    I have been riding Honda Goldwings for several years when a friend with a FLH convinced me to try a new Harley. I have had Friends in the 70's and Early 80's that owned Harleys or (F.O.R.D.'s) thier experiences closed the door for me ever wanting a Harley. This year I took the plunge and Bought my First harley a new Ultra Classic,I've put 20,000 kms on it this Summer and I love It.This bike is much more comfortable to Ride than any of my Goldwings.

    Should have Done this sooner.

    Welcome. I too came to an Ultra Classic after riding Goldwings for years. I still have friends who ride Wings and razz me a bit for riding a Harley. Of course I razz 'em right back. I have to say, although I really liked the Goldwings I had over the years, I LOVE my Ultra. Enjoy your new ride!
