That's one good looking bike Larry, but do you remember how to handle a two wheeler? You should hit the gym first to build up your legs. While your building your strength I'll ride the Harley to keep the battery charged at no charge. 😁 Congrats and happy biking.

Its definitely culture shock. Very torquey and easy to ride. Steep learning curve on the fancy electronics. Yesterday the ride up to ocala was cold as balls.

Now you and Billy need 1-2 more and form a Harley division within the forum😛
Great looking ride. I also rode yesterday and "cold as balls" pretty much summed it up

ok 1500 mile report. The bike is really a great cruiser. I'm afraid to jinx myself saying I really like it. Its way fast enough for me and then some. Two things I dont like ; the seat and the foot brake position , which are correctable. Other than that its pretty **** nice. Still getting used to being back on two wheels ; probably cuz I'm an old fart. All the switches and stuff like that are great quality compared to the Indian. Probably equal to honda electronics or better and the paint is flawless. Oh one other thing ; warhorse harley is on my dont go list , their sales dept blows! New port ritchie harley kicks ass
