Gave in

Last night in the midst of frustation I bought a MadStad.
It will be here next week.
I really didn't want one but I'm tired of the buffeting and have little faith in anything else on the market being able to solve it.
If Harley would have had a new Road Glide out I would have bought a new bike. If the RG didn't suit me I would have most likely bought an Ultra.
If I get the present bike modifiyed to my liking I will most likely find no need to buy new again.

Once you get it dialed in it should make a world of difference for you. And you may even grow to like the looks!
