    Just to spice things up a bit, here is a little info on Amsoil filters and oil for the real toys in your fleet. This has nothing to do with mowing grass, but i thought there may be a few of you Harley guys out there that may be interested. These products are available to you with a commercial account that costs you nothing. Save 20-30% off retail. PM and I can get you prices if needed. From what I have been told, Amsoil is cheaper than oil at the Harley dealerships. Look for yourself and determine if that is true or not.

    We went into a nice Harley shop in Janesville, Wi to look for a Christmas present for my brother. Wow I couldnt believe the prices we saw for everything.
    Dont get me wrong I make a nice income, but man Im glad I'm not a Harley fanatic.
    I race four wheeler. If you want a real adrenalin rush go 60 mph through the woods with only 2" of wheel clearence between some trees and have 400 other racers behind you trying to get the finish line in first place and do that for 2 hours straight nonstop.

    i just bought a Harley about a month ago .. one thing i dont get about all the Harley riders and leather they wear is half that stuff looks queer as hell... like something the village people would wear. But i am a former sports bike rider so maybe i just dont get it... but it still looks queer:laugh:

    mowing grass 1111,

    I am a current sport bike rider and I don't understand the attraction to the Harley clothes either. I also don't understand the attraction to the bikes. I'll take my rocket anyday.

    I am 32 years old and currently own an 04 Suzuki gsxr 750. I have owned a number of other sport bikes before this one. I can't see myself owning a cruiser style bike anytime in the near future. I totally agree with the speed thing though. A sport bike is meant to go fast and they can be somewhat boring running down the road too long at the speed limit. When I get to the age where sport bikes are unconfortable I think I will be looking at one of the large dual sport bikes. They are comfortable and still very quick. I also ride dirt bikes and snowmobiles. I guess maybe it is a speed thing for me yet and maybe someday I will grow out of it. It's like a drug almost.
