Today while on a cruise on my 2008 Softail Custom I was on a secondary country road just loving the entire scene. The motor was humming sweet tunes and the scenery was just beautiful our weather here in Upstate New York has been hot (90's) so the moving air was a welcome addition. Without warning, here is chuck 10 feet in front of me making a woodchuck dash for the centerline. No time to do anything but Tighten up and hope that front wheel can take it. Knees pressed against the tank, handle bars pulled back and gripped tight. BAM...chuck left the stage. The bike took the jolt as both wheels took chuck. I slowed and stopped where I could get off and look the bike over for any damage. Tires were good, no visible damage to anything underneath except...the little critter took my gremlin bell. Now a question, My wife gave it to me "unannounced", nice touch and according to the legend, it doubled the effect. ( must have ) after today's little event. Do I ask her to get me another one, or just get it myself ?
