new from indiana

Im a new member. I am 30 and just got my first Harley. This is my third bike so been riding a while. I traded my classic corvette for my 2000 Electraglide. It has 28,000 miles on it now. Ive had it a month and already put 2500 miles on it and planning a trip to the tail of the dragon on the 4th. Ive alteady changed the back tire and changed primary oil today and plan on an oil change tomorrow. Well thats a little bit about me and just wanted to say hey I'm new!
