Welcome from Cambridge UK!
Iv often thought about getting an Ironhead just to join in the conversation here!
But - its vanilla EFI for me, and no puddles on the shed floor.

None of my bikes leak unless a seal goes then i replace it ext.
I love carbs I run a SU .
Don't tell anyone but those fuel injection rubber mounted engine bikes are dependable and comfortable. A cat who worked in a shop with in Phoenix rode a shovel for years and now he has one of those dressers that are all the rage right now . He rides to work and works to ride. So i dont have a problem with it.
I have been riding hardcore rigid bobbers and choppers all my life but thats me .
I have worked on mostly Flats Knucks Pans Gen Shovs , Cone Shovs and Ironheads.
Some of the shops i worked in made me work on late 84 to 2002 .
But those days are gone.
Motorcycles are for everyone for the restoration to new stock or a cat like me who chops and strokes em.
My Dad 84 years young says there's two kinds of riders .
line crowding hogs who are riding like there on a moped or speeding jack asses i fall into the later.
chain drive rigid frame build with my hands.
Also my theory its not whats you ride its if you ride i ride with guys with chopped triumphs, chopped honda 750,s stock goldwings doesnt matter if you are willing to ride in the rain ,
cold, heat .
People who own motorcycles are a dime a dozen .
Those who love them are one in a million.
Thanks for the reply.

I have some family living in Alberta... you're right, it gets bone chilling out there in the prairies!

This is my first ride, and I shopped around for 5 months before I could buy it. I had my eye on several sweet Iron Heads, and the odd Shovel or two. I'm not sorry I bought an '05, but some of those older bikes sure had a lot of character!
