Hello, my name is Steve and I have been riding since college in Az. almost 10 yrs ago. Had 2 bikes, both crotch rockets, consider myself lucky to be alive. Anyway back in school had a girlfriend whose dad had several Harleys. Iniatially I would ride with him on the Honda 900RR but then it happened. He actually let me ride his Dyna Wide Glide and it was all over, that was it, the seed had been planted. Problem was there was no way this student could afford a Harley, I could barely afford to pay attention back then. I think I even tryed to use student loan $ to buy one of his bikes. So fast forward to this New Years weekend. I finally did it! With some serious pleading with the wife. She was not to excited about the idea because of the fact that we just had a baby boy 2 mos. ago. Anyway things have settled down and I got the green light. I actually ordered the bike last Aug. and got it this last fri. My second baby of the house is a 06 Cobalt Blue Deluxe. Got to ride all weekend here in N.C., weather was awesome in the upper 50's. Anyway just wanted to say hello and that I have been reading this forum for many months now and received tons of usefull info. and look forward to the new riding year!
