Oh yeah, I know! It's just I never stop to take photos anywhere else.

The reason you get those photos is because it is 5 minutes from my house.

That and when it comes to offroad (dirtroads, whatever) I really would like to find someone else to ride around with as doing alone does not seem to be a really smart idea. (Being it would be my first time on the roads here in AZ.) I do not want to be the guy getting saved by helicopter and shown on Channel 3.

H54 was my grandfather's number in Ohio as a police officer, he got the same number when they first started personal plates. Later my father lived in PA and had the same number. He then had the number after my grandfather had passed in Ohio and he now has it in Alabama. My sister has the number in Ohio, and as you can see I have it in AZ.

Cool huh?

In any case there's the lower seat I can mount. ...even if... when visited last HD Dealer he told me his daughter was shorter than me and riding a GS1200 (degenerate daughter): "It's a matter of habit"...
Or I might increase my weight

Anyway SHE HAS TO BE MINE!!!!!!!!


BELLA LI'!!

The Uli or the dealers daughter?????

I wish. It has its proper tags now. I could ride it in the area where I live, it is all private roads, but I added the tags after transfer.

Picked my Uly up Saturday. Unloaded it, took it for a spin around the block! Supposed to get up to 50F later this week. :)

Your not going to ride in those jeans are you? Remember: Stupid hurts!

I hit some pea sized gravel once and was wearing jeans. Thankfully I had a leather jacket on. It was about 98 degrees out. I only hit down on my knee but I'll never do that again. Cheese grader road rash!

Congrats Steve!!

It got up to about 60 here on Saturday, but I was teaching class this weekend so I didn't get to do much riding (other than to and from class).

Maybe next weekend....

I rode around the block, literally. The carharrt wasn't going to offer any real protection either, nor the hiking boots.

Hey, you make your choices, you take your chances.

Nice bike fellas! Buells have never been my thing but it's nice to see another big trailee out there. And it is a very photogenic bike. Very, well... Buell-esque.
