Soon to be HD owner

Hi all,

I'm just getting ready to buy my first (used) HD. My best friend just talked me out of buying a Sportster but I had to stop short of his Softail recommendation due to money constraints. But I did take my first ride on a VROD, daaaamn, what a great bike. I am not getting the Sportster, but I have to think on the VROD

Retired paramedic, now an IT manager.

I just wanted to say hi!
