I don't have any of that nice stuff.

But I ride a Harley, so no knee-dragging to be had.

Good move. Save the money that you would have otherwise spent on riding gear and get yourself a good roadside assistance plan.

Maybe back in the AMF days that held true...but usually if there was a problem with the bike, once you redid the gaskets, the oil leaks were gone for good.

Only issue I had was with the fuel management I installed. Sent it in to Vance and Hines, came back fixed, that was it.

I must confess to a penchant for agricultural machinery myself. Sod the tassels, the 'Born to Ride' Eagle Spirit air cleaner covers, ape hangers, sissy bars, the skull paraphernalia and the maltese cross rear brake lights...gotta keep it pure and spartan.

Looks good!

Yeah I'm not into a lot of the Harley culture stuff. A lot of it is leave it for me, but to each their own.

Always loved the bikes from the time I was little.

I love sport bikes, but I don't like riding them. Too uncomfortable for me, and would only be worth it if I was going to do serious track stuff.

Mine attached. May be ordering a '16 Street Bob soon...has mini-apes, but you can get the engine chrome, and I'm not really into the blackout look personally.

I Ride: the inevitable waves of change
Got two helmets. Schuberth for the Autobahn simply because they're by far the best at blocking wind noise and I ride a naked.
Nolan stoner replica for everything else because I turn joghurt into hot lava

Glad to see that line used in the US as well Jums.


Seems almost universal with the tractors

Ixon touring jacket
Also have a cheaper RJays jacket

Ryajys all weather pants
Also have a pair of (now) very ratty Dragging Camo Jeans

ONeal boots

RJays ADV helmet

Gloves were Rjays but were destroyed last year when I wrote the bike off but did their job with no grazes on the hands etc

May be cheaper stuff but I am a cheapskate
