In 1983 I bought a 1977 Sportster. Damn thing would shake a turd loose if you werent careful. After a year of riding it I switched to crotch rockets until I retired from the Army in 2001. As a retirement gift to myself I bought a 2001 Softtail Springer (FXSTS). Sold it in 2004 and bought a 2005 FLTR. In 2010 I traded it in on a 2011 RGU. Also a few years ago I thought I needed two bikes so in 2009 I bought a 2007 FXDSE (CVO Dyna). First year of the 110 and nothing but problems so I went from bad to worse and traded it in on a Iron Horse Texas Chopper. If I wasn't getting in trouble with it from the law or mama I was wrenching on it. Finally got tired of two bikes in the stable and sold it. Now its just the RGU.
2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
Oh and its black because blacks faster.
Bought my first motorcycle at 12 yrs. old, had at least 1 every day of my life to present. Had a 47 Knucklehead my sophmore year in highschool, the next year I bought a bored and stroked 55 Panhead that was the fastest thing I had ever driven, paid 400.00 dollars for it. my senior year I bought a brand 69 Sportster because until the Honda 750-4 came out was the fastest stock motorcycle in the world.
Thousands and thousands of miles on a lot of bikes. I'm 60 years old now and I still have 14 or 15 motorcycles. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever grow up!
Bought my first bike in Oct. 2010 when I was 16
Bought my first Harley in February 2012
The roadglide is the best valentines gift I have ever got
Only have about 3000 miles on it since we have been busy making parts for the darn things
I am going to count the bikes my wife has had as well as they were part of the stable at one time or another.
