I too have been "lurking" for a year or so and finally decided to sign up. I started riding in 1971 on a Triumph 650 and by 1972 had a '57 Panhead with a straight leg rigid frame and an 18" over springer. After being beat up for 6 years, I got a '63 Pan and some shocks but the damage was done. Later, I got a '76 Shovel until 1984 when I had a bad accident and didn't ride for 10 years. Last year, got divorced and bought an '04 Dyna Wide Glide. Just took it in Monday for the 95 kit and 203 cams with SE II pipes. Not the hottest setup but something I can afford now. I have 16,000 miles on it and don't ride in the snow!

16 miles!!!? You better stop putting so many miles on that thing.... hahaha

16000 is pretty good for a couple year old bike. You have been riding that scoot. I only have 16000 on my 03 model.

I noticed you stated you were putting some performance parts on your bike. I am also doing those kind of things to mine this winter. I am still waiting on my heads I sent off to be professionally worked to get back. Once those get in, I am tearing it down to send off some other parts for boring, coating, etc. It is alot of fun not only riding these bikes but working on them. After a stressful day at work I can still come home and tinker with my bike and it takes the stress away.
