If I had my bike over in Japan, I'd be a lot more popular. I'd have guys I could go ride with, exchange parts, talk about ironheads into the latest hours of the night. The Japanese love the early XLs . . . I do too. We obviously share a common interest in these motorcycles. I really need to put my bike on the boat and head over for about 2 years and get my fill. The book, "5 Easy Steps to Learn Japanese" in my back pocket.
