Well I'm down to One bike.

Just a few minutes ago I watched the Valkyrie ride off with it's new owner aboard.

Man its so much easier trading bikes in. it sucks watching them ride away and your left with a hole in the garage.

But never fear there is something on the way to fill that empty space in the garage.

Ok, I'll le the cat out f the bag, a few weeks ago, I put my money down on a bike I always wanted growing up. I alwasy said I would get one by the time I turned 30, and since my 30th was in january it was time to reach that goal.

I ordered a 2004 Harley Electraglide Standard. Simular to this one only mines not the 100th anniversary since its a 2004.

Ya its about time. Ever since I was a kid I've wanted a harley, and even all these years when I was "supposed" to not like them, they have always turned my head. So it's time.

Thank god the Busa is still in the garage.

Hey Tony,
Nice bike, I've ridden them and they are great to put miles on. Welcome to the Dark Side

Hey Rick,
I think he can skip the chrome if he buys anodizing paint .. Hey wasn't there a thread on here awhile ago....
