The world's a mess it's in my kiss.

Damn it's dusty in here...sorry about the lack of posting, been building a new house, barn and turning in a record amount of overtime to pay for the fancy stuff to go in it...lets see where I left off, hit a deer, been riding the FXRP with a busted fairing....still love the bike and wonder how the FXR did not put the Japanese manufacturers out of business, until I read old reviews of the FXR and see why...geeze the hatred of American made motorcycles...the new issue of Walnecks has a review of the 1986 FXRD....well lets just say it is a telling sign of the future American haters that we are seeing the closer we get to 9/11...

But I digress...ever wonder what happened to all the FXR's? I mean they made an awful lot of them, are they pushed away in peoples garages ashamed that they chromed them out and painted them teal and orange?...people don't scrap Harleys...I was noticing all the bikes I see on the road today...lots of old Evo powered Electra glides...not one FXR...(I know Genghis would have a field day with this topic but really I want to know.) Where did they all go?


  1. At least you see some Evos. I rarely see an Evo of any kind, other than my own 160K+mi FXRS. Runs better than ever thanks to EV13 cam and Progressive suspension.
    It's amazing to think of all the other riders suffering with the leg-searing heat of the twin cam engine and a six speed so poorly engineered it requires a compensator sprocket on the rear wheel.

  2. Evo's are becoming rare these days...I wonder if they are in garages...really I wonder what happened to them all...

  3. I have a 1986 FXRD and I love it. :)
