Been reading the forum as a guest for a while, finally got around to joining. I'm one of those who rode a lot as a young 'un but quit bikes in my 20's when I started raising a family. Went middle-aged crazy a while back and ordered me a new Road King Classic in 2001, been with her ever since. I retired last year and am planning to put some serious miles on my bike this year and next, so am trying to learn as much as I can about her now. This seemed like a great site for it. I belong to a couple of sports forums but this is my first Harley one. My two biggest passions are Harley Davidson motorcycles and Alabama football. In fact my license plate reads TIDEHOG. Oh yeah, Pleasure Island is the area along the Gulf Coast that includes Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. Little Cities, Big Beaches.
