South Bay Motorcycle Cruisers Message Board › Oil Bud & Ridin'
San Jose, CA
Ok, so I have only done one ride with you all, but I have been doin' some ridin'. I know you're all patriots too, right? A couple months ago I caught a show called "American Ride" by a fellow rider called Stan Ellsworth. I found his grasp of history superb, and he expounds it all by ridin' to all the places in this country on his H-D where all the events in history happened. Some of you may really like it, really. Oh, and I'm not of the same religious persuation that he my be, but I watch him anyway. I at times think this guy should be president of this once greater nation, and he tells it without telepromptors. I think Stan Ellsworth captures your interest and is a historian / teacher extraordinaire. At least check him out.
Now a little about Oil Bud. For a while now a friend and I have discussed some of the options for oil coolers. I've heard even from a H-D sales guy locally that the H-D cooler is hardly worth it. So, I asked my friend. He said he heard of one called "Oil Bud" invented and made by an airplane guy in Montana. Him and I went and bought 1 each for our Ultra Classics, his an 07' mine an 09'. We put mine in yesterday, and so far not a single detectable leak, but surely not any road time on it yet, so time will tell. We still have to put Bob's in, but he bought it because he needs more cooling due mostly to PGR escorts and parades. He's also trying to make his mind up on a gauge to use before he installs it since the H-D gauge isn't compatible with their own factory chrome bezel. Rather than me tell you anything more, here's a link to Bud's website where his videos are what sold us on it. Just thought you all ought to at least know and decide for yourselves. If you buy any, please tell Bud I sent you. By the way, I make nothing on this, just want more to share in the air conditioning on that long ride. :-)>
Ken ...Keep on Ridin'!
