the first photo I see you have fitted a cooling fan to blow cool air at you whilst your riding ideal position between tank and seat.
I like the two old style weighing scales you have on show on top of your cabinets , is there some history you own them ? .

it was raining till noon today. i thought we had round table but that didn't work out so i was working in shop when sun came out a little after noon. i had checked earlier and no one wanted to ride, i think they thought it was going to rain all day. anyway a little over a week and my guys are going to be here for eureka springs reunion. i haven't ridden fury since the new pump came in for flash about 3 months i think. when that pump showed up i put it in w lifters and new cam brg and have been ridding it ever since. so fury needs some excersise. bad rear tire and all it's going to es. today i went to give it a good preflight. aired up tires, and rear suspension wiped off some bugs. i thought the battery was three years old come august so i was going to replace it. i got in there and it will be two years old come august. cool, so i load tested it, it was good, i'm real big on super shiney before the trip, now days i do the deep clean after the trip. ridding through even a little rain messes em up pretty good. i did wash the little nwws though. i spent a lot of time last winter on cosmetics. the cone incident wrecked front fender and the stock trailer knocking it over and dragging it messed it up more plus 91,000 miles of use had it pretty messed up. looking ok now so didn't need much clean up. i transfered my trip stuff, booster pac, tire repair kit, tool kit, 12v tire pump, rain gear, and some mmo and chemicals i carry on the road from flash over to fury. i checked coolant level and coolant pump operation. it's good to go. i rearranged the garage part of shop so we can get my guys, brian, mack, and travis' bikes in when its time to bed em down wed nite. it's supposed to be nice tomorrow. danny and i are flying out for lunch and will make a day of it at airport after i get back from tulsa. taking wife to tulsa to catch a plane to fargo. and you guessed it rain sunday through tuesday, maybe ok wednesday, then rain thursday and friday. this wx is just crazy! as long as it doesn.t do that june 6-9 i guess we will take it. y'all have a great holiday weekend! my floors do not look like rick's!

There are times, especially when the weather is feeling like a early spring time or, late fall, ride in Utah. It really feels like my Dad is once again enjoying a easy ride, right there along with me. We rode every Sunday that the snowballs would allow. His last bike was a 1976 "Liberator" kinda purple(ish) colored with a big Gold Eagle across the front fairing. And that giant white couch seat. He truly loved those Electra Glides!sorry you lost yours so soon et. i was very lucky to have mine for a very long time. i still talk to him daily.
