Angry Harley Sqids...... 4/8/08

So I was on my way home from the Pearland meet and I am going down Red Bluff, toward Seabrook.

I happened upon some flashing hazard lights on the jogging trail on the side of the road and as I got closer notice that they are coming from a Harley, and there is another parked next to it. I naturally pulled over to see if they needed some help or anything. They weren't dickheads like many of your typical HD riders. Squidin it up is one thing, doesn't really bother me anymore, I am used to seeing it all the time, and know that nothing I say will change it (although I wear full gear and endorse similar practice). Turns out one of the guys snapped a belt and they were waiting for a tow truck on it's way. What really me off is that the found this time that they were stuck on the side of the road, guess they figured this was Miller Time (guessin they like to keep the saddle bags stocked up) aside from the cans they were drinking at the time there were several more laying on the ground nearby.

One of the guys, I can assume will be riding home in the tow truck but the other ......


I don't know why this irritated me. but it did, so there

Should have called the police, then taken pictures and posted them in the Squid thread.

Not only could he wind up dead but more importantly he could be the dumbass drunk who swerves infront of a car with your best friend in it causing them to lose control....

But snapping a belt? isnt that kinda hard to do? I always heard a belt will outlast a chain. Must have been old or defective.

You run a belt on the sportster? How does it handle the turbonium(when its mounted)?

Not hard to do at all - just get a piece of gravel in the pulleys and it cuts the belt.

Watched a belt come off a HD down in Galveston one day last year as he went through and intersection. I talked to the guy - he lives on a gravel road and it was the second belt that has been cut.

BUT - normally they are pretty durable.

ah! i didnt think about something getting in the pulley. Makes sense.
I always scratched my head when my Dad would explain to me that chains stretch and last roughly 20k-30k miles, but a belt doesnt stretch and can be good for up to 100k.

Not hard at all. I have snapped probably 5 or 6 during my time on harleys and custom choppers. the last two I snapped were from using nitrous. Belts suck - chains RULE!!!

must be why the 'american muscle' bikers ride so slow! LOL

They don't want to pick up any rocks that could cut their belts, cause they might run out of BEER while they are waiting for a tow!

You run a belt on the sportster? How does it handle the turbonium(when its mounted)?
belts snap easy, easier w/o the turbo, more torque down low. with turbo the belt was happy because the boost comes on gradually. I was way surprised when I slammed 2nd gear at full throttle and full boost, it seemed to rip the tire loose easy instead of having just enough power to still make the tire grab and stretch / break the belt.
I broke 2 belts from slamming 2nd gear when the bike was totally stock, I've got almost 5k miles on the belt with the turbo motor and I run the out of it deluxe.
