Default Goodbye for now

I didn't plan on this but it just kinda happened. Yesterday I was out riding and stopped in the tulsa harley dealer just for kicks. They'd just gotten in a bunch of off lease flhtpi police baggers and I ended up riding one. Well today I traded the sporty in on an 06 cop glide. I miss my sporty but I honestly LOVE this bike. So does my ass. It's like my sofa on 2 wheels. I'll be back to the sportster world before too long but I can't justify having two bikes right now. Thanks for all the great advice and companionship.

Congrats on the new bike! I do like those police models. You don't have to leave if you traded the Sporty. We take all kinds here!

Hang around...the more knowledge the better, and you can share what you've learned with others....besides, you said yourself, you'll get another and then you won't have to "come back".
You'll allready be here!

So many words, so few pictures.

I think the cop-bikes look bad-ass! Congrats!
