The way I see it my wife has all the closet space for her shoes, I get the garage for the bikes. Her car is on the drive right next to mine!


You didn't marry a life-long Southerner who hates really cold places and drag her to Wisconsin for your "Job of a Lifetime". Some concessions had to be made. smile

Nope! I love the guys at Suburban and gave them 2 tries to find me an FLHTP with no luck or even a follow up phone call. So, after a Cycletrader.com search I found this one at Reel HD in Mauston near the Dells. It was a smoking deal and I love the Sherrif's color scheme. smile It's always nice to deal directly with the owner too. David Reel is a great guy. No nonsense, no HD marketing BS, just listened to me and we went forward with the deal based on what he could and couldn't do. He knew I wasn't an average buyer, whatever that is. smile LOL

Very cool. Too bad it ain't better riding weather, riding that bad boy back from Mauston would have some killer roads to meander down.


If the good old days were so damn good, why did we bother to invent modern times?

Most missed bike: Bultaco Sherpa T 326

A very good looking bike, but I can't figure out what model it is. Would someone please identify the model, and whether the seat is standard for that model or is a factory option. Thanks.

It's an 2018 Harley Davidson FLHTP Electra glide Police bike. The seat is standard on this bike and the other Police bike that is based on the Road King FL touring model.

The only way you can get this seat on a Civilian model is to order all the pieces through the dealer and put together. If you run this excersize through Fleabay with used parts, you quickly top $500 trying to make that happen.

I like your bike a lot Shawn. Enough to want to test ride one. 845 lbs just smashed my day dream of an American made K12 RS, that's all.

I know Dennis, all good. smile It's a different animal than anything BMW, but it still handles a bit different than most HD touring models. It will keep me happy as a work bike for a few years. Of course, I will still have my BMW's in the garage as well. smile

I'm just glad to be able to share this with y'all. 😁

God knows I can't share anything else. Lol... It's a great work bike. 😎
