Hey all. My name is Stacey. I'm fairly new to riding. Only been a couple of years but I ride every chance I get. I started on a Honda Grom, moved up to a Suzuki Savage, and now have a 2008 HD Sportster 1200 Low. Her name is Hendrix (after her color, limited edition Purple Haze). Her and I have some epic adventures planned for this year so I have out fitted her with new rear shocks (Progressive 412), new seat (Sundowner), New battery and battery cables, and New shoes a pair of Dunlop American Elites. Thank you for reading my long winded intro. Safe travels and keep the shiny side up!

Hello and welcome Stacey, from another (central) Californian.
Thank you. I know you have lots of beautiful riding roads out there in California. I hope to someday get out there with a bike. Looking to get Hendrix a garage buddy. Thinking about a Road King. I would love a bigger touring bike for those longer trips and keep the Sporty for the fun stuff.

It is way more comfy than the thin Badlands seat that I used to have on it. I have ridden for 400 miles in one trip and not had any issues.
