I too have been "lurking" for a year or so and finally decided to sign up. I started riding in 1971 on a Triumph 650 and by 1972 had a '57 Panhead with a straight leg rigid frame and an 18" over springer. After being beat up for 6 years, I got a '63 Pan and some shocks but the damage was done. Later, I got a '76 Shovel until 1984 when I had a bad accident and didn't ride for 10 years. Last year, got divorced and bought an '04 Dyna Wide Glide. Just took it in Monday for the 95 kit and 203 cams with SE II pipes. Not the hottest setup but something I can afford now. I have 16,000 miles on it and don't ride in the snow!
