I recently purchased a 2013 HD FXDC used (Vivid Black). Not my first bike but my first Harley. I have been riding since I was 11 years old, starting with small Hondas and owned a few smaller street bikes and dirt bikes in my late teens and early adulthood. I sold my last one when I got married and went without for about 22 years. I got back into Motorcycle riding about 5 years ago with a Suzuki C50 Boulevard and then a Kawasaki 1600 Vulcan Classic.

I am really enjoying the FXDC. It handles much better than the Kawasaki and seems more responsive. I have been wanting a Harley for a long time but didn't think I could afford one. Mine came with a Windshield, Engine Guard, Floor boards and Leather windshield bag. I have since added a detachable docking set up for a Back rest, Luggage rack and added a Sundowner Seat for longer rides but I will keep my stock seat for local rides as it sits lower and looks better in my opinion.

I mainly use the bike for pleasure only as I cannot use it for work and have a truck to drive on a daily basis. I ride mainly 50-100 miles at a time, taking rides in the country. Luckily, we have a great number of beautiful winding roads near by which I can just go out and release some stress. I want to make some longer rides in the near future when the weather permits.

I have been lurking at this Forum site since purchasing the bike and have learned a lot about my bike. I hope to be able to meet some other like interested friends and have a source to refer to when I have questions on my bike.

Thanks to all for the kind welcome!

2stangs8689: When is the Meet and greet being held? Eureka Springs, AR would probably be about 5-6 hours away from me but certainly doable.

AZ DesertDweller: I lived in AZ for 30 years from early 70's to early 2000's, mostly in Mesa and Chandler. I just got back from there yesterday visiting my family. I miss it but it must be a challenge riding the bikes there now with all the traffic.

MadMack: I will post some pictures as soon as I can figure out how to upload them from my phone. I need to figure out how to post an Icon photo as well.

I look forward to contributing to this forum and helping others when I can as I have been helped.
