New Harley owner

What's up. Just dropping in and saying hi. Just picked up a 05 Harley road king last Friday. Got out over the weekend and put 200+ miles on her. By far the best and most comfortable bike I've rode and owned. 3 bikes in 3 years. The wife's starting to get a little upset with me. Oh well. Gonna be putting hard bags, upper and lower fairings, and apes on her over the next few months. Wanted a bagger so figured road king is a blank canvass and I can build what I want. Test rode kawi vaquero, Yama strat deluxe and my bike. By far the best of them all. ImageUploadedByMO Free1354565037.465404.jpg

Now the fun begins.

Beautiful bike! Welcome aboard from Texas!!
