I have been considering trading mine for a somewhat lighter bike. Haven't been
looking yet, because if I breathe a word of it, David will not rest til we go buy one.
He got the softail to help my back, because the 1200 and sportie both hurt my
back.

The color spectrum is amazing now....so will be peeking on the Harley sites to see
what I can find....

sometimes it looks red, sometimes, purpleish, sometimes black, it changes in the light and really is pretty. The Sporty is a beautiful blue.

I love red bikes...also purple and blue and............well, you get the picture...

My husband had a silver dyna, always had people challenging him to race...
then some unlicensed, uninsured, jerk pulled in front of him and wrecked it...
fortunately David was able to hold on, and just bounced off on his knees...
But mad......oh dear.....

Just added our pic. It is in the Dyna family and it is Blackened Cayenne color. very pretty. Hubs just had new exhaust put on it because the new Harleys are too quiet for me! lol. Our 2009 Sportster is louder and he just took the Switchback in to Harley today so the new ones would cover under the warranty. I don't ride yet, but am going to take a class and learn so for now I ride in back! The Switchback is cool, because you can change it from cruise to touring in seconds by taking off the saddle bags and or the windshield. Also, we got the quick release sissy bar too so it could be removed if he wanted to. Today he removed them. He went riding with some buddies. Summertime fun!

Welcome aboard, Kim!

I am not sure what a Switchback is but I will visit a Harley website and find out.

I also started out on an 883 Sportster. It was a good light bike to learn on. At least I
could pick it up with no problem.

We are at a turning point here though.....husband hasn't been feeling well, breathing
issues, so the bikes have been sitting for a year and I have been trying to convince
him to just sell them....the cost of the payments is a lot of money as is the insurance,
but he keeps hem-hawing around....personally if you are not riding, I don't see the point
in cluttering up the garage with them.

Can you tell I am having a bad day??? LOL

Good morning and again welcome to our Team!

My wife started out with a Harley-Davidson Sportster - an 883 - 1993 883. That was back when the engines were not rubber mounted and that engine just shook the bike - wicked!

K, welcome aboard. I live in Alabama now, but you said central Illinois, so
how close to Effingham are you? I lived in Chester for many many years.
My kids are still in that area close by....

Glad to hear you guys wear helmets.....we have a speaker system on our helmets also.
This winter has been a little strange around here, and we have had the bikes in the
garage all winter.

HEY RE......we got a dukes mixture last night and this morning.....rain, sleet, snow, sleet,
and cold, AND to add insult to injury, at 215AM our burglar alarm went off.....so both of us
jump up and by the time David got to the hall by the control board pad, the security was on
there wanting to know if we needed the police(NOT) anyway we don't know what set it off
unless his dog bumped his chair and moved it. We went thru the whole house room by
room, thankfully no intruder....needless to say, I couldn't go back to sleep, ....

Catch all ya'll later,
DarleneK

We did get somewhere between 10 and 12 inches of snow last Wednesday and tonight we are supposed to get some more snow. This is winter! And this winter has been colder than most have been lately and the heating bills reflect this.

We went to the dealership, Seacoast Harley-Davidson in North Hampton, NH for our HOG Chapter LOH winter chili cook-off. We tasted the 12 chili entries and some were hot to mild and were good.. On our way home we stopped along the mighty Merrimack River to catch a view of some bald eagles that have come to our area to feed off of whatever they feed on in this area since the rivers north of here are all frozen solid. We did think we caught sight of one eagle.

@REJOHSON3 - no CB's. We do have helmets with communication devices for long trips, but for most trips we just wear half shells. We just discuss the details before we take off and only talk whenever we stop.

Hope you didn't get as much snow as predicted. It's supposed to warm up to above freezing later this week, but we still have a lot of snow (and of course salt) everywhere. We usually don't get the bikes out until the salt is gone so we don't have to clean it off.

I'm so ready for warm weather and riding again. Riding is my way to unwind and reduce stress. I hope that spring comes early!

Good morning, K. You both ride your own bikes. That is great! Do you both have CB radios so you can communicate while riding? I know that the Road King does not come with a CB but some are installing the CB equipment to allow them to keep in touch as the journey moves.

We have had a lot of snow here in Massachusetts this winter and it has been mighty cold too. We have a storm approaching us now and are supposed to get about a foot of snow today. And then again Sunday. We are so lucky. Our bikes have been quiet too long.

Good the hear from you! Ultra Classic - very nice! Do you ride with others that have the CBs and stay in touch while on the ride? I know that my wife and I probably communicate more while on a ride than we do when we are sitting next to each other in the car.

Good morning REJOHNSON and thanks for the wonderful welcome.

Yes, we're both on the Street Glide for now. We try to go for an extended ride every weekend when the weather is good. However, summertime in Central Florida sometimes makes that tricky.

Yeah, over the years, I think I've tried 'em all, but I'm kind of stuck on HD! The only other bike I would consider now is maybe an old pre-unit Triumph, if I could find one in reasonably stock condition.

WooHoo! Now I have to figure out how to do this. And I know that it can be done. Another challenge.

And there are no planks to be walked either. By the way at the last Maine HOG Rally last weekend our North Hampton, NH Seacoast HOG Team beat the Maine's team at their own game - a plank walk or it was called a "Down East Ski Race" with two 12 foot four X fours with a rope in a hole every foot that 12 members got on and walked in unison for 60 feet. We have always lost to them but we practiced through the winter and we bested them at their own game and won the "big" trophy. I could not be there because I was putting on a big party for my wife for her 70th birthday.

Now to see about making some big changes - I hope things go easy and well making this change.

Well, thank you for asking! Do you know that statement you have permanently installed in your posts - You will always be what you have always been. You know, that one. I never asked that question when I took on this job - the one about what will be my responsibilities; I only said to myself, "what have I done now." Your responsibilities will only be what you set for yourself as goals like you have done all along. Being here and checking in with what is going on, I guess, could be a major goal or responsibility. Some things I have not done would be to set forth some challenges to the Team Mates. Problem is here is that we have over 400 members and around 20 to 25 are somewhat active. Some members we cannot reach because they do not toggle the right switches to let us into their SPARK PAGE which may be planned or unplanned, I do not know. Keep thinking about it anyway.

Darlene, she has not posted for over a year now. I have written to her a few times and no response. I could probably remove her name but I was hoping that she would do it herself. Do you have any interest in being a co-leader of this Team?

My first Harley was an 883L sportster, 2nd Harley was 1200L sportster which I was just
getting used to and husband surprised me with a 2010 Softail, and he then traded his
Dyna for a 2010 Heritage.....we and H.D. bank own them....lol 2 more years and they are
ours and I think we will keep what we have.

RE, when is the shindig in Milwaukee????

My wife rides a 2007 Street Glide with a CB radio. I ride a 2008 Ultra Glide Anniversary Model. We are already making plans to attend the 110th Anniversary Party in Milwaukee next year. How about you or anyone else in our Team?

I just posted some pics of my '53 in the photo page of my profile. I also have a few other interesting bikes in my garage (including a cafe racer built using a Harley 1200 sportster engine).

Hmmm.. a lot of newer bikes on here.

I ride a 1953 FL Panhead chopper. Kickstart, suicide shift (foot clutch, hand shifter behind my leg), open belt primary, 21" front wheel (no front brake), narrowed triple trees, handmade stainless components (mid-controls, brake and clutch, etc...). Tiny frisco'd tank and narrowed fender with custom paint. The bike has been featured in a few magazines both here in Canada and the States. We just rebuilt it over the past winter. I will add a picture of it to my profile photos page.

I have also built a few other bikes as well.

Hi all! New to the group here, but on SP since January.
I got an 883 hugger for a wedding present from my s.o. in May. He has an Ultra Classic with all the bells and whistles that we ride as well.
S.o. is a workaholic so we aren't out too much but we ride when we can and dream when we can't!
Our town had its first ever bike night last week and we had over 200 despite the rain showers!

Welcome, WANDA! Glad to see you visit our forum. You have joined with a great group of people on a weight loss journey. My wife and I both ride Harley-Davidsons. She has a Street Glide and I have an Ultra Classic. We drove out to Milwaukee two times; first time was for their 100th anniversary and the second time was for their 105th. We have visited their new museum too.

Hi Everyone, new here. We have a 2003 100th anniversary Heritage Classic Softail . Black with a lot of added chrome. I'm a passenger, not the rider, and I'm OK with that. :) Weather here has been pretty sucky so haven't been out much yet this year. Did attend a bike blessing event yesterday and it was great to be among all those bikes and riders.

I have a 2009 Heritage Classic. It's tricked out with a fairing/stereo, and a rear trunk just like the big baggers. I love it.

We had some sand here also, but with all the rain last week, it is pretty much gone.

It's a sure sign Spring has come at last as the bulbs push their little shoots out of the ground towards the sun. It will be warmer soon .... I just know it! emoticon

We rode in the car today, Sunday, 27 March to Boston to visit the Boston Science Museum and it was a great take. We sat and watch a documentary feature on tornadoes that occurr in Tornado Alley in the Mugar Omni Imax Theatre which is a huge oval screen with a tremendous sound system.

With winter still holding on to our lives here in this area I am sitting on the saddle of my stationary bike and doing all the work.. We are so looking forward for that first good ride of the spring. Maybe we ought to call it the daffodill ride or the crokus ride because that is what is shooting up out of the cold ground right now and they will be blossoming soon.
