Check coil pack and plug wires...could be loose, similar thing happened to a buddy, nearly pulled his hair out trying to diagnose, then found the coil pack loose, no more issues

Ramble on, brother!  That was all good stuff and great pics.  You looked like quite a tough guy back then.  I looked like a complete geek!
A lot of us were thoughtless when we were younger.  Not trying to get you in trouble with Linda, but maybe you left that jacket on some young lady's bed one night?   :o :D

Thanks for the memories, Dan.

Harry, I can assure you that did not happen, no jacket on no bed... :(

I finally got a chance to ride the beast😄 wow the power difference is huge! It feels the same off idle and then revs so much faster. I slammed the rev limiter yesterday lol. Very rideable and controlled, if you want more it’s there quick but still very tame when wanted.

Enjoy the ride. You will be happy.

Worth the trip.  Generally, the 3 Sisters roads & parts directly west of Kerrville are more for riding (not many people/cars/bikes on weekdays) & less for wildflowers.  To enjoy the ride & the scenery instead of I-35 I usually take Hwy. 377 south from Bembrook/Granbury to Burnet to Marble Falls.  16 out to Llano is good, lots of roads around Austin are.  Marble Falls, Fredericksburg, and Kerrville are all good places to stay depending on what you want to ride/do while there.

Here is a link that gives some info on towns in the Hill Country that usually the best. http://www.texashighways.com/travel/item/6387-wildflowers
Lots of other resources are out there, we always enjoy the area, do not always hit the flowers at "peak" but has usually never mattered that much.
Thank you iski. We will spend a little time with that link. As far as places to stay, we have got to where we camp off the bike a lot, so campgrounds with showers is what we try to find

I'm asking for a buddy that has an ongoing issue. Below is what he says is going on with his Fat Boy.
Any ideas that I can pass on to him would be appreciated.



Any ideas on my prob. 2000Fat Boy. Intermittent fault over last 2yrs.Engine shuts off as i am riding. Shuts down 4-6miles,leave 30seconds n starts, 200yds shuts down but starts straight away, 1/2mile shuts down and wont start for few mins, anoth mile shuts down but starts straight away. When this happned 2yrs ago pressumed fuel and cleaned carb n all ok until last summer then did it again last year but fuel tap weeping so changed it. Now this week done it every day(carb stripped n cleaned). Tonight on way home mate following saw blue flame from rear exhaust just as shut down. Forums say Bank Angle Sensor or Cam Sensor or Crank Sensor. Dash codes are all showing clear. Any help appreciated as to replace all sensors will cost a fortune.

This is both sad and interesting to read, with alot of well written posts.

Bottom line is they have a sumping problem on the M8 engine, that is independent of the tune used.  It's a very weasely position taken by the moco to avoid responsibility due to the aftermarket tune, even if stated up front.  People shelling out CVO money deserve better.  JMHO.

I tend to very much agree with these statements. From my perspective, if there was a recall for safety or mechanical failure, the recall would be handled at no charge REGARDLESS of any and all modifications to the bike. The "weasely position" you reference, IMO, is the fact that Harley has NOT made the oil sumping and transmission fluid transfer issues into recalls. These are well known significant defects that appear to be occurring in a high enough percent of the new M8 bikes to warrant appropriate action under the terms of a recall, NOT under the terms of the warranty.

In fact, I'm quite confident that low mileage 2017 and 2018 bikes will undoubtedly have sumping engine failures and transmission fluid transfer problems well AFTER their factory warranty has expired. These failures will occur on 2017/2018 M8 stock, harley-modified and after-market modified bikes well into the future. For those bike owners that don't discover these significant failure points until after 2 yrs into their ownership, they are going to find themselves in the exact same place as this OP (assuming they don't have an extended warranty).

That being said, HD is a business that's struggling so no one should be surprised when they take the absolute least costly approach to issues they are experiencing, even if it burns some customer bridges in both the short and long term.
