I recently joined because this web site is user friendly. I just bought a 06 Electra Glide Std. This is my first Harley. I have always rode Japanese bikes. I like my new bike and I am beginning to get used to what I call a "rough idle." Metric bikes have a much smoother idle. However, now that I finally have a Harley, I would never go back to another brand. I belong to the local HOG Chapter and having people to ride with is the way it should be.
