I'm new here and new to the bike scene. my last kid just moved out so i can buy toys for me now. I bought a 2005 XL883 and just ride for fun. I hav'nt been on a bike in 30 years. This bike is a blast to ride and it sure turns heads. You guys seem to know just about everything about harleys, so maybe you can get me up to speed. Look forward to chattin with you guys and gals.

It was running rich with the stock pipes to. I think the guy i bought it from just bought the carb and put it on himself.
