Thumbs up A Day in the Life...

I'm starting this thread so that I (and anyone else who wants to join in) can share daily adventures, observations, experiences & photos of owning and riding a Harley-Davidson.

**************************

It's beginning to warm up in northern Mississippi, so I'm much more likely to be riding my Sporty or Softail, than the Tri-Glide.

It'll be another 9-10 months before I'm riding in the snow again.

A couple of photo's from just 2 months ago, when it was 25* -

It's a special day when your daughter fires up a Harley for the first time.

And grandson puts some parts back on the 1200 - not the clutch, Grampa did that, just installing the case cover. Yes, he followed up with a torque wrench! 5 years old here.

Daily Adventures:

I got out and rode yesterday. Been working up in Washington and Airizona for a bit, so it was dang nice getting back home.

Experiences:

I finally got my ole sporty '96 choppa back to normal. This was the first ride in about two years since some snowflake texter decided to put a Toyota imprint in the small of my back. (Still got it). As you know I been riding with a red primer colored rear fender all this time, but finally found a '96 original factory paint to match! Gave it a good shakedown yesterday. And cleared my brain.

The pic below, I was trying to get the dang pic challenge of a drive-in. Funny, that challenge was last week!

Lucky me.

Pic of my bike in the Badlands of South Dakota on Saturday. Rode with my wife with her on her Heritage. One of the best days riding I have ever had. Love riding with her.
