OMG that would fuckin suck!! Are you telling us to expect produce prices to climb to the clouds this year?

On a side note, as of today Diesel is finally cheaper than gasoline again!

Mud, as Keith said, we had a blast last year. Just stayed in the Keweenaw last year but this year tentatively looks like the first night (June 7) in Marquette area, second night in St. Ignace area, third night probably in Mass, then back home on the the 10th. Would be great to meet up with you guys somewhere along the way if paths cross. We had perfect weather last year and am hoping for the same this year. Here are a couple of pics from last year. As soon as plans are finalized, we will let you know. Another guys is making the arrangements so we are waiting on him.

Diesel has been cheaper than gas here for a while.

Traded the Wide Glide in the pictures in on the Road King you saw. Did that not to long after these pics were taken. Started doing longer trips and wanted more of a touring bike but still am not ready for a full bagger.

This is what you need for commuting around the shop (It's a golf cart conversion)

So what plans do you have for the new bike Mud? Exhaust, bags, etc.? I just ordered a new exhaust for mine. Need a little more noise without being to obnoxious. You're probably going to want some bags if you are using it to commute and are planning on any trips.

I don't have huge plans to be honest, but that could all change I'm sure lol. I put V&H bigshot exhaust, Arlen Ness big sucker air cleaner with a stock black wrinkle coated cover off a fatboy, V&H Fuel pack, and some more black cosmetic shit. I ordered a sissybar with back pad for Shane to ride along, haven't gotten it yet though. The exhaust is a little loud for my liking but it's growing on me lol. Missy says she can here me coming long before I get home lol.

Here is an updated picture with exhaust and air cleaner setup. The cosmetic things are blacked out. If you know your bikes you might notice them, otherwise I doubt it lol.

I have the same exhaust on order for mine. Supposed to receive tomorrow or Friday but won't get installed until the end of May. Had to get the Fuel Pak also. Already had a high flow air filter on it.

Keith, what are you looking at? That Street Bob you were telling me about? I know you're not talking about a Poo.

Did you get the quiet baffle for it? I couldn't stand the baffles that came with it so I put the quiet baffles in, still fuckin obnoctious.

Andy - What oils/fluids must be changed annually and is there anything else maintenance wise that is a must. It has 2500 miles on it and all the fluids were changed at 1500 miles... but that was last season.

It should have recieved a 1000 mile service. Would include oil and filter, transmission fluid, adjust clutch, maybe adjust throttle cable if loose/stretched. A streetbob would also include checking wheel spokes.

He changed all the fluids himself and didn't take it into Harley. He checked for loose bolts and everything that the manual said.

That being said, all fluids were changed early last spring when the bike had between 1000 and 1500 miles on it. It now has just under 2500 miles.

I don't have the exhaust yet. I tend to like them on the loud side so will probably be happy with the stock baffles. I have run straight drag pipes on carb'd bikes before but ut grow" that. The main reason I am switching exhuasts is because the pipes I have on it know just don't have that Harley sound I am looking for.

Is this something I need to do? I don't want to dump lots of money into it but wouldn't mind it being a little louder.

You'll be happy at first I'm sure. At least you don't have a catalitic converter. You could change the mufflers too.
