    Just kiddin'. But I have not owned one since 1984. This 1979 Yamaha XS11SF is the last one I owned. I don't have any decent pics of the two Police bikes I was issued, a 1978 Honda Gold Wing and a 1981 Kawasaki KZ1100.

    The 72 is a meeeeeaaaaan looking sporty for sure.

    Your dads(year?) looks vaguely familiar... :thinking:

    Haha everyone should be so lucky to have at least one just like him............that's about as close to riding one as he's ever gotten. I've told him several times I'd let him ride on the back down the road so he could say he'd done it at least once.

    His must be '07+, because I think that's the year they went to fuel injection?  I just remember being mad because they changed it the year after mine.  Of course carbs have their benefits....


    Riding the Fatboy to my grandparents in White Oak tomorrow for Easter, so I cleaned it up and realized the sissybar was rattling.....in order to work on it you have to remove the seat, luggage rack, license plate and lean the sissybar forward....takes about 10 different tools/sockets to do.....FML!

    [​IMG]

    Every time I take all of that off I just say to God:
    "Dear Lord, as soon as you're done laughing at me, I could really use your help!"

    I'm not mechanically inclined, but I can normally do simple stuff like that no problem.....I'm enjoying a cold one now to celebrate my victory!


    While I was out there, I figured a few shots of the garage/reloading room/man cave were in order!

    More of my baby:

    Yeah you are correct it's an 07 model. That bike is his pride and joy lol. I love going out on it with him in the summer.

    Haha if he hasn't done it yet tell him to look at a progressive front and rear suspension. Makes the bike much more pleasant to ride for longer periods of time.

    A buddy of mine is a salesman at the Jackson dealer so he called me when the two new models came out, which I actually told him about before he even knew. I'll post a couple pictures of them for you since you like the 72 so much.

    Yeah he has that, came with it when he bought it :)

    The 72 is my favorite, tried it at the Edinburgh bike show (pics above) it is a perfect "fit" so to speak, for me :lol4: I am 5´4 and my inside leg is very short...I´m a wee lassie.

    The 883 low is nice too.

    The 883L is probably what I'll be starting my fiancé out on when she decides she's ready for her own. She's been content riding with me, but a friend of mine just bought his wife a older sportster to learn on so now Andrea is a bit envious......she's about to get a house though so I really don't want to hear it for a while ha!


    Here's the 72 in flat black:

    I loved the jeweling

    And here's the Softtail Slim(excuse the bad angles, it's good side was against a column in the shop):

    The bars are my favorite feature!
    [​IMG]

    The Slim doesn't really appeal to me because I'm over the blacked out craze Harley is still running with....I like the bars, and I like the resemblance to the fatboy, but honestly it's not different enough to start a new model over.

    Here is what I want!!

    Talk about hurting your eyes!  This stuff pops in the daylight!
    [​IMG]
    That bike was actually intended to be a demo bike for the shop owner, but they put it on the floor and it sold before he got a chance to ride it.

    And this is the one that got away....I'll kick myself everyday for the rest of my life for being dumb enough to sell it!

    Very nice, I actually like the black too though I reckon purple flake would be nice :p

    I think your fiancée will love the 883 low.

    My uncle has the exact same ninja. Very cool but VERY fast!

    Yeah I did way too much stupid stuff on it. I had to sell it before I hurt myself, hurt it or waited too long and it wouldn't be worth as much......the plan was to use the cash as a down payment on a new truck, but I thought it would be easier to find a decent job than it wound up being, so a year later I'm still driving around in my '04 ranger.

    Top speed on the ninja was supposedly 185mph.....I never got that brave! Wouldn't have done it with my big butt on it anyway
