I got the Ultra Glide 99% buttoned up. Let me tell you it was a great feeling hear her fire off first shot!
For those that don't know, it got a full updated cam chest & new lifters(thanks Dave63), new oil pump(shiz they are expensive), beasly oil spring, adjustable pushrods, and a basic fluid change and tune up.
Big shout out to Dave63 for parts and support. He was always just a phone call away. Thanks Dave!
Guys, Link feels good today.
Well got off work and needed to pick up some parts from the local dealer so thought 57F, might as well go for a ride. Tooled over there grabbed my parts and figgered WTF, I'm near a buddy I'll go see if he wants to ride with me.
As I pull down his street notice a Sheriff, a Highway patrol car sitting in front of his house. As I get closer I also see there is a Dept of Conservation truck in his drive.
Seems as he was coming home from work he hit a 13 point on his 900 Vulcan. Didn't hurt the bike and didn't hurt him however, he's the type that would eat venison 356 days of the year if he could. So he pulls out his knife and goes over to the deer which is still laying in the ditch.
Deer gets up he jumps on it's back, grabs it's antlers with one hand, pulls it's head back and cuts it's throat in this old lady's front yard. While this is going on the woman runs out and screams for him to "leave that deer alone or I'm calling the cops". He says "go ahead" and she does.
He calls his wife, she brings the truck and they haul the deer off.
He called it in when he got home and I got there evidently right after everyone else and they were still in the process of trying to figure out if the deer had actually been injured or if my buddy was simply a Psychopath.
I'm sure it didn't help when I told the Game warden and the cops that I'd known him for 40 plus years and he was no crazier now than he ever was.
Anyway he kept the deer and after giving him a permit for it, they went their merry way.
Only about 42 miles total for the ride but it was to say the least an interesting one.
I can't say I wouldn't try to knife it, but that is so illegal in NY....I can't even begin...
