Howdy from CT-land .... !

Hey, folks ... Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays !

New to the message board, but not to motorcycles. Have had a handful of HDs over the years ... Sporty, Fatboy, several Baggers, too. Many with lots of motorwork done by a custom engine builder friend of mine. Low compression stroker EVO motors.

Been on the 'darkside' for a while with several Hondas, Kawa Ninja 1600 and some sport tourers. Still have 3 bikes. Try to ride year 'round if the roads are clear. I've got heated gear on one of my bikes, so I ride down to around 32*F.

But ... but ... I'm about to pull the trigger on a Street Glide. Not sure if it'll be a 2012 dealer demo, or a new SG. Either way, I'm sure I'll need to do something to make more power in the bike. Just started reading the various forums regarding upgrading 'stuff' to get me where I'd be happy. I figure I could live with around 90 hp / 95 tq. We'll see.

Anyway, way toooooo much info for the "howdy, folks" area ....

I'm up here in New England .... CT-land. Looking forward to more reading and posting.

Looks like some snow north of Amarillo ... we got an inch here last night. A "white Christmas", eh. I hope it goes away.
