Well, been reading for a while now and finally decided to take the plunge and join up! I have been riding since 85 and can’t wait to get back on a bike again. Currently deployed in, Kuwait and Iraq. Hope to be home by Christmas. I am bike talk deprived so the V-Twin forum has been a welcome relief. My bike history... British x3, my favorite trophy trail 500 twin, Japanese, two many to count, BMW and a Sportster 95 883, which I had for two months and had to sell before I came here. So, that leaves me bike-less and in the need for help. Going to a big twin, but haven't decided which way to go. Should I buy brand new, we have a military program, or should I start in the used market?
