I'm Tony, and I bought my first Harley on Saturday. '04 Ultra Classic in blue with half a century on the clock. Love the bike, but it's already given me headaches. I got the dipstick issue with the stupid LCD gauge, was broken already and I didn't know it. Never seen one before, how was I supposed to know, right? Found out because the dang thing tried to kill me after popping out whenever it felt like it. The fairing is missing a couple mounting screws, so it rattles, easy fix. 1/4-20x1/2" if I'm right. Seems a little loud in the top end, but I've come from Hondas, so it might be normal, I don't know. Been riding on and off for over 15 years, so I'm definitely not new to bikes, just HD
. I got a great deal on her from the dealer, met the PO as well, so I got some history on the bike.
Me, I'm a gearhead from childhood, haven't found much I can't or won't tackle (except brake line bending), and a 10 year Army Soldier. Getting out somewhat soon, may be continuing in my current line of work, but I'm interested in changing to something like a Fish and Game or Conservation Officer type job, got some free schooling coming.
Anyways, looking forward to great information on here, and I'll probably lurk more than I post, at least until I see something I can contribute to.
Have a great day!
