So long "Hogtyme"

For the first time in almost 20 years, I do not have a Harley in the garage. I sold "Hogtyme" on Saturday. I hardly ever rode it anymore, so why do I miss having it? Go ahead and laugh, but I came home after selling it and detailed the LT.

Re: So long "Hogtyme"

You can detail mine next. That detailing takes up riding time and Saturday was a great day to ride. I did 350 miles due to my own screwup. Rode to Charlotte for an MSF meeting - turns out it was in Durham on Saturday and Charlottoe on SUNDAY. So I rode up to the Durham meeting. LOL

Re: So long "Hogtyme"

I am also wrestling with getting rid of my HD. I have an LT, 2000 heritage Springer and an 85 R80. I want a GS Adventure but cannot add another bike to the stable. It is winter now and not much riding. I think sell the HD. But then I do enjoy riding it at times. Ok so sell the R80, but I also love riding it and it would not bring enough money to pay for a GS Adventure. Even though I actually like the GS1150 over the GS1200. Just like the looks better and it has less plastic. I am so torn. I should just be happy with the stable I have. That's it. Be happy!

Re: So long "Hogtyme"

Hey Rich....blessings to ya for detailing that LT! I have always believed that keeping a bike clean is an important part of ownership and just "treating her right". I actually loved my LT because it was SO easy to keep clean! Same with the GT. I value my bike and want her to look great! As I always say, "Take care of her and she'll take care of you!"

Re: So long "Hogtyme"

Jack,
you are so right. Keep her clean inside and out, but not to excess. Just so's you don't embarass yourself. Got to ride after all. LOL

Re: So long "Hogtyme"

Im allmost there. I have made an obligation to buy a LT from a member of this board. Cant wait to get the LT and put some miles on it. I have to find a way to get it from Virginia to Iowa during this extended winter we are having. I am checking out shipping companies and have considered going out there with a trailer. I even checked one way flights and riding it back but that is out with all this snow, ice, and sand on the roaad. I was out in the garage tonight looking for parts that came off my ULTRA that a friend wants to buy. I have made so many changes to this bike it is not even close to stock anymore. I plan on keeping the ULTRA for now but plan on selling it sometime.

Re: So long "Hogtyme"

I can relate....

I sold my HD last year had that same (66FLH) since 1975,
many other bikes came and went but I always liked that one best.

Came home from the tag office with a handful of "stickers"
when I opened the saddlebags of the HD there was a clothes pin
holding the registrations and stickers from the previous two years.

So while I was standing there marveling at the $150 worth of stickers in my hand (personalized plate)
I decided if I'm not going to use it, I don't need it anymore.

Sold it to a friend who has wanted it for 20 years.
No regrets.

Would a few weeks make a difference in the weather?
When I bought my 05 last February I wanted to ride her home but although the route from FL to CA is in the South of the country there was still chances of foul weather (I went through tornadoes the year prior on my 03 LT). I was fortunate to have my best buddy in Boca Raton keep my bike in his garage until the latter part of March when I flew out and rode back home.
Can the seller garage the bike for you, even for a small fee? It would be much nicer to ride than to trailer, besides can you picture yourself pulling a trailer with your new bike on it on icy roads?
Just a thought...
