OK here it is, the third V-Twin Forums Ride of the Month event for 2017.

In keeping with the previously voted on format, this month is an open event. Any V-Twin scooter can be entered. Long as you own it, it plays.

As we get close to spring, lots of folks have already been out riding scooters, even in the unseasonably warm tundra to the north. So shine em up a little, take a few photos and get em entered. You never know, your scooter could be the next V-Twin Forums Ride of the Month.

As always, please remember to format those entries properly.

You can use these as inspiration.

Well ...I'll throw my helmet in the ring.
Year:2005
Model:FXDLI
Eng size:88ci Twin Cam W/Big Sucker AC and Power Commander V
Transmission:5 sp
Pipes:Rinehart Slip-on's
Seat:Mustang Vintage Wide Solo w/ removable backrest
Bags: Boss Bags
HD Quick Release Windshield
Wheels:Stock
And the story goes something like this: Back in the summer of 2005, after not riding for about 30 years, I called my wife one afternoon from work. I asked her if she could get off from work early. She wanted to know what was going on. So I said, "Well, I was thinking about stopping by the Harley dealership." We had been talking about bikes and how both she and I used to ride many years ago. So she said, "Why do I have to leave work early? We can go by tomorrow( Saturday) to look at bikes." I answered, Well you had better be there at 4 o'clock." And then I just hung up the phone.
Well she was there by 4 o'clock and as the say the rest is history. I asked her which one she liked and she said " I love that Pearl White Sportster over there." I said," Ok, that is a nice looking one." We walked around a little and she asked me which one I liked. Blue being my favorite color I walked over to the Low Rider and said, "Well this one sure is nice." Then she said, "Wouldn't it be nice to have our own bikes and go riding on the weekends." I answered, " Yep, sure would." I motioned to one of the salesmen and said as I pulled out my check book, "We will take this blue one and the Sporty over there." For the first time my wife was speechless.
The next day we picked up both her Sporty XL1200 Custom and my Low Rider.

If you were in the cult, we'd send the addresses for the checks.

It's been a couple of years since I played ... I was going to wait until summer and get some new pics with a hottie on it. Might still do that and post them anyway.

1983 FXRT, not stock but built to ride while retaining a mostly stock appearance.

Year: 1983
Model: FXRT (first year and only year Shovelhead)
Eng size: 1340 (Bone stock)
Transmission: 5sp (Stock)
Pipes: Stock (hens tooth to find)
Seat: Stock HD from a 1994 FXLR (nicer than the original)
Wheels: Chrome 13 spoke late model HD (Matching rear in the works, hard to do with the stock enclosed chain drive!!)
Accessories: Daymaker head light, GPS, FXRP Foot boards, Tour pack (not on it currently), K&N Air Filter, Even though the AC is the stock "Ham Can", I would call it an accessory because so many were removed and trashed.

Bought it over 10 years ago and had plans to do some upgrades for reliability but its been too reliable the way it is so I never did them. One plan thought is to machine the matching chrome 13 spoke rear wheel to work with the stock enclosed chain drive. That should be done this year.

Thank you very much for the compliment on my bike (seriously). However if more people would join I would be happy to bow out. I was hoping that maybe later in the year we could do an All FXR month.



I think ya should...employees of the company should not be allowed to enter or win.
Not an employee, just an enthusiast.

If Springer wins, I'm sure he'll donate the humongous winnings to a worthy cause.

Maybe FXR parts?
