      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Oil prices

Recommended Posts

So I call Dennis Kirk to have them get 4 quarts of oil and a filter ready for me.

$6.95 for a quart of HD oil !

Five weeks ago I paid $4.95 / quart.

Enough is enough.

Got any good alternatives ?

HD makes motorcycles, not oil. Look on some of the popular Harley forums and see what others are using.

Do you want cheap? Or do you want the best value?

AMSOIL will provide the best value.

Check out the MotorCycle White Paper link on this page:

AMSOIL 20W-50 MotorCycle Oil - test by independent lab of all the popular motorcycle oils.

AMSOIL is far from the lowest price, but it is the best value.

AMSOIL on line retail $11.40/qt, Preferred Customer $8.55/qt.

By the way, I believe that Harley branded fossil oil is made by Citgo, and Harley Screaming Eagle by Castrol.

Thanks Oilman,

IMO, synthetic is not a good choice for a twin cam or older Harley.

Weather you believe "bearing skate" is real or myth, such engine builders as Bourget Bike Works, Big Dog, S&S do not recommend it in their engines. (Big Dog will void your warranty).

Harley Tech line do not recommend it either.

Has to do with "babbit bearing" or "plain bearing" VS. "roller bearings".

With the exception of the V-Rod, H-D and most other V-Twins are roller bearing engines.

(I do run syn. or syn. blend in auto, truck, 4 wheeler, snowmobile.)
