I have had 2 Harley's, bought this one nearly 2 years ago now. Im getting on a bit and love speed, however 2 collapsed disks in my neck stopped me riding sports bikes, so now I have had to slow down a bit. The new breed of fuel injected Harley needs to be ridden to be believed. I will take on most bikes from a standing start, the only trouble is after 60 mph they have caught up and start to pass me. Thats OK I was starting to slow down any way! I can't be doing with the HOG members Sunday rides, over here, the look like a band of boy scouts and only drink tea and pop on their ride outs. I ride alone and love it! occasionally some close friends do join me, but lets face it when your on a bike you don't talk to other people while your riding do you? Personally, I want to go where I want to go, I want to stop when I want to stop and when I've had enough I head for the nearest pub or I park up at home and have several beers at the local!
