    All of a sudden the bank I paid off got their paperwork under control and faxed the dealer what they needed to take the Sportster as a trade in. We thought it was going to take a couple of weeks but sometimes nice surprises happen.

    Three hours later I was riding home the bike I've wanted for months. A red hot sunglo 2009 Road King. I had a brief period when I considered the Electra Glide standard but I got over that.

    I'll post a picture when I get a chance but it may be a few days. Besides you all know what it looks like.

    The Sportster taught me that one.


    You betcha.


    HOBBIT:
    The best deal was getting full MSRP back on the Sportster I bought last spring.


    The sun is out the winds have calmed down and it's up to 45 degrees. Guess I better go for a ride.

    I'm excited when anybody gets a new bike... even if I do not personally know them. It is an unbelievable feeling... especially now with all the BAD NEWS WE HEAR EVERY DAY. Makes my day....:newsmile106:

    Some folks around here have been riding for a week or two. I got out again today for awhile but now it looks like the weather is going bad again. Maybe by this time next week it won't be too bad.

    Hang on. I used to live in the northeast. I remember what winter was like there. That's one of the reasons I left.
