Hi. I work for an HD dealer and have now for over 4 years. I've worked in most every department besides the shop. Currently a salesman and am looking to stay interested in what's happening in the community.

My first bike was a 2003 Honda Shadow750. The first time I took it out on the road I ran out of gas and have kept close eyes on my trip ever since.

I ride an 04 FXSTBI which I love, but am currently in the process of trading up for a VRSCA.

I am not a biker. I am a motorcyclist.

My biggest pet peve is the myth of solid wheels.

Thanks for the hospitality and happy riding. (If you're lucky enough to have decent enough conditions for it). Merry Christmas!

Regarding solid wheels,

They don't catch crosswinds and affect your handling negatively any more than do cast spoke or laced spoke wheels.

By the way, 8-Ball
Great looking King. I've always liked a white bike. The contrast between black leather, white paint, and chrome is beautiful.

Welcome to the forum. Tell us about the red strat. Agree with you on the solid wheels. MY pet peeve is when someone implies my ass looks fat in chaps.

This has always been my thought as well... glad to have it confirmed.
