Thanks. That is my real life. Mrs Klickitat and I live for summers on the bike in the Rockies

#1 is the Teitons obviously
#2 is Flathead Lake looking toward Glacier NP
#3 The aped out Heritage parked in front of the Blue Bird. Oldest (supposedly) tavern in Washington in down town Bickleton. They do have a 200 year old pool table... but only BMC.
We were at flathead lake last August. Stayed at polson, on our way to the coast. Rode the harley 5200 miles from nebr to oregon and back. Took us 3weeks. If you want to follow along I posted on morebeer forum in the off topic , look under 'the first leg of my journey'

Aha! Found a pic of my old marauder... Harley drag bars and posts, drilled out and modified for free by a couple bikers after I bent the oem ones. Also custom seat, 2-stage kit, pipes, jets all done and tuned by moi... Seat height to ground is 22" on that bike.

Parket Motorcycle Syndrome - Good one!

My bike is sitting in storage down at my brewery waiting for the first warm day to ride it home. Unfortunately I have a hard time finding time to ride it even on the nicest days. Always seems like I need a truck to haul something somewhere. Maybe I should park the truck at the brewery and ride the bike!

My first Harley was a Suzuki Marauder. People were always telling me how they loved my Harley...

I need to put a new battery in my Katana and turn it over; its been in the garage covered for quite a while and I've been thinking about getting it running again. ;D

The landscape in those pics are pretty awesome.

That photo is in Custer State Park. Maybe 2005. I. Ant remember for sure. I don't know if you can see clearly but there is a small herd of buffalo crossing in the background.

Don't feel bad about a Sporty. I have a 92 Suzuki GS500E that my uncle calls a "Hon-derrr". I pretend it is a term of endearment. Never mind that I rebuilt the engine and tranny and repainted the entire bike... still ain't good enough! ::)

I definitely don't feel bad about it but the abuse gets ingrained. A couple friends traded up over the years and when they'd give me the business I'd tell them to keep making their payments. The sporty has been free and clear since the day I brought it home.  Of course it needs a new battery and has a small leak from the trans but it's also 17 years old. Definitely should go in for an overhaul.

Had to bring this up again, I REALLY have pms now. I traded off my 2 Harley's  and am waiting for a new one to ship from the factory. I ordered a 2014 ultra classic, candy orange. Man these new bikes are cool. And it was 70 yesterday! Today it is a blizzard.

OK, I'll jump in.  Here's mine:



OK kidding.  But I saw this bike on one of the first days of snow melt.  The other side sports a car battery in an ammo box wired to the bike.

Here's my real bike:

That rat bike looks like it was born out of a long meth-fueled winter. ???

Nice Harley though. 1200cc Sportster?

Ok. So a superglide is a stretched sportster and the rake is different. I  not as familiar with HD as jap-bikes.

Kind of. Bigger frame, bigger engine, seperate transmision where the sporty is engine and tranny in one piece. Several other differences. Sportys are cool though. Fun to play ariund on.
