Harley Evo Motor Oil Change

 

 

I just fired up the Fat Boy for the season.

I got the old girl out of the shed and charged up the Battery, and zoom zoom, potato, potato, the sweet sounds of the Harley exhaust came rumbling to life. Winter around here puts a nice coat of sleepy dust on the bikes and leaves them raring to roll. Well I got a safety inspection, paid the man the licensing money and Whammo We are on the road. The miles on the old girl are 59400 to start the season. I did get a chance to ride all the way across town and back last night. Nice night for a freeway roll. I burned the carbon out of the old Haley 80 cubic inch evolution motor with that season opening 50 mile ride. I was also lucky enough to drive her to work today. I did have a bit of a slow starting problem this morning. I guess I struggle to get this old bike to start on the first touch of the starter continues. I was also coughing a bit on hard acceleration from a stop. I don't think it's lean, I think it is a bit rich in the carburetor now. Well anyway in the back of my mind I may need a engine rebuild. The thing does run great once I get it started. It like to pull and go fast on the freeway. I almost forget how great that bike is to ride, when It sits for the winter. I fit inside the saddle and around the bars very well on the old FLSTF. Man I love that bike, I think I might go for a spin at lunch.

"Game On" The king is back on the Road.

Today is a fantastic day, Sunny and warm in the 70's for April 1st and we are in luck. We are also back in the saddle again and getting 45 Mile Per Gallon on the good ole Harley Road King. Man that first sensation of the Summer is great O-70 in 3 gears and one long hard twist of the throttle as I passed that stupid little car to get up to speed on the Highway. I wanted to make a note that the King has 11,400 miles on it. So this is where I start riding for the season. I plan to rack up some big miles this year. Last year was a minimal riding season for me, so I need to make it up, and put down some serious tread. I will also need a new tire soon so I might as well burn up the old one before the state says I must get it replaced.

This weekend I need to put a clean new shine on the bike, so if the weather holds I'll make the King feel like a real king. I'll also check all the fluids and brakes and give it a quick once over.

Early Spring Harley Ride coming Soon

I am ready the bike is ready, the weather is just about ready. I gotta get eh scooter out and burn up some gas. The crazy up and down of one warm day and three days of snow is making this spring a mess. Maybe one of these would help as I am stuck driving the Truck and paying 4 bucks a gallon for diesel.



No, maybe not I think I just need to Ride!!!!!!!!!1

Early Spring Harley Ride.

Today is March 24th it was snowing this morning and now looks bright and clean and warm out the window. I know it is not warm, but it looks like it.

I know I am once again talking about the weather in SLC. I guess this is as much a place for me to track when I start and stop riding each year as it is an interesting bit of SLC riding information. I know I could ride a lot more, just tough out the weather and go, but I choose to wait. I m not sure if this is reflection on getting older or being lazy or both I have seen lots of Big Bike hitting the road already this year. Which is Awesome, and now that gas and Diesel prices are once again way to high on a false premise I must start to ride the bike and save some cash and wear and tear on my Truck. I think I will go home and fire the bike up and put some fresh gas in it after burn some in the sun.

Novemeber 4th Sunny and Warm in SLC

This post is almost a repeat of a post last year on November 17th. It is absolutely fantastic weather today lows of about 45 and highs of 65, and I got to ride my King today. I remember why I love Bikes so much. I missed the chance to ride a lot lately, as life and being busy seems to get in the way of riding solo. All the way to work I thought about this post from last year and wondered when it was. The 17th is later than the 4th but this give me hope that I can ride a few more days before the snow and gravel falls on the roads.

Last years initial thoughts.
November 17th and it was sunny and warm in SLC
You should all know that that means. I got to ride my King again today.

Ride safe!

The Road king is still in the garage.

I did not pull the trigger and sell the Road King. Which is good, good for me good for you, good for all who have Harley's.

Peace out.

I am thinking of selling my RoadKing

I am thinking about selling my 2006 Harley Davidson Road King. For a number of reasons, financial and future investment type decisions. I have a lot of money tied up in motorcycles and would like to move it into other things like real estate. As we all know the real estate market is upside down and all kinds of broken. I think now is a good time to move up into a newer bigger house. But I need cash flow to move forward, I could sell stocks, or not they are in the toilet and all money is lost. At least my Harleys are keeping their value. At least they look like they are are keeping some value, I may not be able to sell them but if I do know they haven't gone down by too much, certainly not 70 percent like the stock market or HOG stock for that matter. Yup I did buy some Harley Stock a few years a ago and I have taken a beating, and by beating I mean a serious drubbing, I bought at 64+ and now it's 9. Al least I have a completely paid of Motorcycle that has keep some value. Well anyway I am going to test the sales market for Road Kings and let you know.

Nintendo Wii Christmas Crazyness.

I need to say I love the Christmas Holiday season. Maybe a bit too much, what I mean is each year I get caught up in the video game craze, I talk to all the kids in the neighbor hood and the guys at work, and find out what is hot and what is not. Then I have to have it. This year is Mario Kart for the Nintendo Wii I just have to have it, from me, and no one else. I have searched high and low and I was able to find a copy at a local store tonight. Lucky for me, but if you are not so lucky there is still hope if you want to pay a bit more. Amazon has sellers that still have it available and you can still get it for Christmas, or you can turn to ebay, and pay your money and take your chances.



And if you get this game I think you need an extra wheel or two.

The Wii is still one of the best game system around, our family loves it and the kids get a work out when they turn it on and try to compete at an Olympic level. The Wii game console is available this year so if you don't have one you should consider it. I even saw one at a store tonight, sitting behind the counter ready for sale, unlike last year, but that's another story. You guessed it last year I had it have it ended up with two and lost 100 bucks selling the extra one. Oh well live and love.
