    Post pics of your bikes.
    The first two pics are taken from old pics so they`er not very good, the first one is a 72 sportster that I bought wrecked and stock in the service and chopped it.
    Thext one is a 73 ShovelHead that I rode for 18 years.
    Third one is a 02 Indian Chief I bought new.
    Forth is my current bike an 01 RoadGlide that just turned over 61,000 niles.
    I`ve owned many other bikes from Honda`s , BMW`s, Dirt Bikes and scooters.

    Thanks Willy, the Indian was a great looking bike but lots of problems and that`s why I sold it.
    Traded a 97 Honda GoldWing that I converted to a trike (motor trike) , nice ride also.
    Lets see your ride.

    My mom and dad have always had Goldwings. They have had some adventures going down the mountain in Colorado in a snow/ice storm, hitting a deer and recking one of their bikes and all sorts of vacations.

    I drove one once when I was 16yrs. my dad with me. It was the scariest thing, the balancing is different then a bicycle! I like to ride, not drive and all the mechanics were too confusing to me.

    Thanks, Willy did ya notice the alternator on the sporty, top picture. That pic was taken in LA in 79, rode that bike across the country three times and wanted it dependable, the stock generators were trouble.

    Mine hasnt got quite so much horse power, (infact only one girl power), but is quite good off road - though Easy Rider would look better with your bike than mine!

    Remember the band The Monkeys, they had these bikes with skies on them and rode them down a hill. Hey hey hey we are the Monkeys !!!!!!!!
    Yep loud was good, :D but mine has quieted down as I got older. Though my plan one of these days is to sell the dresser in the last picture and get another old school chopper like the first picture. :nod:

    Skies on bikes sound fun until you need to brake!;)

    What are those choppers like to ride, it looks fairly uncomfortable!

    Very comfortable and handle better than a stock bike IMO, rigid frame ones would be a little hard on older kidneys though. :swoon:

    STOP !!!!!! who wanted to stop :yowza:

    Why are certain handle bar styles illegal?

    It varies by state, just like helmet laws some states like to tell you what`s safe for you. :(
