    Well...i havent started or rode or cleaned up the bike since last yr.
    So with it pouring rain today i gave it some attention.
    I keep toying with the idea of selling her because when i have free time i prefer camping.
    My thought is that money can go towards a TT that i can buy outright.
    I am torn because i have had it a lot of years and a lot of time painting and adding stuff to get it how i like.
    The other hiccup is the soulmate says no way...and she doesnt even ride.
    I am not paying prices right now for a camper so it buys me a little time think about it.

    I would just keep it. Harleys are bringing pennies on the dollar compared to what most of us have in them....I have two of them...I have had one 29 years and the the other 21 years.

    My 21 year old bike has 97k miles. I put 90k of those on the first 10 or 12 years. Now, about all I do is go across town....I changed tires last week. They were 9 years old, but only had about 5k on them. I did an oil change, too. In 3 years and 10 months I had only ridden 1300 miles.
