Figured I would start a thread where everyone could tell about their Weekend riding experience.

I live just outside Tampa FL, and definitely not a weekend warrior. Ride my Fury almost everyday (if weather permits). But on the weekends, the wife, & friends like to get together for longer destination rides.

This weekend was Bike week at this town center. We rode up in a small group, hundreds of bikes total, with tons of vendors & spectators. As we pulled in I was so wishin that I had my exhaust already:mad: but the Fury still got PLENTY of attention. Parked right next to a Big Dog,:D a few bikes down from my Honda dealers booth (who later asked me to pull the bike in their booth for them to show). Crowds gathered around MY FURY instead of all these customized HD, Big Dogs, and others were parked right next to me, it was great! There were some people who knew exactly what it was, and others had no idea and asked the o so common question "who built it/what it is?" I just smile and say its MY custom chopper :cool:

After that we took a 200 mile ride down the coast & beaches (definitely had the knub ass syndrome kickin :eek:). Was picture perfect weather out, and the bike was lookin and running AWESOME! Turns heads at every traffic light, and beach strip we drove. Was riding with my friends w/a wide variety of bikes, but all of them jealous with the attention I get on my bike, and the performance when we all open the throttle up a little. All in All, was an awesome biking weeking, rode non stop seemed like since I took the bike to work the last 5 days :cool:

Hey man, not a bad idea.

I just spent a couple of hours cruising Sat nite on the southside of Savannah. I dug a big hole for the wife Sunday, so no riding.
Me and a bud went riding today(Mon). He just got a 2003 VTX 1800 that has already been 240ed and dropped. Nice looking machine someone traded in to buy a Fury.:) We visited a friend in the hospital, then rode out to Renegades, a motorcycle accessories and apparel shop, in Richmond Hill. Except for on moron in the mall parking lot needing, and receiving, a long horn blast it was a pretty good riding weekend. I put about 75 miles on it today.

Went south to Mackinaw city on Sun. with a few riding buddies. Walked around the shops for a while, had some lunch and came back. Wasn't bad crossing the mackinac bridge yesterday either, winds weren't too bad. It was kinda chilly in the morning, I'd say about 55, but warmed up a bit in the afternoon. I put about 120 miles on the bike yesterday. Great ride!

Hey Hydro,

I haven't gotten the did you build it question, but I did have a guy tell me to find an old VTX 1300 I can salvage the motor from and do a swap. He had a raked out 1800 VTX. Said the Fury was way under powered. he was mad that it was governed @ 100.:rolleyes:

Met a fellow Fury rider tonight...

First Fury rider I met in my area tonight...
I stopped to have a smoke by the beach and got off my bike and he said "nice bike" I looked over and saw it was a Fury, he had the same color as mine.. I replied "nice bike"
So we chatted for a while..
Got to to show off my new radiator grille from Irate Customs

Nice to see another Fury in the hood...

A few of us rode in the Alabama State Trooper Memorial Ride yesterday. It went from Mobile to Montgomery, cullmenating with a ball game. That was a quick 450 mile day complete with thundershowers and lightening. It was raining so hard at one time that I had to down shift to 4th gear... 40 mph. I looked behind me and saw nothing. I knew there was an exit coming up in about 3 miles so I hung in there and found shelter.
About 15 minutes later, my guys showed up. I asked them where they have been after checking to see if there was a problem. "We had to pull over due to it raining so hard we couldn't see". I knew that there were no overpasses to get under so I razzed them about stopping in the rain :) It cleared up about 150 miles out. All in all, it was a good day nonetheless.

Tomorrow we are heading out for a week long ride up through Tenn, Indiana, and Kentucky. See you all when I get back.... hopefully :)
