I got to ride a Harley.

Post by intruderrider on Sun Jan 13, 2013 8:41 pm

My Wife and I went on a cruise to the Bahamas this past week and I got to ride a HARLEY in the Bahamas. Very Happy.
This was a great experience not only to be able to ride in a foriegn land but to actually ride a HARLEY yes if you can't tell I had a blast riding a HARLEY in the Bahamas. I think I would have gotten a speeding ticket if Our tour guide wasn't a LEO. It was pretty cool having him lead us around.But I do have one question about Harley's Do they all have a wobble?
Here is just a couple of pics[img][/img][img][/img][img][/img]

They don't wobble. That one was probably tweaked at some point.

Looks like a great time! Nice looking bike. Nice looking wife too for that matter. Very Happy

Yep, most don't wobble when trued and balanced, I can ride hands off on my 72 FLH! Only wobble is hitting above 80 with the windscreen installed..damn sail!.

Same here. Only over 80mph with windscreen on. And, even then, nothing scary.

Sounds like your bike needs some tweaking.

we all marry way above our paygrade

if it had a wobble ( 09 and up ) probably the steering head bearings , many claim that it is a death wobble

Wobble is usually caused by loose head bearings. Its an art to get them set correctly. Glad you enjoyed it.

Maybe cupping on the front tires? I've had the wobble on two different bikes at two different times and both were where the front tire had gone south, replaced it and all was good.
