5 months agoGood deal on the low net and the greenie Ash.
I did not play today, but did ride down to the course where I play senior league in. They killed all of the Poanna greens and reseeded with Bermuda, I just wanted to se how they were growing and they actually looked pretty good. All of this rain and warm days and nights are really doing good with that Bermuda grass.
I pissed the pro off down there, he wanted to know if I was going to play and I told him not that I would not pay regular price to play clown golf. With those oversized cups and a small spot in the fairway mowed real close to the ground for the temporary greens.
They said earlier on numerous occasions that they would reduce the price when they reseeded and went to temporary greens, but then they changed their minds and stayed with full price. There was no one at all playing and only 1 car in the parking lot this morning when I went there, and that was 10am. and a beautiful morning.
The pro told me that it was unfortunate that I felt that way about playing on the temporary greens and I told him yes it was unfortunate, real unfortunate for your bill fold....!!!!!!!
5 months agoVT - you tell him - and then feel much better. Go every day and pizz him off. I hope you are having a good summer. The music at Patio`s tonight was really great. Most people were dancing the night away.
5 months agoGerry, the empty parking lot there at the golf course tells him he is doing the wrong thing for trying to charge full price for golf with temporary greens. I do not care much for the pro down there anyway, always thought he was a smart aleck. Not a very personable person to have a job like he does dealing with the public.

As I sometimes do, I make a stop at Poos for a beer and then another stop in Little River.
Somehow, I left my phone/camera in the truck, so did not have a quick chance to take a pic of this Harley right in front of where I was sitting having a beer.
Anyway, I was amazed at how (low) it was sitting..........couldn`t figure out what "model" it was.
Damned if the rider and his friends came out to ride off. I got his attention and we chatted about his bike. I said.......what model is that. Go figure, it was a 2014 Street Glide (black), just like mine.
He told me he had the front tire/wheel converted to 16" (fat) just like the rear wheel/tire. Along with a wider front fender, it looked totally different than mine.
McG could very easily straddle one of these Street Glides set up like this one. To me, it seemed to sit lower than most any Softail would.
He got the conversion done at a shop near Charlotte. Hey, with the advantage of front/rear combined braking as they have, McG with one set up like this one...........could still get "into the wind".
5 months agoLots of baggers have front and rear air now so they can slam them but air up to ride (if they want). The Fat look is OK. Better than the 31" fronts I see on a bunch of them now.

Yep, I`ve seen the (air) assist setup on several rides. I don`t think this S. Glide that I`m speaking of had any "air" suspension involved.
The wheel/tire change just dropped the whole deal way down. The guy was not too tall and appeared to have a somewhat "short" inseam.......leg length. When he got on it, he could plant his feet on the ground and his knees has some bend in them.
Not always possible for a short inseam rider to do on a full sized Harley Tour model.
5 months agoSome have low bikes but I don`t know how they can do corners like that.
5 months agoHaHa - Eod - the foot boards will stand you up straight if you lean over too far. My old Fatboy did that.
5 months agoThat`s what I`m saying, McG. These "Fat" bikes are LOW! I scrape my Road Glide boards at stock height. Worse when it`s lowered. I love twisties. I guess the bar hoppers don`t do that.
5 months agoHell some of these wannabees that ride Harleys these days only take them out of the garage a few days a year just to show them off. They would never even think about trying to ride on a road that has s turns and swooping turns. They only ride them in straights lines to and from shows , and bar hopping and the dealership where thy have all the work done for them. And they probably haul it to the dealership on a trailer. I lowered a sportster for a guy about 3 years ago, he got the kit and did not know how to put it on so I did it for him. He is a short little dude though and it helped him to be able to put his feet squarely on the ground.
I would just love to see some of these so called bike riders try to keep up with Trip and Gib on some of those roads I have ridden with them on, over toward Skull Valley, and out some of those pig paths over toward Sonoma. I do not ride that bad and it made my azz draw up tight enough to snap a 20 penny nail into trying to keep up with them on some of those roads. But I hung in there!!!!!!!!
