Default Sweet Freedom I love these motors!

Hello all,

Obligatory intro post from South Dakota.

I just picked up an 08 Hammer S. This is my 3rd Vic. It's hard not to keep coming back... they're just one of the best blank slates around.

Cheers!

Thanks!

I'm a big fan of your neck of the woods. It's on my shortlist to fly a cross country out that way.

If you mean Oregon, you gotta see our coast from Yachats (say ya-hots) south. Many say it's the most beautiful in the nation. We also have high desert, mountains and volcanoes.
So, where are you located?

I do mean Oregon. Bear with me while I remember how to reply correctly and do other simple tasks on a forum.

Yeah, it's been a while since I've been out there (maybe 2014?) but I've tried to ride different portions of the 101 over the years. The Oregon coast is really something. I just love that whole area.

I'm near Sioux Falls (MN border), so the target areas out here are really west to the badlands or east toward northern MN / Wisconsin Dells.

Cheers!

Welcome from the greater Minneapolis area. I'd say Hastings but most people won't know where that is.
