I think it really looks nice, but I am not the one who is going to keep up that high polish shine.

I can appreciate the work and effort and the looks.
To me, it is a neato piece of work.

But to own and maintain it? Uh, don't think so.

My 1500 almost got a wash today, it started raining about 3:30 this afternoon.

Since they do well going in a straight line, at least it didn't compromise the handling of the V-ROD.

It probably will never see the road, a big juicy bug, a rock bouncing up from the gravel road into the shiny stuff or bird droppings. To me trailer queens are just one step above a junk yard wreck.

Life is a collection of stories we old people tell and hope a few will listen and carry them into the future.

There is a story to everything we have, everyone we have met and everything we have done or we will do or dream about doing.

We sometimes ride to forget, but hopefully we never forget to ride.

What a waste of a perfectly good side car .

Sorry, this really ain't about the Harley debate for me, this is about the V-rod debate. I HATE that bike

1985 LTD.... 121,000 miles and counting

Would it help to paint a picture of the bike, on the sidecar?
