Terry,
Just a thought, while looking at the TH, I notice that you don't have the A/C on yet, don't forget to leave room for it when you are installing the solar panels. I'm sure you remembered, but just in case.
Frank

Hi Frank, Yup its on the list, before I install the AC I want to go thru it and check it out, clean ect. I have taken some measurements and it doesn't look like there is room to install panels close, plus I don't want to shade a panel w/the AC. Thanks for the reminder, you never know what I'll forget .

Sorry to hear about you sons bike, I haven't heard about a problem with the bearings......yet. I do know that the quality control in the factory is beyond exceptional, I've been to the factory in York, Pa. and to see how they build is really neat, that being said of course they don't build the bearing, they source from other factory so are at the mercy of others. Hope the tornados missed you!!
Yea I'm Honda trained and it's hard for me to understand the philosophy of " if it breaks from vibration let's throw more steel at it"
I've owned Metric Cruisers with "V" twins that don't shake near as much. My Big Yamaha twin uses the same 270 crank angle and it is almost completely smooth. But they sell a lot of Harley so something is working...

When the Dealerships Recovery Trailer showed up to get him off the side of the road they admitted they had seen a lot of rear bearing failures lately. Must be a bad batch of Chinese bearings. The Chinese QC is ridiculous. I won't buy anything Chinese if my life depends on it working.

But the funny part about the Trailer Guys statement is they admitted they pick up more BMW motorcycles than Harleys. AND what is my son looking at replacing his Fat Boy with? A BMW! I though I taught him to be smarter than that. I researched for two years for a bug Adventure Bike and chose the Super Tenere' for its engineering and cost. PLUS it was a blank canvas for my crash bar designing business.

Well I gotta got check for damage from last night's storms. We got lucky. Melissa was up most of the night and I crashed about 4:30 this morning
Had a busy day yesterday. Just couldn't keep my eyes open any longer so I told her to wake me up if the Tornado Warning on her Ham Radio went off.
Ah country life!

Lynne are the two coaches you are looking at in Texas down near your sisters in Houston?

BYE YA'LL

HH, I don't put the snow plow away until May, I still have studded snow tires on DW's Explorer! Curtis, I can see us having many discussions about Honda/Harley (always friendly of course) The tech that worked for me and I would always go back and forth, ( I always won because I signed his paycheck) . I once visited the zippo lighter museum and I saw hundreds of lighters with Harley on them, not one Honda in sight. Sorry I had to throw that one in there, all in good fun. I have a bunch of them.

Hi Curtis and Terry;
Please lets not get into the Harley vs Honda debate. They do have one thing in common. Both mechanically have the Harley/Honda miles. Both seem to read consistently fast when it come to the speedometer.

I really do not care what you ride. I will ride with you if you love the thrill of riding without brand b*lls*it thrown in. Although . . . . . a little friendly joshing can be fun.

I can take it but I also dish it out. LOL

Several of my friends have gotten into dual sports. Considering all the back roads I could ride here in MT, it's tempting...but bikes scare me and I'm practically fearless!

Gordon, not to fear! I just like the friendly joshing on the subject, I like alot of different brands, my first bike was a 125cc Benelli, of course my second was a 48 Indian Chief, wish I still had that bike, couple of friends bet me to ride it down the hallway at school...........yup I did in one door out the other, they just held the doors for me, got held outta school for a week, but that was ok it gave me time to ride . MT, I have thought about duals too because I would ride here when the roads are not so nice. Have a great day all.

Had a coughing bout earlier today but wasn't intense. Craved some meat so did a can of sirloin chunky soup with homemade bread (low sugar & low salt). Ate half of it as I didn't want to push my luck. Dogs gladly shared the rest. So on the mend but not there yet. Still real low on energy.

HH, just take it slow and don't push your luck, sounds like your getting there though. Its going to take awhile to get your energy back. Hang in there.

Hi guys, just a quick note to let you all know we are back in Thailand! The one month went so fast! Dropped the MH off at Sunland sales in Glendale, Az. It was a sad day for sure, as it turned out to be a great one! Averaged over 10 mpg for the trip! Talk more later! Rail!

Almost feels this morning like my lungs have cleared up some. Still get light headed if I try to do too much which really isn't much. The amoxicillin is the right drug for this crap but doesn't work over night.
