    Default Time for a Change

    Hey guys! Gonna put the VW up for sale pretty soon. I'm gonna miss her, she's been a helluva ride. Been all over the country on that bike, but it's time for a change. I'm getting to a point where I can't do things like I used to, and the old homebuilt has gotten to be too much to keep up with. So I recently bought an '86 Electra Glide with a Lehman conversion and I'm hoping it'll be a little less time in the garage and a little more time in the wind.

    Now this doesn't mean I'm "buggin' out" on my buds here on the VW page. I've learned a ton here and made a lot of friends and good contacts, and I plan to cruise the page regularly. Knowledge is priceless, and while the vast majority of you have forgotten more than I'll ever know, if I get a chance to pass on what I've learned here I'd be honored and humbled to do so.

    See you guys and gals in the wind!

    PEACE and ride safe!

    Sometimes you have to do just what you have to do.

    You know what's best for you.

    Sorry to hear you've given up on the VW powered trike Doug.

    Not saying this is the case with yours, but sometimes they can be labor/parts intensive if the various stock & aftermarket components put together on a homebuilt don't get along perfectly & in sync with one another. That is truly one of the biggest challenges in keeping one on the road in a trouble-free state.

    Guess you'll need a new avatar now to match your new ride?

    Hope you get what you're looking for $ wise for the VW, and enjoy riding the new to you Harley.
