    Then sell that huge gas guzzling SUV and buy a MOTORCYCLE! They get excelent mileage, and you can't deny they're FUN!

    I would kill myself in roughly 4 minutes on that thing.

    Dare I say that if you ever got up the intestinal fortitude to get a ride on one, you wouldn't want to get off.

    Haven't you ever heard a Harley called a "Milwaukee vibrator"? :D

    Actually, the new TC-88 *B* motors that are in all softails are balanced. They're very smooth.

    It is a nice bike. It's a Road King Classic. But I'm partial to the Fatboy, which is what my avatar picture is of.

    Buy one for "fun" MtnBiker... :D

    Don't be so hard on yourself Bud. Most people that are first time bike owners take a Motorcycle Training Course and get a lot of benefit from it. Not to mention most states recognize these courses and will give you your motorcycle lisence upon successful completion.

    Actually Sandy, Pale Rider is right... once you get on one, you dont want to get off.

    I've never been on a bike until very recently... The guy I'm dating has a bike and has been bugging me for a while to go for a ride. About 2 weeks ago, I finally gave in and, after threatening bodily injury should I get hurt, and digging my nails into his sides for the first 10 minutes, I relaxed and had an awesome time. I've been on it at least a half dozen times since then and I cant wait to go again. There's no other feeling like it.

    The only bad experience was racing home to beat the rain, only to lose the race with about 2 miles to go. There's nothing like rain drops hitting you at 65-70 mph. They feel like little pebbles. (well, that and the huge bugs that meet their demise on some part of the body).

    We have a pretty big bike thing coming up in the end of June (its for all bikes, but the majority of them are Harley's) called "Thunder in the Valley".. I'd like to learn how to drive it by then... I'll definitely be posting some pictures from there and the Abate party (basically a big kegger party with about 500+ people).

    I see you have a pic of last years 100th Aniversary Edition Heritage Softail here. They made enough 100th Aniversary Editions and are still easy to find. I hope you get your bike DK.

    If no one has ever noticed before, there is a comradere among people that ride. It transends bike make, age, race, etc. I wish more things were like that.
