I've been lurking around this forum for awhile and it seems like a nice place, so I thought I'd join in. Here's my story (and I'm stickin' to it). I started riding a minibike back in the 60's, went on to motocross in the 70's and then on to road bikes. Anybody remember the 70's? I had a Honda complete with ape hangers and a sissy bar. Always wanted a Harley but didn't get one until two years ago. I bought a chromed-out FatBoy on ebay and been lovin' it ever since.

I live in Michigan so the ridin' season is too short but then we are used to it. I was born and raised in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan so I'll always be a Yooper. Livin' below the bridge now with the Trolls.

Glad to know ya,

Holden

Welcome aboard, I know what you mean about a short riding season I would love to live where riding season was all year round although maybe then the excitement would were off and when would you do the repairs, I would need 2 bikes for sure.

Hi Holden and welcome. Does anybody remember the seventies? Yep, some of my finest times on a bike. Man, have things changed though. Hope you're enjoying that Fatboy now as much as you loved riding back in the seventies. Give us a picture when you can.

Later,

Welcome to the forum. (seems like this crowd is getting big fast!)

I think I remember the 70's. Most of it. Well, not a whole lot, but I remember that it came after the 60's! :D

And the Honda Chopper! It was a 750 chopper that didn't make the turn and threw us into the barbwire fence. I survived, but the bike didn't. We sure had some fun back then!

Thanks

Thanks for the warm welcome everybody. We had our first warm day yesterday, almost 70. It was a little cool in the morning though, about 40. Put 100+ miles on after work. Ya gotta lovit.

I'll have to get some new pics to post. Had some real nice jpeg's but you know computers. I lost them all when I had to wipe/reformat the hard drive. Hope to have some soon.

Blue Sky and Open Roads,

Holden
