I just turned 55 last week. I've been riding since 16.
My first Harley was a '85 XLX that i rode until a left turning driver took it away in '98. I replaced it with an Evo XLH883 that I still own and love at almost 85k miles.
I've missed my IH since I lost it, and last week I bought myself another. Birthday present to myself? Don't know, but even my wife was behind the purchase. I'm the new owner of an '83 XLS Roadster with 24,000 on the clock. It's been in storage in a basement in Alaska, but is totally original and all intact. It should be running soon, and looking good by spring! I feel like every old ironhead needs to be saved and ridden, NOT kept stored.

Nice. I would definitely be up for an XLS to keep the 81-XLH company here.
