Remember when I asked everybody for opinions about an HD 883? Well, Tony bought it.
Salvage title '06 883 with almost no miles. Extra shiney bits and a loud exhaust.
He needs a website like ours though; he's got to pick up some tips ---
He was asking me this morning how many quarts of oil I thought it might hold... :lol: I've ridden a few Harley's but I've never taken a wrench to one.

Anybody know who's the Fred H. or Stu O. of the HD community?

I remember very well buying my first new motorcycle. It was a 1973 Sportster 883. I bought it from a dealer on West Colfax in Denver. Really an AMF. I had it for about 2 1/2 yrs. Living in Denver and being pretty young I was able to tough it out and ride all over the area. Sturgis, Western slope of Colo, Wyo, Utah, Az and New Mex is what I remember now.
I sure dont regret it but I sure couldnt do it again. I can remember my arms being numb up to the elbow on some of those trips. Getting off the bike after a long day and having my back be almost locked up.
Looking back it was all part of the journey. I wouldnt be surprised if your friend doesn't go ahead and move up in comfort and power in the not too distant future. Hope he rides safe.

Just tell him to go to google. Type in: Harley Davidson Forum Boards, and he will have several to choose from and look at.

It doesn't matter how much oil it holds, it's how much he needs to take with him to keep up with the leaks... :lol:

Thanks all; I've emailed him the link to this thread.

He spent a whole day shining it up and charging the battery; like a kid again.

Motorcycles are cool.
