New to HD, Not to 2 Wheels

Hey All -
Finally bought my first Harley and it's almost like being new to riding all together. I've owned 14 bikes in my 65 years but always smaller imports. So I got an 02 Dyna Low Rider and it looks exactly like I always wanted my first Harley to look like. Sounds like it too since it's got a carb and aftermarket pipes. Lots of chrome all over and a beautiful red and silver color. Right now it has a small oil leak (of course) and a clanking noise that I believe may be a loose tank bolt at the back of the tank. I'm looking forward to learning all the Harley stuff that I'll need to know to keep this beast on the road and am grateful to the help that I'll be getting from the forums and my Harley buddies where I Ilive. Life is GOOD !!!

Welcome from KY and congrats on making your Harley down payment. Additional payments will be due for assorted mods, upgrades, bling, etc. But it will be money well spent. g
