2007 Firefighter Harley Ultra travels from Texas to Serbia for Brotherhood.
By Wild Bill.
In May of 2012 even though it was very chilly at 5 AM I was riding my ‘07 Firefighter Harley Ultra to work for a typical 24 hour shift. The cold ride to work was worth it for the beautiful ride home after shift! During training that day I was very significantly injured – retired on permanent disability from on the job injury – and had to be brought home by ambulance. Long story short, I was robbed of my ability to ride, at least at that time and certainly not atop a heavy Ultra. As a result my bike sat outside for some time and later even longer sat in my basement!
Rocking the Battlefields.
Thursday night Tesla rocked the battlefields in Gettysburg. Following an excellent day of riding and visiting the band played for over an hour without a break. Jeff Keith can belt out the songs and was truly excited to be at the rally. His energy is contagious and he really lights up the stage. The bands that are lined up for the event will provide some great music.
TC Bros Choppers’ 6.25” wide spun steel rear motorcycle fenders are made in the USA. Spun from 13GA (.090” thick) premium American steel, these are heavy duty and built to last. Parallel sidewalls make for easy mounting to sissy bars or fender struts! 27.5” inside diameter fits 16” tires perfectly, and 6.25” inside width accommodates up to a 140 series tire. Works perfectly with vintage style 16” tire sizes such as 5.00×16, MT90-16, 5.10 x 16, etc. Also looks good on OEM style tires such as 130/90-16, 140/90-16, etc.
Polaris Industries’ upcoming three-wheeler, the Slingshot will be a game changer for the world of three wheels. The final product remains quite a mystery, and no official bona-fide specs have been dug up about the trike but that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from churning, and there seem to be a few safe bets about the new toy. - See more at:
