Hello from whats left of Binghamton, NY..

Long haul trucker Mike waving a hand to the group..

Started out on sportbikes back in 1985 (one year out of high school) been riding ever since...Recently sold off the last of the fast bikes for a Concours 14...Added a Big Dog K9 last spring and instantly became hooked on the low end torque the S&S motor and the sound of thoose big radius pipes.....well ya know

Looking to swap off the Concours for a Road Glide tomorrow at Performance HD in Syracuse..At 6'8" I figure the RG is my best shot at getting on a HD comfortably.....shall see !!


Peace.. :D

Binghamton..

over taxed, over governed, and over regulated.......Uncle Andy banned fracking forever which would have meant much needed jobs for the southern tier....Honestly guys its a run down ghetto, full of NYC problem children who have relocated....Downtown is disgusting but the new mayor is hard at work rebuilding streets and knocking down all the run down buildings....Job market is an absolute joke.


No worries on Binghamton U as its in Vestal which is still a really nice and safe suburb..

feel free to pm me if you have any questions Mike, RG is the perfect bike to set up for a tall rider . Pick a seat that sits you back a little, lots to chose from. Many like le pera's maverick daddy long leg & harley tall boy for two up, I have a tall boy for two up and for solo riding I have a Roland Sands Boss (love this seat). also check out tallboyscycles.com for floorboard relocation brackets (I have these) I also added kiryakyn's 1" forward and 1" out brackets. Also check out softbrake.com for extended brake levers (I have the +2") then look at extended shift levers. I like Walters workshop , it matches stock very well so you can keep heel shifter if you chose to. Hope this helps a little, Road Glide is the bike you want :)

Welcome from Fort Mill, SC. You will love the Roadie once you get it personalized for you. Right seat, hi-way pegs, and bars and you will be good to go.
