    Yes. Plus, it's a waste of money to get an entry-level model. Once you get past the beginner stage, you want a more capable one. When I got my XLV, a buddy bought a mid-range SkySki as his...

    I have been thinking about going the route of AC-powered heater(s). If you have factory heater (that uses engine heat to keep you warm), it's got a heater core that needs protecting. On mine, it's...

    I mean that the bike is the first step in the mid-life crisis chain of acquisitions. The next step is either a boat or a Porsche.

    I never waited for a mid-life crisis. I went straight for the...

    How many were freshly divorced? Alimony. Child support. Life insurance makes him worth more dead and alive. He realises that impressing women in their mid-twenties has a priority now. Suddenly,...

    A test drive while towing your boat (including at least one decent uphill) would be best.

    In 2005, the engine choices were a 310 HP carb, a 325 TBI and a 340 MPI. I recall an engine upgrade price of $1200, but I cannot remember if that was 310->340 or 325->340.

    The NAPA 3299 worked great for me. It was productive to call ahead. Not all of the local stores had stock, and the one that did only keeps one in stock at a time.
