    Whatcha got against nipple rings, HK? Uh, no, you can relax, brother, no nipple rings. They don't do much for me and besides I'm way to much of a wuss for that kind of pain..

    I'm 67 (& 1/2 ) years old, still have "most" of my hair,still slim, got rid of my goatee & (4) earrings at 67 because my wife says I'm too old to be cool. But I'm keeping my tats.

    Can I play? 62 years old (don't wear the earrings [4] because of the job, shaved my dome until 1/1/10 [SHE's making me grow it back!! Goatee stays! ), '05 FLSTC Heritage I call "The Beast" - 96", 203 cams, race tuner, dyno'd, Thunderheader pipes, and my favorite thing is setting off car alarms as I roll by 'em. Makes me chuckle. Got the headlight (high beam all the time), passing lamps AND fog lamps that I run permanently...I look like the Starship Enterprise coming down the road...so if they can't see me, they damn-sure gonna hear me.

    How 'bout we post some pictures of us with our rides, like Ringo did?

    +1. Ok, Ektarr, I'll have to "man up" and put my mug on here. Soon as I figure out how to do it.

    Damn guys, we need to go for a ride. Let's all meet Ringo in AZ. There's about 3 more weeks of riding season left there

    "Oh yea, 20 ft is a pretty big circle in my book. "

    Have you measured it lately? If you have a video of you turning in between two parking spaces, please post it here. I'd like to see it and applaud you. I'm not saying you can't do it, I just want to see it done on a Sportster. A 20 ft circle is pretty small for a turning radius on a bike with as much rake as a Sportster, even if the Sporty is shorter than an Ultra. Two parking spaces are about 18 ft wide. Just do a video with you going into the right space, U-turning, and coming out inside the left space. Even on a Sporty, that ain't easy.

    On the power issue, Harleys aren't bought for power. They are ridden for comfort and nostalgia. If you want speed, get a Honda ST1300. I always get a kick out of folks that brag about how fast their Harley goes. Any squid on even a 600 sport bike will leave a Harley in the dust, making a "Harley" look like a "Hardley". LOL!

    The rake on a Sportster is the shortest of all rakes of all Harley"s, like I said, pretty big circle in my book. The Sportster IS bought for power, not comfort, like I said. Other bikes don't matter to me, just Harley's. That said, I can make YOUR Harley look like a "Hardley" any day of the week and twice on Sunday. LOL!

    A handful of heavy marbles does the same as the ball bearings and they shatter on impact thus destroying the culprit. Or so I've been told. Walmart sells some in a handy little bag that seems to fit right in a vest pocket. I carry them in case I ever get a chance to play marble with the guys.
