    Oh I had some old junker Kawasaki dirt bike when I was 11 or 12. My dad had(s) a late 70s Honda CX500 that sat with bad gas for too long. We always tried to get it running, but it was never the same :(

    After high school I found an old Honda Silverwing, which was kind a neat bike. Not my picture

    Without all the 80's ferring and side boxes it wasn't a bad looking bike. It still is sitting in my parent's back barn, and I still pay the $8 registration on it every year :facepalm:

    I have never had my cycle license and every year consider it. But even in a small city in Des Moines, I get cut off or almost run into daily with a 6,000 lb crew cab 4x4 truck. Being just on a 600 lb bike seems like a bad idea . . .:ohnoes::ohnoes::ohnoes:

    Amen!

    You can ask almost any harley rider what they have planned for the bike and get a list back of $5k+ worth of mods...whether it's stock or already sporting $10k worth of mods. :)

    If you go 3" drag bars, then you have to ditch the mustache bar, and that lay-z-boy sofa. Just sayin :D

    What do you guys think about these? Post up some links if you have them handy!

    Sportster Drag Bar | Handlebars | Official Harley-Davidson Online Store


    Supposedly this bike has the 1250 big bore kit and n4 cams and more. This sucker will lift the front tire off the ground in 1st-3rd.

    I agree about that dang back rest. it would do a lot for the bike if it was removed. The wife won't be riding it till after the baby is born and that'll put us in January. I doubt she would get on it any time before April, too. I'm open to removing the mustache, too! :lol:

    Those look good! See if there is a Leather Badlander seat for the Sporty. It is a good looking seat, and if momma doesn't ride much, it will work great. I have one, and my wife hates it!

    I'm sporting a solo seat...Mustang wide tripper. Wife would probably hate it if she didn't have her own scoot. :D

    Starting to look a little more like a sportster, again.

    Nothing wrong with a sissy. I have the quick-detach version, so I can pack for long rides
