Not exactly new to the motorcycle industry. Started riding 1964 and wrenching in 1968. Learned a lot working on ricers. Finally found a HD that tripped my trigger. She's a red 2013 Softail Slim. Bought her on December 8 2012. Customized her myself. Admittedly I was a little intimidated as this is my 1st HD. Bought the shop manual then bought the bike. and figured it all out. Thanks for the add.
