got that part of the trip pretty well planned out. Assuming we're still able I'm thinking about the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, NC next and then through Nashville on our way back west. It looks like we'll go right through Pennsylvania and West Virginia to get to NC. Anyone have any recommendations on the best route avoiding major freeways or just for good motorcycle roads along the way? Thanks
  2. I agree entirely. I love the various antiHarley ads but I think they're going to "alienate some of the very people they are trying to woo". The HD rank and file are already deeply entrenched in the brand and there's only so many folks out there with that kind of money to spend on a motorcycle.
  3. NO BOOTS ON THE GROUND!!!! sounds right to me. At least if we went to war with China we wouldn't have to pay back the trillions of dollars we owe them...
  4. Wow, I've never done that before. Amazing and scary at the same time. Mine's a fairly new picture too. Looks like I need to get after the weeds in the front yard..... Thanks Mycom
  5. After all you've done I think checking the static timing's a good idea. It sounds like you've got everything it takes to make it run so maybe you don't have it at the right time. How that would happen sitting in the garage I can't say. You didn't mention compression. Do you have a compression tester? At least you didn't have to push it home....
  6. Yep, I've lived in SoCal about 30 years and it's a whole new game that's for sure but know what....yesterday I got off work early so I changed into some jeans and a tee shirt and put about 100 miles on the Chief...I didn't even take my jacket. When I got home I sat by the pool and drank a few beers enjoying the 80 degree weather. How's the weather in the Midwest?
  7. I heard the guy lives in Arabella ranch now...tall fella.
  8. I was told it was close to the RR tracks on Wineville, north of Bellegrave. Does that sound right?
  9. S&S Cycle and ExxonMobil Team Up to Develop Performance Cruiser Motorcycle for Jay Leno FAIRFAX, Va. (November 16, 2007) – As the owner of literally hundreds of unique vehicles, Jay Leno is not easily impressed by many of the new models on the market. But when he climbed onto the brand-new motorcycle presented to him by S&S Cycle and ExxonMobil, Leno was clearly thrilled. “Having ridden a variety of bikes, I can tell you that this motorcycle is really impressive. It represents the next generation of engineering and also meets 2008 California Tier II emission standards, so you c
  10. 10:00 PM PDT on Monday, August 27, 2007 By SARAH BURGE The Press-Enterprise A 54-year-old man was arrested Saturday night after leaving the scene of a crash in Perris with the body of a motorcyclist lodged in the rear window of the car he was driving. California Highway Patrol spokesman Ron Thatcher said the motorcycle rider, Nicholas Justin Campbell, 20, of Moreno Valley, was driving east on Highway 74 near Ethanac Road in Perris shortly before 8 p.m. when a car pulled in front of him from a parking lot. The motorcycle, which was going about 80 mph, crashed into the back of
  11. This article only discussed Anaheim and it sounded like they were only issuing warnings at this point but I think this sort of thing spreads quickly. 81 dB isn't very loud. Article on motorcycle noise control.
  12. Although I looked at their bikes I didn't buy from them and they know that. I do my own service work but I have bought a lot of parts there. I've found their prices to be competitive and with the exception of my recent rear tire adventure (which eventually worked out to my satisfaction) I haven't had any problems. I like buying my stuff there because I don't have to spend a lot of time and effort trying to figure out which Harley part number crosses over....
  13. Yesterday I was talking to Bill at Corona Indian about the 2008 models and why no prototypes had been seen. He said that he had personally seen the prototype. According to him it looks very much like the 2004 Chief, has a 103 cu in PP styled motor with bottle caps and the "significant internal changes" that were mentioned earlier on this forum. The motor is coupled to a 6-speed trans. He also said that KM planned to unveil the prototype at Sturgus this year (in August) and release them for sale in November. Don't know. Just repeating what I was told.
