'[OT]: Sob!!'

Hi all,

I don't know if anyone's interested in old Harleys at all, but I
reluctantly had to sell one that I've had for quite some time. As a
matter of fact I did my very first PIC project on her which was for an
automatic advance and worked from the standard 6 volt system.

A sad day :-(

Just having come from looking at your web page, my sincerest condolences to
you and your family on such a heart rending loss. It's terrible, mate, just
terrible. Makes me want to get mine back on the road once again. A sad day
indeed.

Try to think of it as marrying off a daughter...
It looks older than the one Dad sold in '55. I think the intention was to
keep me away from bikes.

What year is it?

My condolences.  See, that's why my bikes have been rice burners - no
emotional attachment to worry about!

Maybe the rice burners spend an awful lot of time riding into the back
of pickup trucks.

A no win argument I don't want to get into ;-)

Nice bike Tony, is that the sort of model the cops would have ridden ?
I did have a WW2 Indian for a short time but it was too dangerous to
ride around town. Much preferred the old 50's low-slung Norton, at
least you could change gear with your foot !!

Saw the release of the new models. Dyed-in-the-wool bikers not
impressed with the sleek Japanese look. Musta been a tough styling
call for Harley - stick with the faithful or move with the times and chase
the baby boomers who don't want something out of the Wild Bunch

I wasn't following this comment, so I went over and took a look.  I guess it'll
appeal to some, I guess.

I've been riding a Honda Pacific Coast for the last 10 years.  I wanted a Harley
(Electra Glide), but couldn't afford it at the time.  So I went to the other end
of the spectrum (if you've ever seen a Pacific Coast, you'd know what I mean).

This new line from HD does not do it for me.  Guess I'll be riding my '89 PC800
for another 10 years.

Kevin

BTW, to keep this somewhere in the ballpark, I've been thinking about putting an
accelerometer in the bike to activate the brake light when I'm slowing down
(significantly) but not touching the brakes.  Anyone ever done this?

Tony, I was being facetious.  I'm not enough of a hard-core bike lover to
spend the ungodly amount of money it takes these days for a Harley.
Japanese bikes are quick and plentiful, but seem kind of like Kleenex -
you use 'em and toss 'em, it's not like they have any personality.

My wife's grandparents were riding their ex-police 1200 until they were
well into their 70's.  Wesley installed an electric start only when he got
too old to kick it, I'm told.

Hi Dale,

Me too. No drama intended, hence the grin in the post.

I'm not hard core either. I've been riding for 25 years now and I always
have and always will ride with anyone. Harley's just my preference.
Yeah, I'm still reeling from the pain of buying a new one. Still, that
didn't hurt as much as the 'feedback' from the missus :-)

I'm getting into flying now - ultralights, after I finish getting my
license. This new hobby makes motorcycle costs look like chicken feed
:-(

Maybe there will be room for a PIC project or two along the ways.
