Greetings from Afghanistan!

Hey everybody! I have been ghosting around your forum now for a few weeks and finally decided to join. My name is Rob, I am currently serving a tour in Afghanistan wiht the Army, but will be returning to Chicago in January of 2012, God willing. I am a proud owner of a 2010 FLTRX, Vivid Black. Current mods are none, althought that will change here in a few weeks. I go home on leave in August, just in time to ride. There are several parts ordered for now, and will be installed while I am home. I have questions for the members of this forum concerning Bags, Fenders, sound Systems etc, butI figure I can prowl around first before I start asking. I'm looking forward to sharing stories and advice, and hope to ride with some of you in the future.

The very essence of leadership is its purpose. And the purpose of leadership is to accomplish a task. That is what leadership does–and what it does is more important than what it is or how it works.

Welcome to the forum SGT_ROB and thanks for your service. I'm currently in Paktya, Afghanistan and will go EOM in late August to take delivery of my new CVO RGU. You will enjoy this forum like no other, the shark tank will also help you spend that hard earned $$$$$ on your 2010 FLTRX. Take care and keep ya head down.

Welcome to the forums SGT_Rob!

Since I am very near your home stumping grounds(Elmhurst), I'd be proud to meet up with you sometime in August and ride some if you want.

I'll even buy your the first refreshment when we make a pitstop. We can ponder some of the upgrades you're considering.


Oopps: Just noticed you said in January 2012. Well...if we have a foot+ of snow, we'll just get together to ponder upgrades!
