    Wait, so you didn’t just go to one establishment and accept whatever their offer was? You shopped around? That’s so weird, I didn’t know people did that.

    Re: Road Glide vs. Street Glide

    Now it's officially official. The beast is snug in the garage. I'll be getting around to ordering stuff for it these next couple weeks. Can't wait to ride this mofo!

    FINALLY got the call from "the other place" a few days ago. He actually called to let me know the 2014 I was looking at was sold. *BUT* he still had the 2017 I was looking at and wanted to know if I wanted to leave a deposit on it so that one didn't "slip away too". I laughed and told him I just took delivery on a 2017 with 20,000+ LESS miles for about the same price and let him know they didn't play hokus pokus with the trade. Also reminded him the 2014 would be in my garage if they just put a rear tire on it. He didn't sound as amused as I was.

    Not in Barnstead anyway. The trails are shit, the ice is shit, any snow related activity in my area is shit. Well, except for bonfires and drinking. That's still working pretty well in these parts.

    So apparently, collecting Harley shop t-shirts are a thing. A few local peeps are travelling this Feb vacation and want to pick me up dealership t-shirts from shops far away. Who knew?

    Poker chips? News to me. Then again, so is the t-shirt thing.

    We'll go to Dunkin' Donuts, then go from bar to bar to bar - each one about 1/8 mile from the previous?

    I thought we have to whack someone before we get patches? Man, I got it all wrong!

    I think I have one Harley shirt. I do know a guy that has a shitload but has owned 0 bikes. The Harley marketing machine is insane. I've seen poker chips, pins, patches. I love it and hate it at the same time. If you really want to get in on it I can swing by the couple of shops near me. I still owe you the rubber pieces for the frame. Maybe this weekend I'll get them sent

    The more things change the more things stay the same. This reminds me of a group ride we participated in up to RT302/N. Conway/RT153S area on the sporty bikes a long while ago. Go to this gas station to meet a guy, drive 5 miles to another gas station to meet another guy.....(repeat numerous times)....... pull over on the side of RT93N because one of the riders decided to kick a piece of metal on the highway and hurt his foot.....stop in a rest area somewhere along the way.......turn right onto RT302 and pull over on the side of the road........

    I've never made it across RT302 so fast in my life. When the group decide to stop for the umpteenth time, when we pulled onto RT302, I just shook my head, twisted my right wrist and kept going. ZX-12R and Half-Squid took quite a while to catch up to me once they realized I was done with the stops. Met up in Conway with everyone when they finally pulled through and then when we hit RT153S same thing started happening again, found a passing zone and quite slowly and politely passed the group, waved to the leaders and rode home the rest of the way without stops at a spirited pace. It was a fun ride minus all the stopping LOL. Not sure I'm cut out for the Harley lifestyle

    If you get around to sending those pieces out, great. No biggie if you forget, I haven't gotten the lift yet. Hold off on the shirts for me! LOL! Thanks though.

    I hear ya. For the most part, the guys I ride with actually travel a bit before stopping. I DID get dragged into a ride late last year though that was similar though. I knew it was a dud when I showed up and they told me we were riding up & around the big lake (I live 6 miles from Alton Bay, whoopie!). First stop, gas. Less than 10 minutes later - second stop, gas. Someone forgot they needed fuel. Then we proceeded to hit every bar on the way to and at Weirs Beach. No more than pull out, grab a few gears & park it at the next one. Yeah, that was a real hoot...
