And the story: This is the bike that started my infatuation with Harleys. It is guilty as charged. Ya see, before this bike entered my life, I rode those annoying street bikes. I had an '06 and an '07 GSX-R for awhile. Sold the '06 and eventually found Hog Nasty, my first Harley. We fell in love. I occasionally dabbled on my Gixxer, just because I didn't think I was strictly a Harley guy, was I? At only 24, surely I preferred the wheelies, dragging knees and insane acceleration. I couldn't be an ol' fart who strictly loved Harleys yet, was I? It wasn't until I rode with a couple of friends. One on his street bike, and the other on his cruiser '80s Honda Goldwing. I took my street bike to have some fun in the canyon with the other cat. The entire time I just wish I was on my my Hog. Within a week I sold my Gixxer and got an 05 Sportster as my daily driver with the intention to turn my Shovel into something fancy.
I now own 3 bikes. You can see them in my sig.
Have a good day everybody!
