Superglides aren't that pricey... unless you want your next bike to be under the 13k range.

1996 Harley Davidson FXDS with a lot of stuff. Yes, it's fast, yes it will pull the front tire in 1-3rd. No it's not a stock evo.

I wish you a speedy a healthy recovery.
Things could have gone much worse or much better.
Heal up and research for the new replacement bike.

After reviewing the video I shot There isn't much of it that you can see. There was a big ass grease smudge on the lens that pretty much ruined everything.

I can't really teel what the heck is on there. Just didn't work out like I had hoped.

At least you are around to tell the story, that's the big thing.

Ride Safe!

Just as well. We all know that the movie is never as good as the book!

Hey Cool Pig; just saw this string today... glad to hear you're still with us even if the beast has moved on to motorcycle heaven. God has established a time for everyone to take his last breath and apparently this wasn't yours! Just curious...what were you wearing when you went down? Any specific kind of jacket? Gloves? Bahama shorts?

Hope you are OK. Totaled my Nomad in the spring of '06. In the summer bought my '06 2000 Classic LT and "his" insurance paid for it and MORE! Heal yourself and bikes can be replaced!!

I have no doubt that God put His hand on me and that my time had not come yet. Thank You Lord.

Was wearing just jeans, short sleeve shirt, boots and helmet. Wasn't trying to be fashion statement. This is Texas and most of the time too hot to wear much.
