Thumbs up New from the mountains of Idaho

Hey - one of my bucket list items was to have a Harley Sportster much to my wife's dismay. Came across a bike last summer and I finally fulfilled the dream. A 1984 XLH with 35,000 miles. My wife accuses me of looking at it more than I look at her. (She may be right).

A buddy gave me safety and riding tips and went with me on some trial runs. Usually don't do too good on tests but I wanted to ride my bike. Passed the written and driving test first go round.

Always have the wife check the weather and love those days when I can head to work on my bike. Living in northern Idaho the # of riding days is limited...

Rode 4-legged horses all my life. Now I am riding an IRONHORSE.

Well, then, welcome to the Forum from New Jersey! I expect your bike knows how to say "Potato potato?"
