Ok...was in the market for a motorcycle after selling off my hd sporty 12 years ago. I was going to buy a smaller bike but instantly liked the high ball. Rode it and loved it, but i didnt want to pay that much for a new bike and after a long time of looking i stumbled across an ad and snatched a 2013 high ball. The previous owner was very cool and he did some of the upgrades i wanted (although he lowered it so i am now looking for stock parts to raise it back up again). But overall, i am ecstatic about this bike. I have ridden it 2 x since i got it and when i return from this trip, it is going out for a much longer ride.
