Wish i lived in Florida, i might get there, one of these days. I see your bike has a kickstarter; is it true real men kickstart their Harleys? I mean seriously, pushing a button just isn't the same thing!

Which is why:
A. You switch to Chevy 6 cyl. points. Most AP stores still carry them.
Or
B. Change to electronic ignition like I did about 25 years ago. The first iggy lasted about 18 years without so much as an adjustment.

Howdy, ARBY. I'm in Cape Coral and normally up for riding, but I just had hand surgery and will be down for a bit. But maybe we can have a beer anyway if you're down this way.

Just last year some Aussie clown from the forum (how'd he manage such a pretty wife?!) named Chris stopped by on a scoot adventure around the state.

You're welcome to stop by and shoot the shit most anytime. I'm near Six Bends Harley.

Well, OJ is close to halfway correct! I've had probs riding for awhile with both hands painful so mid January I had carpal tunnel surgery on my left hand/wrist. It also included cleanout of the tunnel by the thumb and some other RA iinjections etc. Surgery seemed to go ok. I'm supposed to have same surgery on my right hand in a few months.

A week later they took splint off and HOLY SHIT. The normal Carpal surgery is around 3 stitches ... mine was much different at 6 stitches. The top 3 stitches were fine and taken out with a minimal scar ... the bottom three were all fucked up and the wound had butterflied open around the stitches. Horrible. Looks like a FUCKING VAGINA ON MY WRIST! It's a fucking mess. and doc is playing it cool although him and the hospital fucked up and I will have a huge scar with bumps and ridges. Yeah ok, it will look sorta cool according to some, but it's doubtful they would want something this fucking gross on their wrist/hand.

Aside from all that, everything is peachy!

I would have to agree with the Aussie Wombat. Sheeyat, just the ride on the Dax Banana Boat is worth the price of admission itself ...

And, i found out a couple squirts from the accelerator pump on the newer carbys eliminates the leanness and backfire when starting. also, you don't have to kick it over for 3 hr.s, like i seen some with the old Ferry Morse magneto iggy did.
Well, i highly doubt any of you even know what a magneto ignition on a '60s Harley is like.
Some even broke out their knee, trying to kick start!

Yeah, my first Harley was a '48 Pan. Kick start, suicide, hand jammer. Put on a SU carb. No problems starting. Cold, 2 primer kicks. Warm 1 kick. By the way, live in Port Charlotte, Fl
