'81 FXE that I've had for 26 years.
'06 Custom Bobber that I built for my wife.
'08 Heritage Classic. My "geezer glide" for the long runs. Just have to figure out how to haul it with the MH we just bought. Used to haul it in the TT toy hauler.

Harley Sportster (how to haul)

We have a Harley Sportster. I passenger and it is a rough ride for me. Just got an RV DP and are still figuring out easiest way to take it with us (instead of towing the car). We have been told not go mount directly behind the RV because of heat coming off the back. Anyone with ideas, please pass them on.

We tow our two on a small trailer.

We use the cruiser lift and friends use the hydralift. There are no heat issues. We have the goldwing on the lift and tow an f150 with the lift behind a tiffin phaeton 40 single axel

Yeah, its my top fuel harley. I've had it for about 8 years. I took last year off and just about have it ready for a few races this year. On a good day it will run 6.8's and about 208 mph in the quarter. On a bad day...airlifted to trauma center, ten days in the hospital, 3 months in a wheel chair and more surgery than I care to remember. Its not the brightest thing I've ever done.

Oh No!!! Not sure how this will be received.


Harley-Davidson unveiled its first electric motorcycle Thursday, and promised it will still sound really cool.

"The sound is a distinct part of the thrill," chief marketing officer Mark-Hans Richer said in a news release. "Think fighter jet on an aircraft carrier."

The electric Harley, dubbed Project LiveWire, isn't for sale yet. The iconic motorcycle manufacturer kicks off a promotional tour next week to give customers a chance to test the bike, which it says will have all the edge of a gas-guzzling hog.

----prototype goes 53 miles on a charge?? but 0-60 in 4.+ seconds

Well there is a reason they call it the Harley OWNERS Group and we call ours the RIDERS Association of Triumph. Unbiased opinion - even though I do ride a Triumph.

53 miles on a charge is not going to find a huge following. We usually take our Harleys out for day trips, not rides to the local store.

I'm sure the battery technology will improve. Nice concept! Still, it's a novelty for the Prius folks and posers...

I know what you mean, I belong to the Goldwing Road Riders Association.
