    On the bikes... I hear ya. I keep telling people that I will keep my ultra. I have no desire to get a new one... There just isn't any reason. I know the bike and love how it treats me.
    Especially after the ass kicking that deer got from your bike and you came off it with minor injury. NO WAY would I ever sell that bike G. Talk about sentimental value, sheesh..... Sorry to hear on your friend Al

    Sorry about your friend, Al.

    As for the bikes, it's tough. I see it all the time in my business with bicycles. People come in with bikes they've had since their childhood that they just love, and won't ever ride, but they'll never get rid of them. They are a part of their identity, who they are. They have great memories wrapped up in these bikes. It's the same thing with our motorcycles. We identify certain rides, or good times with our riding buddies, with our machines. I've only been riding a little over a year, and am on my second bike. But I'm having a hard time wanting to sell that first one. It still is in the garage. I look at it every morning as I leave the house, and I think how much I love that bike!
    My Favorite Rides:
    2016 Ultra Limited
    2010 Ultra Classic
    2003 Dyna SuperGlide
    1967 Bell UH-1 Iroquois(Huey)



    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    I agree with you Al. Unless its a financial burden of owning 2 bikes and you need to sell it. Other than that , Don't get rid of it. You may regret it if you love it that much.

    Do I love my motorcycle? I don’t think I would call it love.Not like the love I feel for my wife or the young lady next door, or the girl at the office. I really like my Road Glide, I use to really like my Electra Glides(both of the EVO’s). At the time (1967) my Sportster XLCH was the best thing to happen, and the 70 Bonneville was cool also. I owned a couple early shovelheads that were fun and I restored a 1972 FLH a few years ago that I had a hard time parting with, but I don’t recall being in love with a motorcycle. If I had enough space I would own more than two motorcycles. I don’t know why, because I only ride my Road Glide while theother sits. In a “man I love that” kind of way, one could say “I love my bike”but I guess we mean, this is about the second coolest thing in our lives. ???
    Just my thoughts
