I want one. And Jason at AT THE RISERS makes the coolest ones.

The reason I love Harley's is also the reason I hate them. I love the feel of how mean, tough and powerful they feel. They're loud, and they vibrate. If you've ever ridden a Harley, more than likely, you fall in love with them. And despite everything you hear about them (you know, always falling apart and stuff) you want one. They just feel cool. It's that big twin vibration feel. And that sound, i'm not even gonna start on the sound. I'll just say two words... BAD ASS. Well, unfortunately, as you might know, that all has consequences. It rattles EVERYTHING loose. After a while, you figure out which bolts come out the fastest. And for me, I have a little checklist I usually go through before big rides, just to make sure nothing is going to fall off down the road. Well, today i've added tail light lens fasteners to my list. Funny now, that just about covers every bolt on the bike... PERFECT! Nothing else should be falling off. Oh, if anyone has a spare lens laying around, let me know. Thanks!

UPDATE: Found a new taillight. An LED one! Thanks Seth!

720 is up and running! Big thanks to Cody for taking the time to research and diagnosing the problem. It'll probably be on ebay in a couple months to help pay for the bills we have from not working.

Those 'emergency' banners I printed last weekend that put my bike projects on hold were for the Take Back Utah rally. I'm not really a political guy, but I fully support this rally. I was happy to stop everything to help out. If you hate watching the government take over our public lands, you really should go to this. Anyone and everyone matters.

The BRP lost some serious weight this weekend. I'm not even sure if I can still call her the BRP. I'm guessing there's gotta be atleast 20-30 pounds in that box. So here's what I did: New bars, shaved/lowered risers, new brake line, new baxter grips, took out some wiring along with signals, speedo, tach, horn, mirrors, hand controls, warning lights and indicators, new throttle assembly, new starter button, new on/off switch, and a new hi/lo beam switch. Did some serious cleaning and polishing too. Looks good for now, so I probably won't be doing much until winter at least.

Finally found some free time to change out my bars. It's funny how you always think a project can be so quick and easy. It never is. I ended up having to take my air cleaner, carb and gas tank off to get one of my throttle cables out, seeing as how my new throttle assembly is a single cable. I also got rid of my switch housings on the bars so I had to cut up an electrical plate to fit my switches on the cover. The wiring was a breeze however. I've never seen Harley wiring so clean and nice. I gotta thank the guy who assembled it at the factory. The guy who did my sportster must've been smoking crack at the time. It was a mess, to say the least. I ended up getting caught up printing some emergency banners for one of the state representatives, so I had to put everything on hold, until tonight. More pics of the finished look soon.

Back from my trip to Colorado. Had a great time with the fam. Here's a few pics my bro took of the trip.

I'm torn I won't make this. Heading to Colorado to see my fam. If it were anything else, I'd skip out. Seriously though, this will be awesome, don't be gay like me and miss it. There's also a ride out to the flats the next morning.



This was the biggest turn out so far. I would say more than half of the guys that showed it was their first time. I think I've met more solid guys at Moto Mondays than I've met since moving to Utah over 10 years ago. Awesome bikes, good times, and some great rides. Big thanks to the guys that are keeping this alive. A huge reason that makes living in the 801 that much cooler. Oh, btw, I poached that pan pic from Brandon, cause my pic of it came out blurry. Thanks man!
