I am a bad influence. lol.

Told my friend 3 years ago. Buy a Roadglide. This was to be his first harley. And he wanted the dream he always had. Ultra Limited. He bought the 16 as a leftover. Killer deal from my friend at the dealer. Last few year kept telling him ride mine. He wouldn't. Said it would be too expensive. Well the Red and Silver 19 has been on his mind at my dealership. Been telling him. Same deal. It's a 19. They want it gone. He just bought his wife a freewheeler last week. I told him. Now's the time. And when I bought mine Wednesday and gave him my opinion of the 19 compared to my 16. Well. He called the dealer and worked out another killer deal. We're stripping his 16 Limited tomorrow for him to get his 19 RGU. 114". Hes already asking what parts to buy and making an appointment for the fairing exchange to do his inner fairing. Lol.

Cant wait until he rides it and sees. Another convert.

At least your influence will make him a happier and not just a poorer rider! LOL!

When you are passionate about something you can't keep it to yourself.

When I was in the prime time of my riding I influenced a lot of people to buy their first motorcycle. I had local dealers giving me gift cards for making the sale and offering me part time work.

As soon as I finish this coffee, I am going for a ride!

I rode into work and when he seen it and just showing how fast the new GTS loads everything he got excited. Then I explained the power difference and the ride he got even more excited. Hes on 3rd shift. He has to go home and nap then go to my place and put his on my lift to finish pulling his parts off. When my SE shocks show up we're putting mine on his Ultra with his quick detachable tour pack mount. He'll have an RGS next week. Lol.

I've been offered a job in parts and sales there. But I'm not ready for a pay cut just yet. Sales not so much. That's a loss of vacation time. Parts counter. Ya. That's a big pay cut.

Enjoy your ride. I have 4 hours work and I'm out.

I thought I would stop by the dealer and see if they had a '20 low rider in white with the red and blue stripe on the floor. I am so out of the loop with work trips that I did not realize today was the "Trail of Tears" ride! I almost didn't make it out of the dealership before the parade of bikes started pulling in, and no low rider to look at.

I did burn through 5 gallons of fuel though so it was a good morning and the temps didn't get unbearable until I was about 20 miles from home.

O know my friends wives have told them no when they said they were going with me to the dealer. And when we're out together they listen to what I'm saying. Lol.

Wicked Red and Silver. In the showroom it didnt really pop. But in the sun. Damn. Nice paint.
