after lurking for a bit...it's time to join in! For Christmas, I sold my old buddy, a 75 Ironhead, and bought a 98 Lowrider--my 9 y.o. son is now riding with me, and the Ironhead just didn't work for 2 up. We ride mostly Northern Idaho, Western Montana--but will now have the ability to wander more.
I have gained much from this forum already!
...anybody from this neck of the woods??

regards,
Cheapdad

I'm next door in Washington and have ridden about everywhere in Idaho.
Great riding when the snow ain't fly'n :beer4u:
I had a '75 XLCH for about 8 years then bought an Evo FXRS.
Kept that one for 10 years and over 100,000 miles.
On my second EG now but I wish I had kept that Superglide at times.
You're going to love it! :woohoo:

Hey. I live in Spokane but spend most my time riding in Idaho. I usually hit the Hot Rod Cafe and Cruisers every Thursday night for bike night. Great times. Anyway, welcome and enjoy.

Welcome to the forum. I live just north in Southern Alberta. Do spend some time riding down your way, beautiful country esp around Seeley Lake.

My wife and I took my Wide Glide up to Spokane and CDA this summer. We stayed up there for a week. We just put our house up for sale in the San Francisco Bay Area and plan on moving up there this spring.

thanks for the welcomes!
yep, we're fairly civilized, but the winter can drag along--look closely, you can see the ice covering the street....
AND...Lawrences gets all my business, very good folks--Scott and Lucky just did a once-over with this bike, and played a big part in keeping my old Ironhead on the road--honest, knowledgeable, and friendly.
A favorite ride for my boy and I is CDA to Sandpoint, to Clark Fork then up the river to Thompson Falls, across the pass to theCDA river, then home. Except for the 5 pound bugs along the Clark fork--it's a great way to run up 225 miles!
Cruisers is a bit too much bar for my 9 y.o. rider--but he can sure down the tacos at the Thurs nite Roadhouse/Hot Rod Cafe get together!
