I have an 05 Harley Sportster. I just started riding last October, so I started off small to get the hang of it. I will eventually move up when I feel comfortable with all aspects of the bike. I would really like to build my next bike. We have different things in our area too. This weekend it is "thunder on the ave". Now it is getting kind cold here, I had to bring out my leather and it is only September :/ Really sucks. I will have to clean up my bike and get a couple of pics (my gf put some nice book marks on my pipes)
lol im one of em....stupid wheelies are addicting as hell specially when u learn to ride em far...yes here in california it's still 90 degrees ..im riding in a shirt and pants everyday ...bout mid december ill prob pull out the gloves and the jacket
Damn that must be nice, by the end of October, I have my bike in my garage under a cover until next year :/ Does your gf like riding? Mine does, her Dad has a custom built bike, the kind with the huge back tire, so she has been around it her whole life. Hehe this past weekend we got some funny shirts. Mine says If you can read this, the bitch fell off. Hers says, This bitch doesn't fall off.
lol yea ive seen those t shirts they are funny as hell....i usually roll out in thoe honk if u think im sexy one...feels like a damn traffic jam with all those horns im hearing lol naw just playing...
yea she likes ridin..i wouldnt say loves it but she dont mind goin with me every few times....shes pretty crazy though when we get on the free way shes constantly grabbin me telling me to go faster....i usally go like 90 cuz i dont wanna scare her...i got her up to like 127 though few weeks back and she loved it
i myself have topped my bike out at 148...but i resproketed it in the front for quick er acceleration and free way wheelies so now it tops out at like 142 but gets their quicker
one of the only reasons she doesnt ride everywhere with me is because she thinks the helmet messes up her hair/makeup...ill post a pic of us riding or somthin but if i dont have time theres a few pics of us on the front page of this thread
Yea, we wear half helmets so it doesn't mess up her hair that bad. Damn 140+ miles an hour...Your bike doesn't start to shake at all? I've only been up to 100 on my bike, any faster is to much wind for me. I couldn't hear that good for a couple of hours after that and my ears hurt. I guess you have a full face though.
yea full face i wear....yea most bikes up above 120's 30s need a steering dampner so they dont over correct a speed wobble and low side it(crash)..yamahas have always been damn good steady machines and i could hold it above 145 so long as the road lets me without the slightest hint of a shake...
+ its a ford I am suprised the engine block didn't fall out :P. I live in New Jersey. I went to the Wildwood bike week. Sometime in spring I will be going to the South Carolina bike week in Mrytal beach(didnt spell it right).
you guys are very crazy. i wouldnt risk myself for a little thrill. imagine your going that fast and somone accidentally doesnt see you and bumps you. bikes are very responsive and youre more likely to fly. silver you would be a big loss.
