  7. More than happy to assist in Education...

    1. Been riding collectively since I was 9 yrs old. That would make it 34 years but, there was 8 year break while I was in the Navy. So, that would make it 26 yrs of actual seat time on a bike.

    2. First generation. (I was the rebel/blacksheep of the family)

    3. Style AND performace BOTH.

    4. NO...not my primary means of transportation. I also own a Dodge Durango, and Dodge pickup.

    5. Depends on the season. Winter 100-500 / Summer 500-1000

    6. Male

    7. 35-50

    8. 21K-50K

    9. No. I answer to no one but myself.

    10. Used

    11. Water cool the V-twin. Dont change ANYTHING on the motor, just add water.

    12. NO! Reasons? I have had nothing but metrics prior to this bike and I must say that style/performance and being American made has sold me to be a die hard Harley owner till "DEATH DO US PART"!

    Good luck, Hope you do well.
