Riding with the Harley's

Saturday I went on a memorial ride here in central Illinois. We went west from Peoria almost to the Mississippi River. A few nice roads with curves, a lot of miles through the small towns in corn country. Not really scenic but we are in the nations bread basket. Buy the time I got home I had put 295 miles on my bike, and met some nice people. I really enjoyed the day. The money went to the Children's Hospital in Peoria. My bike performed flawlessly. There were 4 metric bikes, the rest were Harles. This was the most miles I have ever ridden in one day.

New to me 2004 15k Last liscened in 2011. Stock as they come.

Thumbs up

Hey Mcneuby, glad to hear that your getting out and putting some miles on your new bike. Im still doing all my riding by myself,and for a 91,it starts up first time everytime,and will still get up and go if I ask it to. Other than an AGM battery and some Iridium plugs,mine is still stock also. About a month or so ago,when I would hit a bump hard,I was getting sharp pains in my right chest.My Dr. took a scan and I found out Ive been riding with a broken rib. Its feeling better so I ride every chance I can..Just thought Id say hey and take care,Paulywog.
