    Thanks The Wood Wolverine, love it so far, it really eats up the curves.... 50 mph winds doesn't make for a good ride.

    It looked fine when I left for a ride on the RT Friday.

    I had that happen quick to my bike a couple of years ago - saw this when I stopped to gather a friend for a ride. Needless to say I went home instead.

    Tires are very very thin when they get to that point!

    Haven't even been on the bike this year. I set up a battery tender to keep it charged, and that is it. This was probably the last time I rode, 10/27/19.

    What you looking to get, or are you still trying to decide?

    I've been told by most of my friends if I get something other than a Harley they won't ride with me.:rofl: :lol: So I'm looking at a roadking and street glide. I'm leaning towards newer with ABS. It's been quite a few years since I've put any real miles on.

    I took my beautiful wife for a 281 mile ride on her birthday last Sunday. Got her some new overpants and boots. :thumbs:
    Stopped at a local to TurboDiesel BBQ joint on his recommendation. It was great!!

    That’s about as far over as I can get the bike with her on back.

    I like to leave a little in reserve anyway.
