3 months ago!
I had been thinking of upgrading my 85 K beemer when the wife and I decided to see what the local Harley dealer had on the floor. There was a red Dyna sitting there - screaming "pick me, pick me" at us so I took it for a test ride.
The next step was the hardest. I had to do the bartering business with a straight face. I didn't want to let the dealer know how much I wanted this bike.
Once you go Harley - you never go back.
I was a pillion at 17 a mate had an 86 wideglide first of the evos last of the four speeds I used to sit out the front just look at it admiring all the chrome we went from pub to pub did about 300ks between melbourne and mayborough and back. Next was morgan & wacker demo rides at bike week on the gold coast I think i rode every bike in the fleet.......er.......... twice. Then bought my first one a 00 heritage in 05 I did 3000 ks in the first 2 weeks not going anywhere special I had to buy a face mask because my mates said i looked to goofy riding around with a smile that big, I did a total of 29000 ks in 6 months I did my honeymoon on the bike rode from gold coast to melbourne down the great ocean road back through central vic through dubbo zoo( very cool you can actually ride around the zoo from animal to animal) and then back to gold coast. I will always love harleys it is a passion that will never die( I even named my son Harley) thats my story.
My First Harley ride was in '98' on a '96' Fatboy. It was me mates, he told me to take it for a descent ride, I did for about an hour & 80k's.
It was love on first ride. Still to this day I reckon it was better than me first root. Love'm that much now I want a second one.
