I'm not new to riding HDs but I am new to twin cams. I rode a 2005 Sportster 1200R for several years while working for the Army in South Korea. I bought a 2006 Night Rod and had a great deal of fun riding it and drag racing all the squids there. After returning to the States in late 2010, I spent a year without a bike, but when the new FLD Switchback appeared in my dealer's showroom, I had to have it. I'm now very happy with it and am riding almost every day. I love the new 103. I had the dealer upgrade it with a Stage 1 kit and really love the extra power. The only thing about that is I miss the speed of the Night Rod.
