Back riding after 35 years

I rode a Suzuki 750 35 years ago and a Harley has always been my dream. So even though I am over 60, I made the decision to get back on and ride; and this time it would be a Harley. I bought myself a 2009 1200 Sportster Low, and although I haven't had a chance to ride it much yet (I live in Oregon); I have loved every moment that I have been on it...even in 38 degree weather - but the sun was shining. I have a lot to learn about Harleys and am happy I found this site.

Thanks for the welcome. I feel like a "newbie" so much has changed .... from no longer needing to grease and tighten my chain to looking for the right way to clean the high tech visor on my helmet.

Merry Christmas/ happy holidays to all
