From one northern California rider to another, welcome to the forum. The roads around here are great for riding and I hope you have a lot of fun with your new (to you) bike. Wave when you see me, I'll be the one on the black Harley. :^)
I ride an 01 FXDX in Atlanta that I bought about a year ago and have already stunk some money into it as I am sure you have. Had it totally repainted, new V&H slash cuts, and a Ness fairing. Big fun to ride.
