Default Hello from upstate NY

Two years ago, I decided that i wanted to join the motorcycle world. I took a rider course locally and got my license. I spent the first summer riding friend's bikes. Needless to say, I was hooked. Last spring, I purchased my first bike, a 2007 Honda Shadow. I proceeded to put almost 8000 miles on the Shadow. This winter I started to look for a bigger bike. I narrowed my choices down to American made bikes. I looked at a new HD Streetglide and a new Victory Cross Country. Once the wife gave me the go ahead to buy something new, I went to the local Victory dealer and put a deposit down on a 2014 Cross Country 8 Ball. Just waiting for the weather to change so I can bring the new ride home.
