Been riding a long time but just bought my first Harley last week. 2002 Ultra Classic. I had a freak accident last fall that shattered a bone in my left foot and more important, shattered my confidence. I couldn't ride that bike again so I sold it. My wife is a new rider and wanted me riding with her so I had to do something. Gradually, we'll both be riding again and she will get better. Glad to find you all!
