Morning fellas

I had Yankee Bob drop by yesterday, he was in town for a wedding . I let him take the 124 for a ride and he cam back ALL smiles, mumbling something about the tire spinning at 60mph not really sure. HIs son ( 18 or so) spoke up telling me that he too had a lic, Yea I was really thinking about letting him ride it .... YEA RIGHT I smiled and said well HE!! no you cant ride it. LOL

Nice guy .

Perhaps I should also go with the Soda route since I retired from Uncle Sam's Canoe Club in the last 2 months I have probaly only drank maybe 6 beers, and to be honest I have not missed the beer. Besides I need to come over there and put my foot in a certain young mans A$$, he got dropped outta school back in August due to his granfather's death (he missed close to two weeks of school) and he has not bothered to go back. Kids these days...what you gonna do????

When I come over there we can go over there together, he now lives in Glendale so it would be a nice little ride...maybe we can go by way of Sedona or Jerome....LOL

Yes.....I was indeed all grins. That bike is one mean mfer! I have never ridden a bike with as much ass kickin' grunt as that...and honestly, I was a bit intimidated...not to mention, IT ISN'T MY BIKE!!
I twisted the grip a bit and that tire broke loose before I knew it. It has that "pull your arm out of its socket" pull.

Steve is one hell of a nice guy, and I am glad I chose to do business with him. He went above and beyond the call of duty to help me put my build together. Thats why I went to visit him personally. To thank him and shake his hand.

Many thanks Steve! That was one hell of a ride!

Wrench-

Did you finally make up your mind to come back to Michigan. I know you were leaning that way last time we talked.
He isn't coming back to Michigan. Think he is going to Prescott. AZ.

I don't have any personal experience with them. I have heard good things, but nothing I can attest to.

Good Luck,

YB

DRG,

I'm having a 95" Stage 5 engine upgrade done on my FatBoy from R&R Cycle now. As soon as I get it back from them I'll post the results. They stated that it should put out approx 115 TQ and 115 HP. The build is done, but they need to do a road test, so it may be a while considering that mother nature is getting in they way.

115/115 on a 95" build? I think that is a bit of wishful thinking, but I hope you get what you are looking for. What all parts did you use i.e. cam, heads, etc?
