    Hello all, I would like to take a moment to introduce myself as a new member. I am a licensed auto tech and a new rider having only had my motorcycle license since April. I am also new to Harley as I feel I have outgrown my first bike. I like the style of the 80's bikes so after some research I had decided as a new rider a FXR might be the right bike as a starter for me. I have acquired a near stock 85 FXRS all original with 2 previous owners. Very clean and aside from the screaming eagle baloney cut mufflers and noticing a screaming eagle ignition module upgrade I think the bike is near factory even down to the original paint. I look forward to seeking advice and possibly some info from the educated and knowledgeable members on this forum. Thank you.

    Welcome new member, from another new member! You picked one of the best bikes , FXR's to start with. Very good one learn on HD wise. Easy to ride ,handle, will hold some value, and should be easy sell when ready to move up. FXR's are a lot like Pans & Knuckleheads , not many around! Be safe, ride smart and don't be in hurry.
