Bought a Low milage 06 Ultra Classic loaded for a great price. Yeah its a little heavy, but the wind protection is wonderful, radio sounds great at 70mph, gets great gas milage,
the cruise control is fantastic, and it is the most confortable motorcycle I have ever had
in the 28 years I have been riding. Havent road my other bikes since. Now I know
why they are so popular. Set the cruise, crank up the tunes, and eat up the miles.
It has the Delphi Fuel infection, just hit the starter and ride off. My buddy has a 04 with
87k miles and outside of tires, oil, it has not needed any wrenching. I must say I love my new bike. It is everything and more than I could ask for.

Good Luck fellas, May be selling my 01 Tbird. Getting tired of wrenchin it anyway.

Everyone to their own I guess. A HD is not a choice I would ever make, especially against the older deliciously designed and executed TBirds. In particular, I love the TBS. That said, enjoy your new ride.

Enjoy the bike. I purchased last spring a brand new Road King and she's awesome. I still love my 73 Bonnie but I just needed something new and wanted to buy American.

Not my cup of tea, I don`t mind Harleys, they`re OK, it`s the riding costumes I don`t like.

Enjoy the bike and keep the shiny side up. I wish I could say that the forum will miss your valuable contributions but after just 59 posts in almost 6 years, it might sound a little fake!

Are you sure you'll be accepted? There's so few Harley's around you're neck of the woods, you'll stand out like a sore thumb.

I agree, it's the clothing, attitude, arrogance, politics, sales people,
and lastly, the equipment.
Road king is HD's best bike though.

He's right. Haven't had my coffee before the insulting rant.
Actually i hope you enjoy your new motorcycle. It's all about what makes you happy and not what some Internet cowboy thinks anyway.
I apologise.
