I am fairly new to this forum. I have been reading a lot and enjoy everything that I have found. Lots of good information.

I have been riding bikes on and off since I was five. Mostly dirt bikes. Four years ago, I purchased my first Harley. A 1977 ironhead sportster. I have the bug. I also purchased my wife a 1995 883 sportster last year (she said that I could not upgrade my bike until I got her one). I could not wait to upgrade to a bigger frame bike for myself. Well three weeks ago I went all the way and purchased a 2001 Ultra Classic. It's been below freezing here in Northern Illinois for the past month, with enough snow to make it impossible to ride, and I have not had an opportunity to climb on it yet. It is killing me!! Is it summer yet?

I am looking forward to enjoying more of this forum.

Take care,

Steve M.

Welcome Steve.

New toy in the garage and too much snow must be tough to handle.

Nice bike you have and congrats on the OL liking to ride.

Take care and post up.

Welcome aboard. This is a great way to pass the time with good people until the weather warms enough to hit the road.

Beaut Scoot-

I do not miss the weather in Illinois, man, let me tell ya. Near frozen me nuts off last time I was in CHI-TOWN, brutal as all buggery with that wind.

WELCOME !!
