first off, haven't been able to read anything but the technical stuff so far, but i just spent the $15 bucks to join this site... probably the best $15 i will ever spend on my bike, my hats off and thanks to whoever put this site together, just wish i had found it sooner.........
anyway, me... been riding since i was a kid, started with the mini bike and a briggs and straten, to yamahas, suzukis, hondas, a sportster way back, then a softail, then a glide, then another glide...
recently sold the softail, lost one glide in the flood waters of katrina, and now i am putting an 06 glide together..
well, i cant see anybody really reading this, so if you really wanna know something just ask... fair enough?

Welcome to the board. Sorry to hear about losing the 'glide to Katrina. Did the insurance cover it?

thanks for the welcome..

yes the insurance, state farm, did cover the bike... other than the $500 deductible, they paid for every dollar i spent on the bike, including, tax, title and license... well everything i could show a receipt for, shocked?? i still am!!! i didnt ask any questions, i took the check! and my next door neighbor bought the bike back for $8000.00 cleaned it up, changed the fluids a couple of times an has put about 3500 miles on it! i was going to buy it back myself, but state farm informed me that i would not be able to insure the bike for more than the salvage value, and then theres the resale, and i was about to spend a few more thousand on accersories and motor work, i just hated to have 20k in a bike with a salvage title. i have gone back and forth about a thousand times thinking i did the right thing letting it go, or wether i should have kept it, but hey, i got the new bike, its paid for, and its done! so now i am building the 06 my way, wish i had found this site earlier, would have done some things different, but atleast in the future i will make more informed choices.. thanks again for all the info you guys give up, hope you get some of my $15--- you laughing?
