another newby

saying hello to all members and harley riders. well it took me 30yrs to get, I've riding for about 33. 2013 road glide ultra. purchased on Saturday. after riding everything else, this is a whole new experience, one that I've been missing. now i'm hooked and can't seem to keep my wallet closed. dealer installed the Rinehart stage 1 exhaust and heated grips. having the road tec Gps and interface installed soon.

would like to upgrade speakers myself, but the fronts look kinda tuff.

road the bike home, 20 miles. soon as i got home i orderd the ultimate tallboy seat.
