A little friendly advice from an old Snipe, don't tell everyone how disgusted you are with Harley and Buell in the same website where you are trying to sell the afore mentioned Harley.....

As you where...

At least use a different username, like sarnaliduece does...

"Funny, but that Springer looks like it has a leaky Buell motor in it!?"

The "98 FLSTS" looked to me at first like "98 Fists". I was thinkin' "OK, 'zackly who is gonna be beaten up this time............?

I'm waiting for someone to ask what a "snipe" is...

A hint for the audience; there's at least two kinds - one has feathers.

Sarnali2,Your advice may be correct. I had lap top turned on before releasing clutch on brain. Thanks for your service, how many years did you spend below deck in the engine room? I had a look/see down there once, hotter n hell and louder than inside a drum. Somebody's got to keep it all going, grateful it wasn't my job.

HD builds a fine HD, but I have higher expectations as far as reliability. You may have noticed there was no price listed, just looking to see it vacate my garage at a reasonable $$. Figure a HD fan knows what they are getting into. The bikes I have ranted about have not measured up to my expectations.

I did 4 years on the USS Independence CV62 as a BT, home ported in Norfolk I got out as a BT3 in '79, spent the whole time in the pit and did two Med. cruise's, a North Atlantic/Arctic Circle run and a bunch of Carribean and Gitmo Ops. There's a couple of other vets on the site too if they care to speak up. I have a couple of buddies who were Grunts and I knew some of the MarDet guys on the boat, all decent enough guys.

Welcome to the site, it's a lot of fun, mostly decent guys and gals. Watch out for Longride, he was a Chicago Fireman and likes to go on "retreats"...(you konw, the whole "Brokeback" thing....I probably don't need to explain.....)

Well I was stationed at NAS Oceana in VF33 from 1977 to 1980 and our boat was the Indy, CV62, where there were real bugs in the bug juice and JP5 in the fresh water supply. BT3 Snarli use to steal my Dirt Bike magazines and hide me from the MAAs in the machinery spaces when the aroma of red leb got too thick in the mess cook compartment. Also, I use to ride a 1970 CB100 Honda all the way up I-60 to pier 9 at Norfolk when I had to (to clean up our compartment on the 03 level before we made another carribex). PR3 when I got out in 1980. Welcome aboard jarhead.

Sadly, all that confounded wog-hemp has addled my shippies brain... It was Airman Cuddy who used to steal MY Motocross Action mags after a pleasent few hours rockin' the ganga` and letting him hangout with the snipes in our Uptakes clubhouse, complete with couchs and arm chairs "borrowed" from the Ready Rooms during Sea Trials.......

Didja ever hang out in the vent filter cleaning compartment that was right over sponson 8? The MAAs would hang out there to make sure the trash detail poked holes in the trash bags, and we'd blow copious amounts of blue smoke down on the sponson, and the MAA's would go nuts trying to find out who was smoking the evil stuff and run around like the weasels looking for who was puffing on it. Hahahha. They never found out (we could look right through the vent in the deck of the shop and see the whole sponson).

After 4 years on a boat with all those sailor boys, I'm suprised you can still sit! :)

I too was on Indy, from 78 - 81; my first ship. I was a fresh-caught (NROTC) Ensign, and was in R-Division for the first two years. One of those years I was the ship's Fire Marshal. I sat the Engineering Officer of the Watch; I usually spent a lot of time trying to explain why we had fuel in the drinking water.

I then went to Navigation Division so I could get my Warfare quals, then it was off to Dive School.

Still in the Reserves. Retirement date is 1 September.

I didn't ride a motorcycle until I was 36.

Welcome to the site, Marine!
