Ha. I hear ya. I have owned many bikes over the years. Some were Harleys and others were not. So I understand what your saying. They made changes after 99 that did help with vibration. In 2000 they came out with the Twin cam 88 engine. The twin cam features two camshafts and was rubber mounted to isolate vibration. Big help! In 2001 they used twin counterbalancers that cancel out most of the engines vibration. Mine is a 2001 I purchased new. It's been a good bike and has never been in the shop or broken down. I rebuilt the carb last week for the first time. Kit was $50 bucks. Runs like a top.

You actually may have had the twin cam in your 99. I think they changed mid year. Bottom line is most Harley riders never bought them for performance. They bought them because they look cool and the chicks dig em.

My husband does the driving I do the waving. Don't always get a return wave, or know if they see mine, but just in case- I wave.

I did hear that the 2000 fixed a lot of the vibration problems, but along with that and the fact that all the chrome started rusting from day one, even though kept inside when not in use, I moved on! It sure looked pretty though! I finally sold my last bike when I got run off the road for the 2nd time in two weeks on highway 41A in Clarksville TN. I left a BIG boot print in the drivers door of the guy that hit me though!
He called the police to complain, but I had already called them and provided my information along with the contact numbers of two witnesses! One of whom followed him to get his license #, and one of whom stopped to help me get the bike out of the center grass strip/drainage! No damage except mud on everything. The police couldn't cite him because they didn't see it, but they told him that he was libel for any damages to my bike and would be smart not to pursue getting paid for the damage to HIS car!

Did the Harley "point" when I rode. Do the classic car wave when I have it out. And continue the tradition with the RV. I wave no matter what.

I wave at all that go bye, but seldom get a wave back, once in a while though someone does, my wife thinks I am a loon for waving, when we traveled last year to NC. staying at mostly KOA's which my wife feels safer at those, we only had one nice conversation with a couple, seemed everyone else was wanting to be left alone, I am the kind of guy that will stop and ask about their coach and where someone is headed, seemed that most of them didn't want to be bothered,

Things have changed since we started RVing in 1999. We had an inexpensive 5er. Virtually all RVs waved at us and we waved back. People would offer to help set up. People stopped to talk all the time. None of that seems to happen much anymore. If 5 people walk by walking their dogs one might say hello! Takes some of the fun out of it. We wave!!

Stop over and see me. I'd be glad to tell you about my coach and where I'm heading. And I wave at all other coaches!
