Ive been riding for 9 years. Currently own a 2015 Kawasaki 636 which is stupid fast and corners like a dream. I also still have my first bike I bought brand new, paid in full and taught myself to ride on a whim. A 2008 Kawasaki 250R. Im not ready to get rid of the 636 and will still ride it regularly, its just too much of a rush to let go of yet. The 250 Im keeping for my youngest daughter, shes got a couple years but she has claimed that bike as her own. Shes been riding with me since she was 5 years old and its a perfect bike to learn on, very forgiving and just enough power to learn the ins and outs of riding without being too dangerously fast for a beginner.
So I picked up a 2017 Iron 883 with the limited edition Hard Candy Red paint. Also had the dealer change the bars to the drag ones. I still like that more aggressive riding position. She was delivered to me 2 days ago and of course its snowing here in Indiana so haven't yet been able to take her for a ride. Nothing like looking at a new bike with zero miles and not getting to ride it huh? Sure does sound good tho...lol
Anyway, looking forward to seeing pics and learning more about sporties. I'm not much in a garage, I can change the oil and do basic maintenece on my bikes. But I do have great friends who will help me with the many plans to mod and upgrade her as my bank account allows. I paid cash in full so I'm a bet depleted at the moment and will have to wait. In due time. I'm just gonna be happy for a break in the weather and get to know my newest addition for now.
Attaching some pics. The 4th bike in one of the pics is actually my husbands, he just learned to ride this past summer and purchased a Vulcan S. He is actually kind of mad at me for buying a 3rd bike. He doesn't really have that riding bug, I thought maybe if he learned to ride he would finally get it. Just not the case unfortunately. Riding for me is an obsession, and since I'm not the typical woman obsessed with shoes and purses I think I should be allowed at least a few bikes. And I paid for them all by myself. The last pic is my daughter, polishing the 250. Ive taught her well.
Welcome. Sharp looking rides, really like the red in that Iron. Have a blast, the warm weather is just around the corner!
Great seeing your daughter taking an interest. My oldest daughter had a Sportster and picked up a Switchback last year.
I ain't gonna squash it and you don't need to wash it.
