    The Readhead and I are finally home after our trip. About 100 miles from Mn, the 1995 Ultra I was riding shut off in stop and go traffic, my left leg felt hot as I put the kick stand down I saw the starter cable had shorted on the exhaust pipe and was on fire, I got the seat off and rerouted the burned cable enough to make it back to my parents house where I had spare cables. It was fixed in about 5 minutes better than new IMO We had a great time I ended up riding 2100 miles that trip, The Redhead did 550 miles in Sturgis and never once complained All in all a Good Trip:s But it is good to be back home with my puter and my friends here at H D TALKING, Capital Jack and The Redhead

    Yes welcome back Jack, glad you two had a good (and safe) time. But where are the PICS ? That starter cable didn't burn the camera did it ?

    So the story may be that the arcing from the battery cable created an electro magnetic pulse that wiped the memory card in the camera

    Jack, glad you and the better half had a good time and made it home ok, it's the little things that happen on the road that make you appreciate the ride all the more.
    As others have said, where are the pix.
