I like the forum. I had a 1973 XLCH back in the day, in fact I worked in a Harley shop for a good portion of the 70's. Then came jobs, marriage, kids and college tuition for three sons. I had a couple of metric bikes but always wanted to get back to the Harley's. The boys are grown and the wife said buy the bike (she said she would look good on it, or maybe I told her that). I got a great deal on a 2005 Softail Standard. It does feel good!
