I have been wanting a Harley all my life and after having a few old beat up metrics I am making my dream come true. I pick up our FLHTI when I get back from Iraq in Feb. next year. I am stationed in Ft. Stewart, Ga. and currently servinng in Baghdad. My wife and have done some riding but not nearly as much as we wanted to due to the condition of the bike that we had at the time. Now we will be able to ride anywhere and are happy with that. We plan on a lot of extended riding after I retire from the military. Any suggestions for new Harley riders are welcome. I do plan on upgrades over time but will be in no rush (I tend to do alot of research on these things being as how I turn wrenches on cars alot). Our first will be the addition of a backrest for the wife. I have read many of the forums and have been happy with what I have seen as well as appreciated the many articles which lend advice and experiences. Hope to see everyone on the road.
