By the way, there is trick to help get that fat beast off the stand easier, turn the handlebars all the way right. I was surprised how much difference that made. Getting off the stand is the only...

It felt like a completely different bike to me. While I can never get enough power, the power in my 2014 Rushmore feels adequate for the job. My 2009 Ultra always struggled. Also, the handling is...

Is this subject really outdated?

Not anymore. MSF teaches the opposite, leave it in gear. I guess cable technology is better.

I hadn't though about it until another poster mentioned it, but once I put my Harley in gear after...

My SG and RKCs felt more sporty without the TP.

One of the general complaints of the Touring model frames before 2014 was the forks flexing during turns. I never felt that flex on my SG or RKs...

Well, I understand that opinions are like flip-flops, everyone has two and they have no arch support. Those bars make no sense to me.

The grade doesn't matter. But Grade 8, or even 5, is overkill. I went to polished stainless Allen heads because I like their appearance better. But, if for whatever reason, the Allen head is striped...

Mrs. Beary called me yesterday at work and asked where I keep the jumper cables. Then she smartly realized that she has never jumped a car in her sexy 60 years of life. "Never mind, I will call AAA"....

I don't know, linked brakes have been installed on other bikes for a long time without major law suits, so you may have a long wait. I do agree with you in theory that you don't want the front brake...

I don' know this is hard to accept, I'm learning through my kids friends that most millennials trade-in their cars when they start having problems. To be fair, one only needs open the hood of new...

I'm surprised they even considered installing outside parts. They wouldn't install a non Harley tire for me because they claimed insurance would not cover them if the tires caused an accident.

I agree. I've owned and rode along with riders of many brands, and Japanize bikes are by far the most reliable. If I were buying purely from my observation and experience of reliability, I would be...
