    Finally got my plates from the dmv today! Only put 2500 miles on the bike with canceled plates off an old one.

    Put an S&S Stealth air cleaner on today. Took it out for a quick ride and noticed some increased throttle response. Bike seems to sound a bit louder as well but this is all based off butt dyno only.

    My ultra classic is pretty much stripped to where a Street Glide is. It's actually comfortable and pretty stable. I did 364 miles Sunday including up Mt. Washington with sustained 70mph winds + gusts.
    by far the hairiest ride I've every done, but the bike was stable and didn't feel too much like a sail.

    Better a Racer for a moment then a spectator your whole life!

    NH Route 153 is quickly becoming my favorite local road again. Most of it up to Effingham has decent pavement now. If I've only got a few minutes, it's a nice little blip up to the Ossippee River boat launch at the Effingham bridge. About 100 miles there & back. It can be the perfect scoot when I don't have long but need some wind. I still get all excited when I go through my crash spot. LOL!

    It's a nice ride from there up to the Conway area too. If you're looking to avoid typical tourist traffic, that's a great way to do it. If you wanna hit the Kancamagus from there, it's a short jump south through town (usually against most traffic) and you're there. Wanna keep going north and avoid as much traffic as possible? Just hop across Route 16, and you're on West Side Road.

    I forgot how fun this little local gem was.

    I haven't really checked yet, but I'm sure I'm well over 4000 miles now.

    You know, when you are at the 153/16 streetlight in Conway, our place is about 2 miles away. Just saying.. And I take 153 to 25 all the time when I'm going to or from there, sweet road even in the truck.
