Since I'm a new owner of a Softail Standard,I thought that I would see who else here owns the same.

I finally got my new 05 home to the garage on Friday. It was 26 degrees outside, but I couldn't just sit there and look at it so I had to take a ride. All I can say is WOW. Moving up from a sporty may have been the best idea I've ever had. It's a totally different animal. I had no idea how much better a softail would ride and how much more power they have, mind you I had an 883!

I love the forward controls and the way it rides in general. It's like going from a Yugo to a Cadillac as far as sportys go.

I'll post some pics in a couple of days.
Nice scoot 05_Harley! Like those bars and I'm thinking about getting the same ones.

It was pretty bad riding in the 26 degree cold, but the roads were clear of salt thanks to the rain we had last week, so I figured I would brave it.

Saturday was actually 39 degrees when I got off work and I got my first 50 miles done. It was great.

Looking forward to 50 degrees hopefully in the next month or so.

Good luck canadian brothers. Hope the weather breaks soon and you find yourselves on the road again!
Dang that's one mean lookin ride you got there Ozzie. Those bars are damn nice! Mind me asking where you picked them up and how much they set you back?
Some new pics of my '05 FXSTI

Thought I'd post a few new shots of my bike since I changed a few things. Had the tank repainted vivid black and put emblems off a Street Glide on. I wanted to get rid of any colors on it except black and chrome. Also put on the front turn signal relocation kit and finished putting the diamond plate foot pegs and pedals to match the grips. :chopper: <br>

Thanks Shaw_2112.

I actually work for one of those "beer of the month" clubs where you get microbrews delivered to your house from all over the U.S. I work in a huge warehouse full of good beer! It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it!!drunk! :beer:
