Is it mostly Harleys or are there a lot of rice-burners?

100% Harleys. It's the Harley Owners Group national rally.

BTW the radio report of 8,000 bikes was complete bullshit. 2,700 signed up for the ride.

I convinced my self and spent an hour with the polish yesterday before taking it out to enter. They turned me away and said only their members were welcome to enter. :evil:

On the way home it pissed down rain and now it looks like it hasn't been washed in months. :roflmao:

I bit the bullet and ordered a BDL open primary belt drive for the bike. I'm really excited to get it from the states and get it fitted. Looking forward to the noise. :roflmao:

2. Remembers the last time a Harley rider waved back, he impaled his hand on spiked helmet.
1. They're too tired from spending hours polishing all that chrome to lift their arms.

You guys with motorcycles are fortunate. I got to ride my (old) dad's motor scooter last summer. Closest I ever got.

Lots of them here are the midlife crisis guys who haven't ridden a bike since their teens and go to a harley shop when they are 50 with wife and kids in tow. Buy a new Hog, t shirts, jonny rebs, belt and keychain, pocket knife, leather jacket and HOG membership all in one transaction.

OK, I finally did it while I still could. Not a Harley but it suits me. Covered 200 K's on the ride home without a stiff butt after 15 years of not being in the saddle. Felt great.

Good on ya Tracker, just don't do like I did. Leg is finally stating to heal. Ultra sonic machine is working. Not familiar with your bike what is it?

Not a big one OCG, Kawasaki Vulcan 900cc Cruiser. Been for a few rides now and seems to be working fine. Completely different, sitting in a bike with the legs out front instead of sitting on top. Definitely a cruiser, not a racer but then I am past those days now. :8)
