    I'm on my way tomorrow to pick up a 2011 Road King.

    This will be my first Harley.

    Started in September 08, after a 40 year lapse, with a used Suzuki C50, 800cc. Nice bike, but too small. Still, excellent choice for learning to ride all over again. 4000 miles in three months.

    Traded it in on a new Kawasaki Nomad. Put 18,000 miles on it. Wanted to trike it, but the factory burned down after I placed my order and they aren't re-making that mold. Guess not enough demand for Nomads.

    Finally decided to look at a Harley. Took a test ride on a Road King, fell in love with it, and made the deal.

    I'll have it for about six weeks, probably, and then it will be converted to a trike.
