I just picked it up Sat. A Black '03 XL 1200 Custom! Wow!!!:eek:

I bought it in Tyler, TX about 100 miles away from Dallas. Believe it or not it was a couple G's cheaper than here in the big city. What a shock to everyone as this is my first bike and I'm 45 as of Aug. 1st. I'm glad I have an understanding wife who I just celebrated 1yr. marriage with last Sunday. I gues you could call it a birthday/ anniversary/ always wanted one present. I was going to get a Corvette but at the last minute I decided to stop by a local Harley dealer. I was hooked immediately. Bought it less than a week later. I love it! My wife was actually to my surprise, happier that I got the bike instead of the Vette. I got a 100th Ann. detachable backrest and a detachable wind shield at the dealer. Next I would like to get new pipes and some storage bags of some sort.

Any way, glad to be here and I have to go look at it some more before bed!

Thanks all! I chose the XL 1200 Custom because it was the lowest riding most cruiser like of the Sportsters. Someday I'll get a bigger one but this is all I could afford right now. I bought the best I could get for the money I had.
