In case you missed it yesterday (because I completely spaced on getting it linked up), I posted a brief entry and a YouTube video on Troop Support. Dig it right here.
I had fun with that third frame–I haven’t had an electric start motorcycle since I was 19. I’ve had the same kick-only Shovelhead since I was 20. It’s not that I have some philosophical issue with kick vs. electric. Nah, I’m just a serious cheapskate and not terribly high tech.
With a kicker, I’m told I also save a few pounds (I was once told something like 30), and in my mind I also reduce the wiring complexity. Since I do my own wiring, I don’t have to figure out where to put relays and what have you. I thought I was uptown when I added a relay for my horn and had a working horn for the first time in twenty years. It’s admittedly kinda meepy-souding, but I guess it might be better than nothing. After all these years of no horn, though, I have no instinct for where the horn button is anymore.
