Hello all. I'm Hawk (Shaun too, but only my future ex-wife calls me that). I'm days away from finally buying my co-worker's '99 Softail Custom (photo attached). This will be my first bike, so I figured I should start off right.

As for me, I'm a Native Texan first, Active Duty Air Force second. I'm stationed at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam, Hawaii for another 18 months or so then will hopefully be back on the mainland, maybe even somewhere with decent roads. In looking for info for my new baby, Google kept sending me here, so I figured I might as well join and just start here. I'm a total newb, so I'll thank y'all in advance for tolerating my ignorance.

Nothin like starting at the top! Some guys finish with a softail after decades of riding.

Yes take a riders class. Even long time riders will learn something new or break a bad habit.

You are in a wonderful place to ride for a year and a half. Enjoy

Thanks for the warm welcome. Definitely got the safety class done back in Oct and will do it again on the softail.
