I can't answer your question. But I do have a question for you. What is the big draw for music on a motorcycle. With all the natural beauty around and the excitement of being on a motorcycle, what is with the music? I once rode with a group. Their music was so loud, it ruined the ride experience for me. Plus, there are already lots of things I feel that are more important for me to monitor than what ever tune may be playing, Traffic, the bike, the environment, me, my passenger. Maybe I am just too easily distracted by the music. I don't ride with them any more ... just not pleasurable for me. I am sorry you are having this trouble and I hope you get it fixed - definitely not something for me.

5 Basic Reasons To Be Seen Comfortable

There are possibly a great number of advantages for dressing in more comfortable clothes but here are five factors to take into account if you want to give up the uptight life-style.It is hard, very hard to be imaginative or in a inventive mood when you find yourself} awkward. It's hard to let those resourceful juices flow when your concerned about how you look. So listed here are 5 justifications for letting go and dressing up in comfortable clothes.
The very first stage of the imaginative course of action is dressing in clothing that produce you feel great. Am I expressing that you can't be resourceful in uncomfortable clothes? No, but I am saying that putting on comfortable clothing gives you a heads up and an edge that is hard to beat and who in our midst can't use every benefit we can get..
1. You'll Get More Work Done - When you've got a big project to get done, what will you usually do? If you're anything at all like me you're going to get a cup of no matter what you drink, for me it's white tea, put on good quality music and obtain into your "funkies", do you know what I mean those clothing that feel so good and comfortable you're feeling like a million when you put them on. Let the body be you. Once you've all those encumbrances off the beaten track you can begin your project whole heartily. Now you are relaxed and {ready to go'good to go}. Setting yourself up to work(win) like this raises your productivity every time.
2. You Do Greater Work When you're Comfortable - Making it possible for your body to relax and become comfortable takes all the disruptions away so you can achieve much more and better high quality work will result. You are not sidetracked by a inflexible training collar or a belt that is maintaining in what wants so bad to get out. Those distraction are gone, you can pay attention to the duty at hand understanding that your body is ready to get on with the task.
3. Not viewing For The Time clock - I know that after I'm uncomfortable I can't wait to get home and to get involved with something comfortable so I'm continuously watching the clock, prepared to get out of there at the slightest excuse and ready, willing and able to get into my "funkies". A sure sign of not becoming successful is watching the time (can't wait to get out of there and into some thing comfortable.
4. Your Work Will become Pleasurable - Supplying you are doing a job you like, you'll enjoy operating whenever you wear clothes that is soft and comfortable like the Pajama Jeans. Work is no diverse from relaxing in the home if you wear clothing at home that mean you can feel uncomfortable you're going to feel uncomfortable just "chillin", except that being uncomfortable you won't be able to "chill". When you wear clothing that you enjoy wearing, look good in, your countenance just shout's "look at me, I'm worth knowing".
5. Life preserving specialists previously wear comfortable clothes for a reason - That explanation is that they can can't be worried or worried about that they look or feel. They have to be ready to do what's necessary when called upon. When you wear uncomfortable, binding and mind altering clothing you are not allowed that flexibility. To do their best they have to be ready. I know you're possibly going to tell me that you can't wear scrubs on you job but, do you really have to wear uptight clothing to work?
There's a trend taking place across America exactly where a lot more people are choosing to wear sensible clothes like the Pajama Jean to work. More and more organizations are experiencing the advantage of allowing relaxed clothing rules for the work place. When you feel good, you will do your best work and best of all you'll enjoy what you do.
These 5 items are merely the tip of the iceberg on the subject of features about dressed in comfortable soft clothing to work. Exercising your curiosity and I'm sure you can come up with a lot more ideas like these for putting on great feeling, comfortable and mind motivating clothing to work. Isn't it time you joined the emerging trend toward great feeling comfortable clothing that is dispersing across this country.

I just bought a 2001 Harley Heritage springer. Does anyone one know how to rebuild the front end with the new bushings?

It's a very involved process and you can be seriously injured if the job is not done properly! Get a service manual and read the rebuilding proceedure. If you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, take it to the dealer.

My confidence in riding my motorcycle

Hard to tell if you are just starting to ride motorcycles or if you haven't driven in a long time.
You have to learn to be confident on your motorcycle, and learn to feel comfortable while driving it. I would reccomend to practise driving it on roads with very little traffic, so you could get used to driving it, start by getting used to the acceleration, then get used to the counter-steering.

When you are used to both the acceleration and the steering/counter-steering, you should get used to accelerating (not too much) while driving in curves, and letting go of the throttle while driving in curves (don't release it quickly, but to give less power to the wheels so it slows down).

You could aswell drive along a road, where there is NO traffic, and drive forward and from one side to another, just like practising countersteering.

The most important one, as I think, is to master to drive in certain speeds, DO NOT drive faster than you feel comfortable with! And do not drive past the speedlimit, unless there is clear sight and no traffic (and especially no cops ;) ) But I repeat, DO NOT drive faster than you feel comfortable with, even if you are driving with others, never drive faster than you feel comfortable with, that might cause a crash, that could even be deadly.

If none of this helps for your confidence, you should actually just go for it, and drive, don't drive too fast in the start, and don't do hard accelerations. :)

Sincerly, your fellow mc-brother :)

2003 Harley Road King....Just had the rear tire replaced and now I hear a slight whining noise. Pulled off the interstate for fuel and almost every gear "Jumps" unless I really baby the throttle....

Hmm! This is a difficult one as I can't feel the tension of the belt nor hear the sound for myself. Any time you have anything done to your machine by anyone, ALWAYS CHECK BEHIND THEM. Mechanics are only human and as such, we make mistakes just like everyone else. There is nothing different in a Harley-Davidson mechanic than any other mechanic. And, since it's you riding the bike, you have a vested interest in making sure that your bike has been repaired correctly and is safe to ride. Always go behind the mechanics and check for loose bolts and things that are not done correctly within the scope of your knowledge of your machine. If you don't know anything about your bike, at least look for obvious things that were overlooked. It's for your own safety.

As for the noise. Check the alignment of the rear wheel in the swingarm. Make sure the inside edge of the final drive belt is not rubbing the edge of the tire. Check the tension of the drive belt. Most drive belts feet "too tight" to the average person in that they don't feel like they've got any slack at all when you check them. It should have something like a 1/2" deviation with a 10 pound force applied to the belt. Usually, a loose belt will "chirp" when you change gears. Sight along the top of belt looking toward the engine and see if it looks straight. Check the adjuster screws to see if they're the same length. Basically, look for obvious things wrong. If you're still in doubt, take it to a shop and have them look at it. On several occasions, I've seen people load their bikes too heavily and the bike sits down in the rear end. This caused the top of the final drive belt to rub the underside of the inner primary just below the starter and make a whining noise. All I did was to tighten up the shocks just a bit to stop the problem. You may not can see this as you must be sitting on the bike to check. Get a friend about your same size to sit on the bike or someone else to check it while you sit on the bike.

This is about all the advice that I can give you without actually putting my hands on the bike which I can't do. I wished I could have helped more. Always remember, it's your fanny riding that bike and if something isn't done correctly, it's your fanny that may get skinned up. You don't have to be a high-dollar mechanic to notice things that just don't look right on your bike but if you don't look, you won't see them. NEVER trust any mechanic to not make a mistake. I've been doing this for years and I still make mistakes from time to time but usually I catch them before the owner gets the machine back. See, I learned to check behind myself years ago.

Do I need to remove the deck to replace my blades?

you don't have to remove the deck if you have a way to get under it. i have used car ramps, jacked mower up and used blocks any way that you do it be careful. if you don't have a way to get under the mower then yes the next best thing is to remove the deck. the one good thing about doing that is that you get a chance to look over things and if something should addressed you'll find. take your time make sure it's right.

How to ride a harley?

# Find a suitable and rideable Harley Davidson motorcycle. Not every Harley is suitable for 'cruising' or riding distances shorter than a few blocks or miles. If you really want to enjoy all a Harley has to offer, find a Harley that runs well, is comfortable, and one that you can handle. If you find the bike too heavy, drop down a level or improve your riding skills on another, smaller bike first. In general, the bike "heaviness" runs in the following order, from heaviest to lightest: 1. Road King 2. Softail (includes Fatboy) 3. Dyna Glide 4. Sportster * A note about the Sportster: Some consider it the most difficult to ride, despite its lightness. This is due to its relative unbalance and high placement of the gas tank thus raising the center of gravity. Despite this, it remains one of the most fun Harley's to ride, and is exemplified in carrying the honor of being the longest running production motorcycle in United States history. # Decide how you're going to get your Harley, either by borrowing, renting, or buying. Sometimes renting or borrowing (provided that you have a motorcycle license) is the best way to introduce yourself to the world of Harleys without a huge financial commitment. # Observe the bike. Look at the subtleties and richness of the chrome, or lack thereof, and special features unique to the design of the particular Harley you are going to ride. Prep the bike for ride by checking the gas level, tires, lights, and any obvious flaws or defects. # Get on the bike. Remember, "right is wrong." Get on the bike from the left side, as it is good etiquette. Feel the handlebars, feel the weight of the bike underneath you. Pull the choke if need-be. Then... # Start the bike. Listen to it. Feel it underneath you. Let it warm up as you warm up to the bike. # Ride the bike. See the road scurry underneath you. Feel the wind in your face and on your body. See how it's just much better when on the bike. Feel the rumble in between your legs. Lean back. See the blur of the side road as you look straight ahead. # Enjoy the ride. Harley Davidson motorcycles enjoy a rich and storied tradition. Riding one is not about the speed or handling of the bike per se, but rather, the enjoyment of the feel and embodiment of the entire experience. Look at the scenery, hear and feel the engine. Look to your right... to your left. Even look up at the sky - all the while making sure to keep another eye on the road to stay safe. Beware of 'cagers' ie. car drivers.
