HOW EXCITING COULD IT BE, A VISIT TO THE LOCAL 'DEALERSHIP UBERMARKET' . . . . SEEMS TO GET MORE BLINGED OUT, MERCHED OUT AND HYPED OUT BY THE YEAR . . . . AN ENTIRE WORLD OF SHIT, ALL MARKED WITH THE BAR+SHIELD . . . . SIR, DO YOU WANT JOCKS WITH THAT BIKE?
Dropped in to see my good buddy today, the most knowledgeable Harley parts specialist in the country without a shadow of a doubt, he's buying another classic, a '75 FXE, five grand from the States, great score, checked out the 2014 sickles as well . . . . the only big twin I'd ever own from new is still the Super Glide, gave a demo model a thrash around the block, definitely the one that is meant to be ridden . . . . here's a couple of quick shots of two things that caught my eye . . . . the purple metalflake on the 'Seventy Two' skirtster is amazing quality, the photo doesn't do it the justice it deserves for a stock tank, as I was mentioning the other day to someone standing within earshot, Harley have gone from having the worst factory paint in the industry to the best, bar none . . . . the 'Tri Glide' was actually a pretty cool bit of fluff, never really paid any attention to a trike before in my life other than the odd servi-car and a custom or three, but if you're down to one leg or suffering from some form of handicap it'd be perfect, it ain't Ed Roth but, hey, nothing is.
