Hello all,

Just joined up to FULLY educate myself on everything I need to know before I make my first bike purchase. Looking forward to reading through the threads and gaining a wealth of knowledge before I take the plunge.

Yes, I already know how to ride.....just have never "owned" a bike of my own. The time has come!

J~

Welcome to the forum from Virginia. Plenty of good folks and good information here.

Definitely take a rider course. Two options depending on your area: MSF Basic Rider Course or HD Rider's Edge Course. Well worth your time. Just knowing how to operate a motorcycle is not enough.

Welcome to the forum. Exciting time huh? MSF course, worth repeating. I have to take it every 3 years and learn something new every time.

Do you ride 2 up? Have a specific model in mind?

Yes, very exciting.....really looking forward to joining the clan for sure.

Not only will I be taking the Basic Rider Course, I will also take the Pre-Basic Course. Just for the simple fact that it's been a while since I've ridden, and I want to have all the confidence in the world before I venture out into the wild.

I'm 95% set on the Sportster Sevety-Two with the Forty-Eight as a second choice.

Thanks for the kind welcome everyone! :thumbsup

Welcome from Phoenix, AZ! I was looking at the 72 and the 48 before making my purchase recently... Then i saw a 09' Fat Bob with 3700 miles sitting in the used section that i ended up buying. I really like the looks of the 72 and 48 but the Fat Bob fits me like a glove! Best of luck making a tough decision!
