    yeah - but once warmed up these air cooled engines work so much better

    Keith, are you running straight weight oil in the XL in this cold weather, or are you just riding the Evo?...You can, and probably should use 20/50 in The Ironhead...Like I said in a recent post, it's very important that the oil gets to where it's supposed to be quickly at cold starts...

    Again today it was a little "fresh" - just over freezing with the wind chill (or traveling at 50 mph).

    Except for the little bit of hail, it was a "nice" fall ride.
