Santa is bringing an 05 Nomad when it arrives on the ship from the north pole. It will be sporting an additional light bar and saddlebag liners. I just wish Santa's sleigh would hurry up. this is killing me.

We're waiting until tomorrow to do packages with my daughter (she's with her mom for Christmas day this year) so I don't know yet. I'm not expecting anything because technically, my Xmas was a 1980 Shovelhead that I've been wanting since I was 10!



I got some jewelery for my girlfriend's Aero 750 though... can't tell ya what <whispering> it's still a secret. :)

My secret Santa from another forum I'm on sent me a Vulcan t-shirt and two Vulcan keyrings. Nice.

I bought a bunch of stuff for my bike last month, though, so I told hubby not to buy me any presents. He didn't. :)

Santa dropped off a set of Craftsman metric wratchet box end wrences and wratchet box end with regular open end wrenches and a Craftsman motorcycle jack. I also got a set of brake/clutch lever tassles too.

Even though I have a cold and have been in bed most all day I had to shoot it in the garage and all I can say is....VERY NICE SANTA....THANK YOU!!!!!!! :):):)

Let me know how you make out with the jack. I have one but I have to run the bike up on blocks to get the jack under. Then I have to shim the pads as the oil pan is lower than the frame rails.

Spok,
Be careful with the Craftsman jack. I purchased one recently and the first time I used it was to winterize my Mean Streak. I had the bike on the jack just barely off the floor and was walking across the garage to get the stabilizing straps. I heard a noise behind me, the jack had apparently lost pressure, and the bike went down on the jack handle.

I now have a dented gas tank, gouged air cleaner cover, and numerous dents on both exhaust pipes on a 2100 mile bike.

I still haven't heard from my insurance company whether or not they are gong to cover the damages---

I have a motorcycle jack that I bought at Schucks Auto and have used it several times now with no problems. I always double check to make sure I have closed the valve and watch it for a few minutes right after I jack the bike up. While it didn't come with tie down straps (already have some)....you can use them to help keep the bike stable and possibly from tipping over in the event the jack loses pressure.


Rider....sorry to hear about your experience. I'd be interested to hear what your insurance company decides.

I too have heard bad stories realted to the craftsman jack, I have to commend Mrs. Santa for at least trying to buy for my bike as it isn't her favorite toy in my closet, if you catch my drift. I'll let you all know how it goes. I had read an earlier post on the jack about the bikes resting the motor on the jack itself, i've not even opened the box yet to take a look. Thanks again

Hey Rider, that's awful luck man. I have that jack and didn't consider air pressure loss an issue but you may have prevented the same from happening to me as I'll be more careful in the future. Thanks for the tip!

I have a moto/ATV jack from Schuck's also. I believe the brand name is Team Mechanix. Have had no problems with it. It does take some cribbing below the frame rails though because the flat rests (which double for the ATV) contact the oil pan before the frame. Figured that was normal and some 1x4x3" (or 2x4) blocks work fine once they're lined up correctly.

rider,
i have not had any problems yet with my craftsman jack, but thanks for the heads up. sorry you had to learn the hard way.

my bike was pretty good this year. santa took all of the body parts off it and they will be dropped of at the body guy's house this week or next. i am sure i will be spending the winter buying stuff, since i won't be riding !

Hey Grunt:

My motorcycle jack from Northern Tool will fit under my 2001 Vulcan Classic FI IF I first level the bike using my wood block leveler (from Gadget's suggestion box'o'stuff). I do have to put a shim I made from stock under the frame rails due to the oil pan issue, but it's no big deal.
