Great Photo club!

Great to see participation and new/old faces to the club rides.

On another subject, on the way to work at Triton college Saturday ( the 19th) the ole' mare development a consist, (with RPM and road speed) vibration. A little looking once at the training site and low and behold left side motor mount bolt sheared off at the cyl. head, then the motor mount broke on the right side. The GREAT folks at IL H/D were out in less than fours to pick up the bike and start the corrective process. My question is, are other motor mount bolts also susceptible to that type of failure with age and wear? Almost 40k on the odo, and 11 years old? I never had any inclination of a crack on that mount nor were the bolts loose. Just wondering.

Ride well,

Keith K

Greetings,
Is there still a discount at Illinois Harley on the day of the club meeting? The Uly is ready for new rear tire, but I can wait eight days if it will save me some cash. (assuming it was ever valid for tires...)

Thanks!

Atoms, Did you want us to install the tires or are you going to do it yourself? If yourself pick them up at the meeting and you'll get the discount then. If you wanted them installed, call service and just set up when they can do it, then let me know and I'll get you the discount on the repair order when the bike is complete. ; )

Hi Windy City Club! I am sorry I have been missing out on all the fun events and really miss all of you. I have been working in London for the past two months and make it back to Chicago about once or twice a month and focus on the family when home.

Two weekends ago I rented a Buell Ulysses XB12XT from a HD/Buell dealer in Central London and I had one of the most fun motorcycle adventures of my life! Only the Las Vegas & Death valley Trip in 2007 compares with this one. It was two days of fun riding for a total of 750 miles. I navigated via paper maps and Google maps on my GPS phone (without this I would have been lost as I don't know French!).

Here are a few photos...I was too busy riding.

http://www.facebook.com/marc.a.hickman#/album.php? aid=20266&id=1648458234&ref=mf

Rode the Eurotunnel train underneath the channel

Motorcycling across the French countryside was awesome. Gothic cathedrals and beautiful old architecture everywhere. Fantastic bridges everywhere.

There were two "Autobahn style" highways with majestic bridges and hamlets to peer at along the way. Typical speeds between 80 and 110 mph. No cops, but you have to look out for the speed cameras.

Spent the night in Caen France where I had an awesome dinner. I simply wandered into a perfect hotel...I had no freaking clue where I was and got really lucky.

riding from Normandy Sword Beach to Omaha Beach was full of beautiful villages, beaches, and historic artifacts from the invasion. Small two lane roads along the Normandy coast. Cobbelstone roads which were barely wide enough for one car.

I met motorcyclists from Spain, UK, France and Germany. It was amazing to converse with people about their trips and there bikes with some to no language in common.

I will be here through May 2010 for a few weeks at a time so if anyone makes it across the Atlantic, please call me and we'll do this adventure or another one like it again. I have been told I need to do a Belgium motorcycle trip next.

Take care of yourselves. I look forward to riding with you again when I get back to the US.

Marc,

Take the time to go to the Ace Cafe London. It's a great biker hangout in any weather. I was there on a rainy day and there must have been 25-30 bikes (along with a few Buells). Those Brits really are bad weather bikers but I guess they have to be with their weather!

Have fun!

Hi Guys, sorry I missed the meeting I was out of town. I didn't get to show you my "new" ride. I did it Tim, I stepped up to the Lightning and I LOVE it. I can keep up with you guys and actually pass a truck if I have too.
