from 80,000 miles on my Street Glide. Uses no oil, no smoke, no leaks, runs fantastic. The drive-train is a 100% factory stock 96 CI with a H-D 6 speed. Oil changes in all 3 holes every 5K miles with top shelf synthetic oils, along with the basic maintenance items, and these Harleys will move your soul for decades.
Had a great ride Friday to the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley, NC Friday. We took the scenic route to WTT. 64 through Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Hendersonville, then 276 to Waynesville, then 19 to Maggie Valley. About 4 hours. Was my 2nd time visiting Wheels Through Time, and just like the first time, this place is awesome. Even if you’re not a motorcyclist, consider visiting just to learn the rich history of the early American motorcycles.
While there, we had lunch at Brickhouse Burgers & Pizza. Food and service we’re both top shelf. Check them out when in Maggie Valley, NC. They are just a minute or so south of the WTT Museum.
Life is great. It’s even better on Two Wheels!
Took off with Ben and Tim to Lake Lure to have lunch at Lured Market & Grill. Lunch (as usual) was great and the ride over Hwy 9 back to Black Mountain was very enjoyable.
that Sue and I would much rather deal with Tilley’s Harley-Davidson Service Department in Statesville, NC, rather than Blue Ridge Harley-Davidson Service Department in our own hometown.
Trust and integrity just too mention 2.
Arrived without an appointment on a Saturday morning with 2 tires to be mounted on rims. Did not expect nor did I ask for instant service. They got me in and out within 45 minutes! WOW!!! Great service.
While I was there I browsed in their retail section. Nice selection of normal service parts, brake pads, oils, helmets, etc. Will be using Busted Knuckle in Newton, NC for future services. 100 times better customer service than Blue Ridge Harley-Davidson in Hickory, NC.
I’ve owned and worn a multitude of boots for motorcycling over the past 45+ years of riding on the street. Everything from GI issued combat boots, hunting boots, hiking boots, and motorcycle specific boots. Any boot is better than no boot. However I have now found the best motorcycle boots I’ve ever worn.
The ICON Stormhawk. They are lightweight, waterproof, offer increased protection, and utilize a unique lacing system. Been riding with these for 6 months now, and love these boots!
Decided to try a set in my Street Glide and in Sue’s Road King. Went on a short 4 hour ride across the BRP and was pleased with the performance. Ordered more to change out in the Low Rider and the Deuce..
