Bring on the flames...

I know it won't get much love around here, but I picked up a new ride yesterday. I got it mostly for 2 up riding. Dealership was dealing to get rid of 2014s. It's the first harley I've owned and if it's too many headaches I should be able to sell it with minimal loss.

No flaming here, congrats on the new ride and hope you enjoy cruising around with the +1 on it.

Don't you have a 919 and a CBR in addition to this one? Don't expect flames here, but expect it from your new extended Harley family for riding non-American.

Some people just need to feel like they fit in somewhere, and buying a Harley is a quick way to do it.

Pay your money, you're a part of the flock, and everything that comes with it.

The market is dropping on Harley's quicker than anyone ever expected.

I'm not sure why you want to fool yourself into thinking you would ever be able to sell that bike for anywhere near what you paid for it.

"Minimal loss" for you on that purchase would be bankruptcy for many of us.

Typical of Harley owners, the denial of oh so many things.

Be sure to post a picture of you and your partner in your pirate outfits, that's always worth a smile.

If you decide that it truly sucks having such a huge, overweight bike with no power, www.aerocharger.com has a nice bolt on turbo kit with no lag for only about $5000.00 - you'll spend two or three times that for similar results without a turbo, if not more, and reliability - well, you did not buy a Harley because reliability was any concern, did you?

The guys are aerocharger said they put 30,000 trouble free miles on the test motor, it's worth considering.

Then again, maybe you've reached the point in your life where it is fun to just poke on down the road.

I always said when I get too old to ride, I'll get a Harley.

Oh, be sure to watch this, it's been required viewing for all of my kids:

Good enough?

Congrats on the new ride. It looks great.
Most people are cool. I ride with a group that consists mostly of Honda's, Harley's & Kawasaki's. We don't care what you ride as long as you ride.

Four wheels move the body ... two wheels move the soul.

I do still haves those too.

@steve
It is for poking around and taking road trips. If I want to tear it up I'll take out the cbr. And the 919 is an excellent commuter. I have been looking for a bagger for a while and although admittedly overpriced I kept coming back to the styling of this bike. It's not to "fit in", just what I was personally attracted to. When I get the pirate outfit I'll post it up here for, just don't hold your breath lol. And that sp episode is hilarious, I saw it a while back.

I know, the brilliance of "the lifestyle" drew you in like a bikers hand to a beer. You'll be selling the other motorcycles soon enough. You're going to need a lot of money to pay for the tattoo's and piercings, leather and lace.


You know I'm kidding, not sure everyone does, no worries.

What turned off the F6B?

With the right pipes, it would be way way up on my list, for when I grow up.....

And if you have any questions about the aerocharger, call them, ask for Corey as long as it's not too early in the morning.

Brad, the owner, is also very involved and accessible.

It's all good. Different strokes for different folks. When I rode a Wing, I never imagined I'd own a street bike like the 919. Now that I own one, I can't imagine going back to a heavy weight touring bike again. Never say never.

nothing wrong with owning a Harley as long as you stick to the "it's not what you ride but that your ride" mentality.

Brand loyal tards Are one of the things That I hate in our sport/recreation.

So carry on and enjoy having hard luggage I miss my FJR and Wing.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

Well I suppose that's relative, but yeah I felt like I got a good deal. Couple others I know with Harleys were shocked when I told them what I got it for.

Thanks to all for the compliments. Weather has been crappy for the last couple days but I've managed about 250 miles so far. Got caught in light rain twice and HEAVY rain once. Regardless, I am absolutely loving it. Riding down the highway with cruise control and radio on and legs stretched is a great feeling. With eveything being straight and flat around here, it will probably be my prefered leisure bike for the foreseeable future. Also, upon return the gf was smiling with no back pain so hopefully that means lot more 2 up fun.
