Meet Rafa. Rafa came to us on his motorcycle journey from Brazil. Rafa started his journey after leaving the Police Department and studying criminal justice to travel the America's by motorcycle. Rafa started at the tip of Argentina and followed the coast to America. His plan is to travel though Canada up to Alaska, then back to Milwaukee for the 115th Anniversary before starting the journey home.  Rafa said there is nothing like the freedom of watching the sun raise over Yellow Stone National Park. He sold everything he materially acquired during his career to fund this journey and additionally, makes cash along the way as needed. He has stopped by us, here at Indian Motorcycle of Metro Milwaukee/2 Boss Performance, after being turned down by multiple other dealerships in the area, because of the age of his bike. The engine had 160,000 KM on it, was using oil and was in dire need of a rebuild.  We gladly took him and his 2003 88 CI engine in and are now turning it into a 106 CI engine. It is actually cheaper to move to a 106 CI engine, because of the availability of S&S parts. Rafa straps his tent to his motorcycle and camps along the way.  When you take long trips like this on a motorcycle, you hope you don't have any mechanical issues. Unfortunately, when you have an engine failure, that is usually the most expensive and time consuming issue to repair. This has taken a hard hit on Rafa's budget. 2 Boss Performance has offered to donate all labor. Please help Rafa buy his parts and continue on his journey!

For all us with a dream of wanderlust, imagine yourself on a journey like this, then running into mechanical problems and finding like minded generous people to help.  Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
