    Me and dad rode around 75 miles today and almost froze!! It was 50 degrees, and running 70 mph it felt like 30's. we had a great time, my bike run like a new one, he's 85 fxstc ran great until the carb started acting up at the end of the trip, he's running a non cv KEIHIN. it runs way to rich, he's getting a new cv conversion carb from killer m/c products. hopefully it'll fix it. I really enjoyed riding with my dad, i'm about ready to upgrade from the 883 to a 1450.

    funny, he loves he's 85 softail, i like it only because it's been in family for like 17 years,
    he's second owner, its 1 year away from antique tag.
    i'll get some good pictures of it next week to post in softail area,
    he's the reason i bought mine in the first place, we go to rallies together, can food runs, and toys for tots this coming weekend!!!, meridian,ms if any want to ride for a cause.

    Wasn't it great? I rode some in the morning, was committed to wrapping presents at the dealer for our HOG chapter in the early aftenoon. Took the long way home and had some of the best riding of the fall. Love that TN fall weather.
