    I drove Submarines while serving in the Navy for 20+ years. Now drive a 2009 fatboy with a stage 1 kit. Not sure if this stage one thing is a poisitive or - ? Average about 5K miles a year but not going more than 50 miles from home.
    Trying to plan a trip this summer to the mountains. need some friends to ride with.
    I learned a lot from a navy career, but sometimes i go a little overboard.
    Have been trained to push (PM) preventive maint. Went online and asked the question what can go wrong with my harley, WOW! Now I'm a nervos wreck.
    need to take a course on harley.

    All worries aside I like the bike. The sound, the torque, the looks, the attention, the tires, the blue color, the personality. Have considered an S&S
    engine replacement? Concerned about the factory engine blowing out from under me at max thrill runs and would like 150 HP and torque? need to blow away a Triumph with 146HP? Hope to hear from a lot of riders and make a few friends. regards
