• It's Spring, ready to ride? Let's be sure..

    So, it's starting to warm up all over the country. Batteries are being charged for that long awaited day of starting up that metal beast in hopes of an enjoyable ride. With that being said, it's important to remember your basics. I write this because I myself am a victim of this. , Fuel-OK, Ignition-OK, Neutral-OK, Engine-OK. This is quite important, not as basic as it seems. If you miss one step, your bike wont run! So, before you start to troubleshoot why your bike isn't starting--double check your neutral.

    Just a few quick tips to make your upcoming rides run more smoothly.

    Well I should Hope Harley-Davidson would enjoy strong US domestic sales!

    ... you still have to grind the rivets and punch the pins out, now you just can't lay it on something as easy.
