Well, I'd been promising myself a bike for years, but between paying to support an ex-wife (and then a fiancee after her, now an ex-fiancee) I never had the extra cash after taking care of everyone else to take care of myself. Well, no more.
Newly single, I came to the realization that once I didn't have to pay for a truck (or food, insurance, etc) for my ex-fiancee, I now had some money freed up. Enough money to afford a Harley. FINALLY.
So, after a LOT of searching, I found EXACTLY what I was looking for. 2012 FLHP, all black, 103, ABS, only 5,000 miles!! Great condition, perfect for what I want to do. Going to swap out all the chrome (other than the engine) with black powdercoat, and really make it look mean. I can't wait!

Anyway, been riding the hell out of it (about 500 miles since 7pm last night... LOL) and having an absolute blast. Having worked at a Harley-Davidson dealership before, I've ridden a ton of 103s (and a ton of FLHTP and FLHP bikes, in particular) and I've got to say this is one of the strongest I've ridden. I just love it!!
Anyway, that's my story, and I'm stickin' to it... LOL
Looking forward to being an active member here, and would love to hear from any other FLHP riders!
