Another new forum member here saying hello to everyone. I just started riding this year at the ripe old age of 41; I have been wanting to take the plunge for years and finally decided "the heck with it". I bought a Yamaha Virago 250 to learn on earlier this year (it is a great bike btw, serves its purpose well) and recently started itching for a larger bike. After quite a bit of hunting and researching, I traded in the Virago for a 2001 Sportster 883 this week. Lots of fun, good power...love it!
