New guy post
hi all, Recently came on and wanted to say hello. I'm a newer rider, 3 years but in the old guy age bracket for most probably. 56 and climbing steadily.
Started with a Yamaha V Star I got from a buddy. Brought it home even though my wife said "Hell no, you are not going to start riding motorcycles". Hehe.
had it two weeks and knew I needed a bigger one with a 6th gear. Started mt quest for the perfect for me bike and a year later had it narrowed down to a HD Street Glide or a Vic Cross Country. after taking all things I could think of into consideration, including Vic being shut down I picked up my 13 XC and have been loving it ever since. have a few mods so far including RPW pipes, Lloydz timing wheel, Lloydz PCV and air intake. Scheduled for a Dyno Oct. 6th.
I'm appreciative of all I can learn from the experienced posters on here and look forward to meeting more of you, especially if you are in my neck of the woods and want to get out on rides. I'm into my Vic for the long haul. If I have my way she'll be my last bike unless I'm able to pick up another Vic to add to my stable. I love my buddies Vegas. It's a blast to ride so i'm open to one of those as well as a Highball. I just like the way they look and wouldn't mind a steel frame bike to ride on shorter distances.
