New bike....new member

Hello all and greetings from LA (lower Alabama). I am a retired military guy and have been riding for over 50 years. For most of those years I seem to have moved back and forth between BMW and HD. The last FLTR I had was a 2005 model. I picked up a new black 2019 FLTRXS this weekend and I have to say that this bike is just amazing! It would be difficult to overstate how impressed I am with this motorcycle. I can’t wait to get this thing out on some extended road trips.

A few weeks ago while doing some research on the new sharks I happened to discover Roadglide.org. It seems like a great Forum and a fantastic group of riders. I have already learned a lot from you guys and I look forward to joining the conversations.

Congrats and welcome to the tank from north Florida! Thank you for your service! A lot of former military members here... retired myself in 2004.

So many non-military like me who remain grateful to all of you who have served to benefit this great country. You have earned great respect. I, too, have owned a number of Harleys, even a BMW, and have just never enjoyed any of them like I do my 2017 RGU, my first shark. This is a very good group you have joined, welcome from Kansas.
