    Since @usARMY11c got rid of his Harley. I decided to trade in my Buell 1125R for a 2006 Harley Davidson Softail Night Train. Came with a Vance & Hines Shortshot exhaust, HD 6 spoke wheel, Corbin seat, & Carlini bars. So far, I like it a lot. Sucks that I can't ride until this weather gets Warmer.

    The 30 mile home in 25 degree weather was comfortable (apart from my testicles retracting to my stomach). I do need 3" forward extensions in order to stretch the legs out. Was looking for a street or road glide but came across this which is perfect for my needs. @usARMY11c. Yours was a Dyna right?

    I'll let you know how it goes when I warms up. The seat is form fitting and a foam seat

    Need a new set of tires going into the summer season. I've gotten a strong recommendation for the Michelin Pilot Road 4's, but might be a little rich for my taste since I just got laid off from work and want to be as economical as I can. However, that said, I know tires are super important, and I will drop the $350 for the PR4s if others recommend them as well.

    Any thoughts, recommendation, or guidance/learning to share on tires? My riding style is about 40% commute/get around town, 60% day riding out into the country for twisties and long straights, usually going faster than I should.

    FRONT- 120/60-ZR17 MC (55W), tubeless
    REAR - 160/60-ZR17 MC (69W), tubeless

    I hadn't seen this on the list and I stop by almost daily.

    I had the PR3 on my 1125R and they held up exceptionally well. Mine was 75% highway and 25% everything else. My Corsas didn't last long on the highway, but the PR3 held up well. I'd recommend them. @Cutter

    And if you can get them cheaper online and take the rim in for mount and balance, that may save you some dollars too.

    Ordered up, going to see if a friend has a set of wheel stands I can borrow to remove the tires myself. Found out that I can fit a 120/70 on the front with a slight fork adjustment. I guess it will solve for a speedometer problem as well (I guess the 120/60 would give wrong readings?). It's $25 a wheel if I bring them in, $80 per if I bring the whole bike. So, I'm really hoping to figure how to remove them myself. Grabbing the service manual and doing some studying.

    Every bike I own is in pieces and I don't have enough incentive / motivation / time to work on them.

    91 Yamaha XT 600 - put a new piston in last summer after the head started acting up and leaking oil. Old piston was fine but since I had the jug off I said wtf why not. Engine is currently sitting in the frame and that's where she sits.

    88 Yamaha XT 350 - Ah this mother fucker I got for $150 and it needed a new carb. Bought a new / used one off ebay and tore down the engine / reassembled it. Engine is ready to go back on something, the bike needs a lot of resto work though minus the frame so it would be a total rebuild minus the engine

    This isn't a motorcycle, but I have a in my parens basement as well

    Bitch kept overheating a few summers ago and I couldn't figure out wtf was going on. Swapped out radiators, replaced gaskets, just did everything under the fucking sun I could think of to get that bitch to run right, never would. Tore her down eventually and man that 250 motor was in rough shape. It's been bored out to the max and the head is all dented to fuck. If I ever decide to do anything with it I'll buy a motor off a yz-250 and throw it in there and have one bad bitch of a 3 wheeler. I'm in no rush to fix this thing, it's a death machine and the older it gets the more $$$ its worth.

    Not a motorcycle, but here's my 78 bronco which is sitting in my garage with a thrown lifter (I assume) atm - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WX9L395ZMss

    Nice set!

    I picked up a 2000 Sportster XL1200C last weekend. Ordered up some mid controls which should be here tomorrow. Friend has a set of Burley Slammer kit which I'll install on Saturday. Thing runs pretty strong.

    Thanks @Dr. Fangs404 . I'm trying to talk my wife into letting me get a motard now. Hasn't happened yet, but one day!

    And installed the rear shocks on the bike in about 15 minutes. Bike sits about 1/2" lower which also allowed my wife to flatfoot the bike. I'm 6'2" and she's 5'2". I don't care, I still tear up the road with that little bike lol.
