    I hit the 14k milestone last weekend. Worked on the bike all day today between rain showers, getting ready for my vacation in a couple of weeks. Gonna try to put 1k on it during the 9 days. It will be easy, weather permitting... B)

    Nice! Be safe.

    I'm about ready for my first (600 mile) service. Only took about 6 weeks :/

    I'm getting ready to head out for a 4th of July ride. My goal is to ride at least 250 miles.

    Ride fast, ride safe everyone... B)

    I just got home 15 minutes ago from a great day of riding, then fireworks.

    I easily met my mileage goal for the day...

    I am heading out for an overnight trip to York, PA in the morning. I am going to ride down tomorrow and check into the room I just booked moments ago. Then on Thursday morning I am going on a tour of the Harley-Davidson plant and then ride home. I have wanted to do this for a long time and decided it was time I did it on summer vacation this year... B)

    I hit the 15k milestone on my bike 2 days ago. I got a late start riding this year and it has been a rainy season, but nevertheless I am really beginning to rack up the miles in the saddle this year. I am about 100 miles from hitting the 3k mark, and it only took me 3 weeks to go from 14-15k.

    As always, ride safe everyone... :)

    Dag Rick, you must be one'a them leatherbutts. I can get about 100 miles in in fun, rhythm-y back roads ride, but then I'm done for the rest of the day. I could use a bike with better ergos, but not quite there yet. 300 miles in a day is what I'd do if I were taking a trip somewhere, and that's pushing it by about 50 miles. Which is pushing it by another 50.

    How long did you ride for that 300 miler day?

    Reminds me, I need to make another trip sometime out west a ways. I missed Spring time on the Blue Ridge Parkway, but here's a link to this ride I did with a buddy from Nova Scotia a few years back.

  • I read where H-D's sales are way off. The generations after the boomers are not showing interest in motorcycling and especailly 30K hogs.

    In all seriousness, last night I read where H-D sales are down. Hopefully it won't last.

    Getting ready to head out the door for my trip...

    Just past halfway I had to stop for cover when I ran into an unexpected summer shower.

    It is starting to clear up and I will be back on the road shortly...

    Yes Sir, Liebs island. They have been doing a lot of work around there. The upgraded parks are going to be very nice. Some of the new lake houses are beautiful too. Unfortunately it would extend my commute another 14 miles. I would like own one though.

    Rick88 is still listed just not active. Took his bike and rode off
  • He said his good bye in his favorite thread, apparently.
