    Brian,

    You are having a share of the BLUES... I won't complain about the cool temp. and the wind blowing today... You'd call me a winer.

    Hang in there Fin,

    I'll send you some of MY cooler weather (66*):small3d009:... Man, I'll need to get out my Wa. state Long Johns IF this keeps up...

    My 09 FLHR still has the Original battery so It Might be My turn next:newsmile047:

    The 06 sporty has the trickle on it and the King is ridden more.

    Hope you get good temps for Sunday... Ours in Az. is going UP big-time Sunday.

    I won't tell you how much WARMER,,,,, OUCH,:small3d023: I Might get an EDIT:rofl

    take care friend, and ride safe..

    signed....BUBBIE

    Sleet and snow for the weekend so no biking for me
    Wife somehow managed to get her bike out of the back shed yesterday polished it and went out on it for a while and kept calling me to tell me how good it was
    Then she left it out so that i could put it away for her when i got home from work
    Sometimes she does deliberately annoy me but i will get her back one day

    Fin sorry for the glitch that kept you homebound. Careful of those paybacks, they can come back to bite you. Don't ask me how I know!

    As it was such a pleasant day for the time of year i had to enjoy being outside and next to riding being out on the hill with dog is what i enjoy most he did sleep well on Sunday evening
    Although he wasn't happy that i was in the shed for an hour and a half last night spending a lot of time feeding that one wire from the new vr through to its impossible to get to with normal hands place
