Brian, I live in Santa Rosa now. I lived in SLC Utah in the late 60's. Wendover was just a cool cruise in my 66 396 at the time. Breedlove and Arfons (SP) were cool to watch. On the off season we would ride dirt bikes on the wet salt flats, ever seen a dirt bike go underwater on the flats. Being a teenager it was funny. When you were up there did you ever go for a swim in the great salt lake? You just float!!!
I love your basics of basics posts, the one that I love is the windshield installed kit. I rode my Harley up to and old school glass shop and before I could get my helmet off some old guy came out greeted me. He said "I heard a Harley. I kind of liked that. I asked about Butyl tape, He said we use urethane, But I have some Butyl tape.
