I ride my 72 FLH when @ home and avg 2-400 miles weekly unless it is a flood coming down. If I keep it below 60-70mph nothing really works loose except the usual mirrors getting loose. after I put it back together orginally with the blue lock goo.Had to with the engine drive train hard mounted to the frame, it also helps that I have the full fenders,front shock covers still installed the extra weight comes in handy sometimes. But their is still the vibrations that wear on the hands after steady riding for a while and hopefully that will be gone when I replace the rubber riser bushings. If it isn't vibrating it is not running!!!

So true Jack, it really runs sweet in that range and gets 40-45mpg. I just reinstalled the windscreen,front engine guard, the select comfort seat and hard saddlebags for the 100+ mile wounded warrior ride this coming saturday.

Nothing wrong with riding slow and paying for quality parts(provided they are quality ) my son recently transferred to the marine corps air station Hawaii ( Navy) and bought a 93 Dyna lowrider. We have been going over the bike thru text messages and e mails and other than needing a tune up and service in good shape. Did have an issue where the bike was acting cold natured and he had to have the choke partially pulled out to run. well he pulled the stock CV-klien carb off and sent to have it cleaned and performance tunned. Something to consider since the stock carbs after years get all gummed up internally causing fuel starvation or hot running engines. An again as for riding slow more time to react to any situations that might occur and mostly to enjoy the ride and not see things in a blur..
