So before I go any further how do you make the photos smaller ? But most important is anyone interested in another Alaska ride report?

No clue on pics, but yes on report. How did the Harley handle it?

Of course we are interested.
The pictures look good large.Better they are large than too small.
How do you like the RK after riding the Bmw ?
Do you get much buffeting from the windshield and how tall are you ?
I have owned a Electra glide and Road glide but never even rode a Road king.If I bought another Harley I would like a RK if the airflow was ok.
Where in Ohio are you from?
I grew up in Genoa, Ohio (NW) but ride all over Ohio, especially SE.
I look forward to your report.

We live in Mentor, Ohio. The RK performed flawlessly. I am 5ft 8.5 inches tall. People complain about the buffeting but I don't have a problem. Can't forget that .5 inch its important. This is my 3rd HD. I still have my R1100RSL and ride it regularly. They are both very good machines just different. I enjoy them both.

I went alone and had a ball. The start of the Stewart Cassair HW. It was a muddy mess slippery as snot and took me 12 1/2 hours to go 275 miles.

And as a Road King owner and Harley semi-novice (only semi because I've had one almost a year now), I'd love to hear how you found the ride on the bike.

That's a bear proof garbage can. It isn't actually on the bike although it does kinda look like it is. We are at a road side rest on the Hudson Hope Loop Taking some photos. These cans are on the side of the road for trash.

Fuse block with the maxi fuse removed so I can change the fuel filter in the gas tank.

This is the old filter beside the knew filter. The one I replaced had about 27K miles on it.
