Millennial on a Harley

Hey everybody. I’m a young guy just got my first Harley this year, It’s a 73 Sportster. Hoping to talk with y’all and learn some things and maybe even meet some riders local to my area (NE North Carolina)

Welcome to the forum from Connecticut.

Ironheads are cool, don't see many on the road anymore.

Don't be a fool like me and let her go for a newer or bigger bike,
I had a 74 and regret selling her every day.......

Never... Mine has been a hand-me-down in the family since it was new, aggravates the hell out of me since it’s like pulling teeth finding parts but the thing is really awesome

Welcome, Erik. Hope you pass the test of time around here. (It can get brutal.)

I dunno if I could ride a right-side shift.

My mother had a 74 ironhead when I was a kid. I remember being in elementary school and thinking that thing was so cool, used to love being on the back of it.

Anyway, welcome. You're on probably the best forum for learning, lots of guys here know their stuff, and they're not jerks about questions. Well, as long as you're not a jerk about your questions, ha ha.

Congrats too on your first Harley.

You've got to play the hand that you're dealt, and sometimes life deals you a losing hand, well then you're a loser, and you have to deal with it.
