    Hi Guys I am an 85 year young rider. I took 30 years oof , and now I am back. I rode a Henderson 4 back in 1941,aHD 45 in 49 a Hydro-glide 74 in 50 and built a 68 stoker in 51, which I turned 126.46 in the 1/4 at Santa Ana drag and 144 in the mile. which stood for 3 whole Week's.. Along came Korea War and I had to give up riding for awhile. Anyways in 2012 I got off of the couch and bought a Sportster Custom XL1200--- a 74. It is coming back to me slowly but I will ride the wind maybe not as fast but nearly as good. Can any one tell me what is a good battery tender? What do you think about the Riveara Pro Clutch and the Jagg oil coolers. That's what I am thinking about installing on the Sporty. I have a bad leg so I put on the Legs-up landing gear, I was a little concerned about my stability, but now i don't need it. Things came back better than I thougt they would.

    Also hope I'm not in trouble with Tank for putting it on here. I do read the rules but at times I have trouble with their application:D.

    Welcome to The Forum, Thank you for your service. That is quite a resume indeed. As far as your questions go if you post them in the Sporster section you will get more responses
