Retired. Started riding in'62, a BSA Rocket. A Kawasaki LTD later. First HD in '92, a Springer, then a '93 Electraglide Classic that I had for 17 years. Sold it in 2010 thinking I was done riding. That lasted about 3 years. Bought a super clean '98 FXSTC in 2013. A great looking bike, not so hot a ride. Maybe had something to do with me being 73! Traded this year for an '07 FLHTCU. Just the ticket, except for one thing, lots of catching up to do, many changes since the '93. FI? Steep learning curve for an old guy who swapped a gravity feed carb for an ECM, O2 sensors, fuel injectors, electric fuel pump, fuel press reg, IAC, and who knows what else! Other surprises along the way too. Went to check primary chain adj., surprise! Check the air in front shocks, surprise! Pulled rear wheel due to a flat, rear pulley fell off, it's been modified to IDS. Not a standard item til '08 I've been told. No mention in my Parts or MM. But it's been fun!

Are you guys speaking Spanish? I learned what a pasty was on my trip around the lake, but other than that I got nothing.

Is it a Michigan cult or something?

We are talking about the PASTY, the Yooper delicacy. This is not to be confused with the PASTIE.

Many people believe the are one and the same. They are not.

This may help:
