took my screaming eagle 96 inch 05 Super Glide to town today and bought a 09 Road King. Need more comfort. Seems sweet so far, 40 miles to the dealer each way, in rain hail and snow, What Fun!!! My new bike is Filthy Gross!!! Can't get the Ole Lady to wash it in the snow, wimp! LOL

Sweet bike Carl and major congrats. Your pick-up tale reminds when I bought a Wide Glide on a cold, wet snowy day. Forgot to bring the riding gloves. 40 miles to home like you. At about mile 20 my hands were blocks of ice so I went into the only store along the way... a c-store, and found the only thing I could buy to help... yellow playtex dishwashing gloves! "Style" is my middle name. Didn't do much for the cold but at least the hands were dry. :)

me too Ultra Geezer

and to think I thought I was the only one. I bought a new 09 Ultra last week, headed home once hit hail, turned around waited awhile and then hit rain the rest of the way home. Shop spent a couple hours shining it up and I got it dirty in a hurry. Man 50mph is dang slow in a rain storm for 30+ miles. Spent most of Saturday re-cleaning.

Around here we consider it good luck for it to be raining on the day of delivery. Welcome.

I just clicked over the 2k mark on my Classic. Bike is filthy from the last ride (I posted about that in another thread). With over 500 miles, you ought to be done with the break-in period.

Before I really hammer I'll wait and do the 1000 mile service. Weather is getting better, gonna be a short fun summer.
