    A few days on the TW and then this

    I spent a few days running about the city on the TW, Having a good time as usual, Wishing for some trail time instead of running around surface streets,
    Then I finally pulled out the bike I bought this winter during a snow storm and never got to ride,
    I went thru and tightened "Things" Cleaned it up, Pumped up the tires and did an alignment and pulled her out and spent an hour or so tooling around country roads,
    Wow its not the TW,
    I Did get out of 3rd a few times and even into 5th gear ! ! !
    Ide like to get a nice 2 into 1 exhaust,
    But again,
    Wow this thing runs,
    It had the regime rebuilt 550 miles ago and sure pulls hard,
    Anyway,
    1983 Harley FLT, stripped down of all its bags and a road king front end installed,
    All done before I bought it,
    OK OK,
    Pic of the bike,
    1983.jpg
    Its a rubber mounted Shovelhead with a 5 speed trans.
    I checked and Harley says it can tow 300 Pounds,
    Crap,
    I too was thinking "Tow rig for TW"
    Stay safe all !

    While I know this is the TW forum,
    Some of us here may have addictions and bad habits.
    While I do love my TW I also love the other two wheeled vehicles in my garage,
    I finally got around to getting the carbs rebuilt on the 1976 R90/6,
