  • 1st drop for the 2006

    So im warming it up at the end of the driveway and loping of engine made the bike roll forward onto the apron right off the side stand , I almost caught it , i got my left hand on the grip just a tad late, engine guard saved it from any damage

        This is why you park facing uphill. Wind got under my cover and over time bike moved forward on the slightest grade until it fell off the kickstand, crashbar saved it also.

          I will not apologize for being white, being straight or for loving this country.

            I have been so lucky with this bike. Not so much as a tip over. H-D's are great for doing that, sometimes I think they purposely designed their shitty kickstand just to sell more parts.

              It really wasn't much of a grade, but once it got moving all that weight kept it going it was like it happened in slow motion, I'll keep the front tire before little ledge of the sidewalk next time, I'm glad i wasn't sitting sidesaddle relaxing like i do sometimes, that would have totally sucked

                That was the point of my comment, it doesn't take much grade, wheels roll.

              another reason to turn the idle up to 950 rpm.

                When warming with the choke on its idling a lot higher than 950 rpm
