Re: Leading link Forks

Where as the bike according to measuring lean out against rear wheel has 1°. I'll check where car mounts and adjustments for any tales of loosesness. Arrn't thos...

Re: Leading link Forks

I’ve experienced similar affects after heavy off roading. What I’ve had to do was lift the front end off the ground, then Bang the handlebars left & right a few times. That has always fixed it. It’s only happened twice in my many years and after talking to dealers I respect, they never heard of tha...

Negative Ghost Rider... the pattern is different...(that’s for Chad... I can feel him cringing from here... ...

The size of the actual Harley riders perhaps equalized the svelteness (HaHa) of the Urals.
And it doesn't look like a fast riding group anyway. Looks like a great time.

Re: Brake lights stay on all the time

I got tired of squinting at the schematic on my phone and throwing away greasy copies of it I'd printed up that got crumpled and torn, so I took a copy on a zip drive down to an office supply store.

Leading link Forks

A couple days ago I got trapped and had to jump/pop over a high cement curb. appx 10". I hit it at a 75° angle at walking speed, with slight acceleration, just enough to bounce it and the rear over.

Little update on my sisters’ crash recovery. She made it through surgery and has added five titanium screws to herself. Beats me by two.....
Thanks for the update. Sounds like good health, bones, longevity and accident prone runs in the genes. I'm 3 of 4.
Glad she's gonna be ok.

Only those who have dealt with a CA DMV field office and or stood there in line at one can fully appreciate what Mr. Coyote has shared. Folks, it's no laughing or even casual matter. Can I get an Amen ! :bow:
