That sounds touchier than my Miata.
Move the steering wheel 3/8 of an inch and it's changing lanes,... right now!

I hope you have fun with your trike. :)

Today I washed and waxed the painted and chromed surfaces and applied "Aerospace Protectant 303" to the assorted rubber and vinyl bits.

I never use high pressure water and usually end up giving it more of a sponge bath with distilled water than a drenched bath with (our hard) tap water.

Except for a small area where the paint is slightly chipped she looks like new. :)

Sorry:  Posted in the wrong forum.  :-[

Took the HD to work today.    Until I can get the head tightened on the 95 and a new chain and rear tire for the 07 it will have to do.   I may be able to make some time tonight but it looks like I will be on the Harley til Friday..  Mehhhhh...

Beautiful bike. I used to race those back in the 60s.
