Default It's Official, Hot, Humid and now... Love bugs

Welcome to Florida!

The hunting season for Love Bugs has officially opened.

No licensed required, since they are the ones after you, your paint job, and your patience.

See you in 3 weeks....

Better you than me on the Love Bug scene. Have eaten quite a few of them over the years and have decided maybe they would taste better with a garlic maranara sauce??????
Probably not.....

What? You guys can't get the 3M paint protection film?

Or is it those golf ball size welts you get on your forehead when you hit them square on?

Reverse was expensive, but necessary for my size. Like it when I need it!

Try Rejex. Designed for airplanes. I use it this time of year.

No problems with the reverse. I will say the dealer was fixing one on a trike before he did mine, so I know he was experienced.

Do some searching on trikes, not sure it is designed for the weight, which may be why he was fixing it. Electric, not gear driven. This may be one place Harley has a leg up on others.
