Are V-Twin Men Welcomed at This Party?

Hey, Doc, thought I'd stop by and check out the new digs. I might be here quite a bit if the temp in Wisconsin here drops more. Yikes, it's chilly here today. Cutting wind.

But tomorrow is the day I usually take as my day off. I think "Black Betty" needs a few romps on the slab before storage. I might even take her down to the shop for some modifications to the rear tire, wheel and swingarm.

Anyone else doing winter mods?

Here are some pics of Betty. This was right after I put on the new CVO front end and 21-inch front tire.

During that mod, I slipped in a 203 cam and pushrods, and my favorite wrench Ryan did a dyno tune to get the best performance out of an EFI engine. Yikes.

Nice Harley Chico! Sweet. It looks fast sitting still. I can hear the rumble just looking at those pics.

Doc, this is the biggest Harley engine I have owned. When I bought it, it came in 88ci. I told the guys to just pull the top end off and install the 95-inch kit. Best move I've ever made.

I was looking at the 2009 Dyna Fat CVO, it has the 110-inch kit. There is some discussion on heat from the EPA mandates. However, the mechanics tell me that if I can just get the bike broken-in, they can install a race tuner and counter-act all of the protocols that apply on the dyno tune.

Ahhh, but I'd miss Betty.

That is a great looking bike. I'd be proud to own one just like it sometime.

Nica, I'm a tad older now than when I was engaged in, ahem, sordid activities.

When I travel now, sometimes a bike requires tune-ups and repairs by hooking them to a CPU. Additionally, I don't think there's one collection station in my entire suburban town that takes used oil.

Frankly, I need and want authorized dealerships for many of the maintenance issues on bikes. Yes, I carry common sized wrenches, Betty has additional gauges for "early warning" conditions, but I'm pretty much a "sunny Sunday" rider now. I have almost 200K under my butt, I have nothing to prove.

But get this, fully 100% of the bike you see there is from Harley's own custom parts book.

With the correct numbers you could build the identical bike.

My point is that no matter what happens to Betty on the road (and yes, I broke the throttle assemble once), I can get instant and duplicate replacement of parts from sea to shining sea.

You could build Betty.
