Use Amsoil, Seafoam and Dynabeads. It not only makes your bike last longer, but promotes hair growth, a more youthful complexion and a testosterone boost.

What's the best oil for a C50?
That's the radioactive question, but I asked it too once because, well, it's a legitimate question. If you want to slog through the thread:

https://www.volusiariders.com/60-help/415710-first-oil-change-question.html

Short story: I ended up using the Mobile 1 15w50.

For what it's worth: I'm not responsible for anything I say, on any subject whatsoever, to anyone, anytime, even I don't listen to me sometimes, so it's still your choice. :laugh:
I've been using it all summer, daily riding and touring, and so far, so good.

He's is just stirring the pot. He knows it's a toxic question.

Maybe you missed them at Sturgis. We saw several even though I was not looking for them. More than that, we had more than several different encounters on our 7480 mile trip.

An example, pulled into a Motel somewhere in Kansas. While we unloaded, 4 Harley Ultras, all same model, different colors pulled in two doors down. Made drinks, found out where they were from and where they were headed. Pulled chairs outside, under the eave to watch the sun set. Next door, on the other side pulls up a newer C50. Guy was beat, so after a quick hello he just disappeared into his room and we were gone the next AM before he came out.

Perhaps because I had such a great time after my divorce riding a C50, or perhaps because I met so many great riding friends who remain my friends today, almost 15 years later, I notice Volusia/C50s.

Like many have said here, I don't rule out a C50 when the monster I ride now stops being fun.

One grace about the Western Volusia/C50 riders is the vast distances we ride, just to meet up. From Calgary, Abottsford, and Medicine Hat, in the far North to Silver Prings and Cameron Park in our South, and everywhere in between. Often these mostly former Volusia/C50 riders will ride alone or in a small group for 3 or more days, just to party for one or two nights before heading off the long way home. To counter that, almost all my Harley riding buddies used to live within a 50 mile radius. I moved, so now, everyone is 300 miles or more. But even on my quiet rural street, every so often I see, or more often now, hear a M50 go by the end of my driveway.

Not maybe, more like certainly. :grin2:

I'm sure there were some there, and I haven't been actively scanning for them, but they still seem pretty rare. Maybe mine was one of the ones you saw...Who knows. :smile2:


A side note: Next year is the 80th Sturgis Rally. I'm thinking of making my reservations earlier than usual (I usually make them in the Spring). The 75th was HUGE, and people were being turned away even at the campgrounds unless they had a reservation. I don't know the the 80th will draw those numbers, but it's a long way to go to find there's no room at the inn.

He hurt his neck, trying to figure out what the drunk contractor was doing at his new house.

Oh you should see the latest. So I'm finally getting the basement set up and I open the bathroom cabinet door to load supplies into the cabinet and the plumber cut a hole in the bottom of the cabinet for the drain trap. WTF

You must have used the guy that I bought my house from as a contractor. I went to change out the toilet in my basement bathroom and found out the only thing holding it to the floor was a bead of caulk. The bolts were in the toilet, but they weren't attached to anything but the toilet.
