My buddies new GT..........

Converted another Harley rider. Some may remember Tim who did a Ceder Key ride on his loud Harley. He will bike it up this coming week. Took it out for a ride on Saturday. Nice dark blue, sounds great.

You're both killing me, now stop it. At least I get to ride Saturday to my tech session. Ride it out of the gearage, that is.

Ruptured left distal biceps tendon. Surgery Wednesday AM - cast for ~6 weeks.

Thanks for the offer, I think I can muck on through it. The cure will be worse than the injury, since my arm is about 95% functional now. The cast will make it difficult to do a lot of things, but impossible to ride a motorcycle.

Re: My buddies new GT..........

When I was 21 I broke my left thumb dancing with some nut who was messing with my gal. A cast precluded clutch work, so she piloted my Triumph (she had 6 large, Polish brothers), I rode bitch and held it up at stops. I desperately wish I had picture of that.

Good luck, Randy. Hope you recover quickly! Maybe you can polish the fender with your good arm?

Did the same thing.

You're lucky it's distal.

Cure is not worse.Your arm may be functional but strength loss is not worth it.

I hope I won't be disapponted with my '08 - still has plenty - plenty torque, yes? Congrats to your pal on one of the first 1300's out there - sure looks nice!

You won't be dissapointed with it. Just never, ever ride the newer one.

I had a 2000LT, then I rode an '05......

Just don't do it.
