    Hey Ya'll from Texas.

    Just bought my first HD. 2009 Ultra Classic Electra Glide. And I love it.
    Normally a Yami man, but after my wife and I took our 1300 tour from Greenville, Tx. to Mina Ar. and was detoured about 3 times due to the red river being closed because of flooding. What was supposed to be a few hour trip ended up becoming a 15 hr trip. When we got back, momma said go get a tour bike and Waala! My new/used Ultra classic.

    The bike is amazing, other than it's a little taller than I am accustomed to. I am 5'4". But even that I am getting use to. Lots of after market goodies for the long ride.

    Momma is ready for a long ride with the full back rest and tour seat that is also aftermarket. I did not realize a seat could be that comfortable!!.

    Any how, looking forward to many years in the saddle.

    Pastor Mike.

    :wbs From the Rocky Mountains. If you want it lower it can be dropped a couple inches. A different seat or having yours reworked will get you lower as well.
