Howdy from the Houston area by a Louisiana transplant. I’ve been riding a few years with my wife of 31 years. We have two married sons, three grandkids and a fourth due in July.

Together, we currently have four iron horses in the garage. My wife has a 2018 H-D Heritage Classic and a 2015 H-D Street 750. I have a 2017 Indian Springfield and a 2006 Suzuki Boulevard M50 that our youngest son rides most of the time.

In addition to our bikes, I help maintain my brother’s 2005 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500. We also ride with our father who bought a 2019 Tri-Glide this summer after a five-year stint without a bike.

Been watching the forum for a bit, but didn’t realize I had not registered until today. Due to the diversity of the bikes, I participate in a few forums. This one seems to have all of the bases covered.

Resist as long as possible. You could keep the Heritage for your pleasure and ride the OL on the triglide. I enjoy my trike, because I can't ride the hog any longer. I'm looking for something lighter perhaps a 900 Vulcan or M50.

I had a 01 Volusia 800 which is practically the same thing except I couldn't find any spots for that year. Rode it for 7 yrs before buying the Heritage. The road between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg TN is 35 mph. A Porche and I did 70 through those curves my floorboards looked like knives. I had pegs on the crashbar and with feet up the bike was perfectly balanced. After buying the Harley I was disappointed by the piss poor suspension on tight curvy roads.

The trike is like riding on the hood of a Cadillac and it is easy to forget I am on a trike. Be careful of pulling next to a bike with hard saddlebags or posts at gas stations. It too has crashbars with pegs and I take curves with ease with my feet up. Take the Dragon or the Snake and stay 2-3rd anyway.

I enjoy riding the M50, as does my son. Whenever I mention trading it for something else, he usually just says, “I really like the M50.” It is a comfortable bike to ride on and doesn’t feel very heavy.

I had a VStar 1300 before my Heritage, nice bike but the motor had a wine to it that bothered me. The suspension was better but to me the Harly handles better. PLUS I have Harley Davidson tattooed on my left shoulder, not cool on a VStar.:cool:

Are you a 2x I will sell you a Harley leather jacket for cheap.

Since the wife is the one with the Harley’s, she is the only one with Harley gear. I wear an Indian Motorcycles Mesh jacket or a leather jacket with a large USMC patch on the back.
