We’re getting the same break in 2022 as in this year, as of right now no price increase.
We’re not forgetting our fav texans either.
Word has it that Les and Carla, newly retired, may be joining us along with our texans, Alan and Leslie. We just need our CA members, IOWA members, VA members, etc, to reserve their rooms and join us.
Just remember that if our fav Canadians can make it, we can make it!

More importantly what have you DONE!
I hope it is already put back together?
Did something happen that you have it so stripped down?
That was a shocker to see….

It’s a Harley. Maybe he was trying to find that vibrating rattle. Oh wait, I’ve got one of those rattles. :pullinghair:

It’s back together, Rich. The second picture shows the “final product”. I changed the handlebars which required to extend hydraulic lines, that’s why I had to remove heat shields and lose exhaust to get an access to the slave cylinder.

Also, changed front fork cartridges to legend suspension, much improvement from stock. I already had rear shocks upgraded, but front of course required a “bit more” work.

Great to see you are mending well. Hopefully the worst is behind you. The Indian sounds like a great way to go. Definitely need to post pictures when you get it. I too am fixing to retire in a few months. Don't know if you saw this:

Nothing fancy, but Carla and I are getting out of Houston and will all be paid for. Check the threads out if you get bored.

Glad to hear you’re good, John. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the roadmaster, Polaris makes solid bikes. I was really curious to try out a Challenger, but my local dealer can’t get one for the test ride, they sell before hitting the showroom

Great looking bike. If/when my SVTC forces me to change rides the Roadmaster is #1 on my short list right now. I'll have to prep myself for sticker shock if it happens....LOL. Looking forward to hearing of your experiences with the new bike. Congrats.
