I'm having a great time reading the forum and thought I should introduce myself. Hi to all from Bangor. I've been riding UJM bikes for years and never thought I'd want a Harley. My wife bought a 2007 XL883R last summer and that changed my tune. I bought a 2007 XL1200R from the dealer about a month ago. It was used but only had 8 miles on it, so I'm calling it new. I'll post a pic when I can.

I'm the kind of guy who has always done his own work on his ride but I'm nervous about screwing up the warranty. I'm learning lot about my bike from this forum before it even gets home. I've left it at the dealer until the snow melts a little but I anticipate bringing it home this week.

This forum is really great. Thanks for sharing all the good info.

The dealer sold it to the local Elks Club for a raffle. The winner sold it back to the dealer because he didn't want to pay the excise tax (is what I was told). I got a good deal on it. Technically used because it was previously titled, but new enough for me.

Say hi to Steven King for me.

My wife and I have seen him a few times around town but have resisted the impulse to bug him for an autograph, which is saying a lot considering my wife has collected first edition hardcovers of almost all of his books. He seems a very private person.

It's gotta be kinda cool just to see the man. He's been one of my heroes for many years.

I knew a girl from Bangor, once, and I'm pretty sure she mentioned that she dated his son for a time. And that's the extent of my Bangor knowledge. :D

Welcome from South Portland, Maine

Good to see someone else from Maine here. There's not much representation from Maine on the GoogleMap. Do you think this winter will ever end? Portland is darn close to record snowfall this year, isn't it? I think they said 90+ inches so far.:frownone We've had even more but I can't remember the exact number:frownone:frownone

And welcome to the forum from Australia! Congrats on your R. And I'm willing to bet your wife sighed with relief when you bought it as it meant you will now leave hers alone ;) Hope she plans to join us too!
