The lady who sold me this '04 Sporty swore it only had 900 miles on the clock. Watch as I learn the truth.

Phew.

BTW - was there no way to attach the positive lead first (as one always should)?

It was simply a Corona virus precaution.

As a mod, you should know that.

Thanks NightWing!

I'll be the first to confess my videos were pretty bad when I first started, but now with new software and a year of practice, I'm starting to feel a lot better regarding my abilities.

Quiz
So the previous owner said that it had 900 miles.

And you found out that it had 900 miles.

What am I missing ?

OK, I get it that he was a bit harsh in his criticism, but ejection? Are we becoming all that thin skinned? And is it possible it was a bad attempt at humor? Unless there was another post Iím missing that was deleted???

Thanks for the negative. Altho it means absolutely nothing but if it floats your boat....I wasnít agreeing with him just wondering other possibilities. Humor? And preaching tolerance. A concept thatís obviously foreign to you.

I think the 92 you are referring to is the thumbs up on YouTube. Only 5 thumbs down. I donít find myself giving thumbs either way on YouTube. So Iíd say itís rated pretty highly.

4.3k views on YouTube overall. Also seems pretty good.

652 views on MV. Not bad for viewing an HD barn find on a scooter site.

Just sayiní

You have to give the HD guys some credit. My only pet peeve is that they never wash their bikes. And they leak oil. They're always on their cell phones walking around their bikes. It's strange. And then all of a sudden half a dozen of them show up to fix up the horn or something. Maybe a turning signal is not working. They're so tribal!

Funny Max. Don't we all belong to a tribe of some sort or other? One of my personal life's pleasantries was finding my tribe where I felt an immediate kinship. I've been part of that tribe, and it part of me, for several decades now and I have a great affection for it.

Now back to JP's HD barn find.

Tough to say. Weather has been cold and/or rainy for the past week and will stay that way a few more days. I work on my bikes outside, so it could be a week or so.

Thanks for asking!
