    I went in to my local Auto Zone to pick up some spare spark plugs. The guy at the register was having trouble finding them so I was chatting with the manager. He asked what the plugs were for, I told him it was for my Fatboy, he lit up and told me he has a Nightrain. He then proceeded to tell me he has a couple buddies who are HD mechanics (although they are three hours away from me) and he'd be happy to put me in touch with them if I ever needed any tech advice.

    Funny how owning a Harley suddenly strikes a common chord and you instantly have a new friend... or at least ally.

    Man you are not kidding. I have owned my Harley for not even a year now and I have met so many different people that it is just crazy. I like the kinship that one harley owner has with the other. By this I mean if you are on the side of the road, broke down, a Harley drives by, chances are they will stop, not so true for a metric bike. Has anyone else noticed this?

    With you on this one!

    When I got my first HD, sportster, lost my shifter peg on the way back from a ride, pulled over when I realized it was gone, it couldn't have been more than ten minutes when a fellow rider pulled over and asked if he could help, I will never forget this and will always do the same.

    It sure was a pain getting the bike to shift without the peg!!

    years ago a dude broke down [in his car]. I had my sporty parked out front where I worked at the time and he said I decided to come here for help because I saw your scoot. I let him use the phone.
