I write stuff. A lot of it is about cars and motorcycles.

No Need to Rename the Blog

I just got back from the Harley dealership, after ordering a set of LeatherPros bags and trunk, a tachometer, auxiliary running light kit, Stage I Air Cleaner, Screamin’ Eagle performance slip-ons, and an EFI remap.

I’m keeping he bike, obviously. Financially, it makes better sense just to keep the bike, and pay her off at the low monthly payment I have now. And if I’m gonna keep her, then I’m gonna fix her up the way I want her.

I also got to thinking that, back when I was a kid, a 1200cc bike was a monster. A bigger touring bike would be more comfortable for 2-up riding, but, really, I’m not gonna do a whole lot of that. If I do, it’ll be weekend trips, not long cross-country deals. So why burden myself with an extra payment that I simply don’t need?

I’ve already got a great bike, and there’s no reason at all not to be satisfied with her for a few years. So, I’m gonna pay the Harley Tax and do just that.
