Just wanted to say hello. I only have a Buelle right now - only thing I could afford. Looking to get a Dyna or a Sportster here this spring sometime. I am in the Naperville Illinois area. May need some technical advice from time to time - but otherwise - seems like a nice forum. I will get a picture uploaded soon. Still figuring my way around. Anyway - Hello. Sandy.

I know - but the Buelle is giving me a backache honestly. Had it for two years. I wonder if a Dyna or a Sportster would be the best next step. Guess I need to go sit on some. Thanks for the welcome.

Welcome Sandy. Sportsters like the Buells are great looking sporty bikes but not very comfortable. If your looking for a less back breaking ride, checkout the Dyna's and the rest of the line up too.

Thanks everyone. KBOLsen - we neighbors? Nice bike. Glad to see a lady that can ride something that big and fancy. My little Buelle. LOL Seems the Dyna may be the way to go. Turning 45 - sad to be complaining about my back. Getting older..........LOL Thanks everyone for the warm welcomes. I will get my picture on here soon.

I had a car accident years back and I have some messed up discs. So sadly yes - at the tender age of 45 - I feel rather old getting done with a long ride on my Buell. Did go look at a few Dyna's today though. Again - thanks for the warm welcomes.

I just got rid of my Sportster and bought a Heritage Softail, and I love it. It is definitely a more comfortable ride. I had the Sportster for nine months, it was a great starting bike, but definitely not comfort for the long haul. Take a big step and buy yourself the Heritage, you won't regret it.

Carol - what scares me is that all bikes seem so much larger than mine. Well - because they are. Told I will have no problem adjusting to it. But they all just look huge. Heritage - they are neat bikes and I really like them. Thanks for the suggestion - I will check some out. Cool.....
