New member and new Harley owner. Been riding since '83. First bike was a 1979 Suzy 425, traded it off 3 months later on a new '83 Honda V45 Magna.17 yrs later sold it and bought a '83 Aspencade. Kids are finished high school and mortgage was near nil, so time to buy a new one. The '09 Ultra was hands down winner for me over a new G'wing. I've been watching and researching opinions and recommendations on this forum and others on how best to look after my new baby. Great info and discussions on this forum and look forward to many (hopefully) trouble free years on my Ultra.
