I got my first Harley this year. One of those guys who bought all the magazines, Harley books, Harley Tapes, a few shirts, but was never allowed a motorcycle growing up, then the same thing when I got married. Then got good life insurance and the wifey said maybe a Harley wouldnt be such a bad idea after all!.LOL. Not really, Ive got a good ole lady. She really understands shes got to let her old man get out and do the things weve got to do..........with limits, of course. <G> But hey, what an incredible experience. I took Harleys Riders Edge class(wouldnt of bought one without it!), I have riden 1800 miles in 5 months, thru the winter no less! Spent endless hours when not riding thinkin about ridin or dressin up my Fatboy............Ive fallen HARD For HD! Wouldnt consider anything else. Ive attached a pic of my 2002 FLSTF. Im very proud!
