Trailboss to Roadking – day 1
Vegas to Zion national park.
I’m spending the month of August in Montana again. Figured I’d do a fun little week MC trip with the lady on the way out to MT. I considered a week trip from Denver to MT but then thought Vegas to MT had more scenic stuff and national parks.
So I rented a 2021 Harley Roadking for the week. I wanted to try something different.
I have a herniated disc L5/S1 which is annoying. Hopefully it doesn’t act up on this trip. Fingers crossed.
Vegas is a great location to start this week road trip but Vegas is disgusting, I won’t be back. Fremont Street was fun for a little bit.
It’s as hot as a Tijuana hooker in hell.
Once we got an hour outside Vegas the scenery became great.
Initial impressions of the Harley…
Kickstand makes me nervous.
Bike sends vibrations through my head on highway which I’m not used to.
So far the bike is working out great.
Passenger seat is like a living room sofa.
Damn the bike is heavy as fuck.
Clutch is a cable not hydraulic, and cable feels like it’s gonna snap.
Transmission is pretty bad. Finding neutral is the worst out of any bike I’ve ever ridden. Maybe previous renter warped clutch plates?
In Zion now and exploring. Views are great.
