New bike

Bought a new bike last week. It’s not a Yamaha, but I decided to share with you guys (I still feel like a part of this awesome community). Don’t want to steal Keith’s post about his new “addition to the family”. I posted a couple of pics there and feel bad now, my apologies, Keith!

Anyways, traded in my 2013 RK for the new 2019 Road King Special and named her “blue shot”. Hopefully, I will be able to fix her super quiet stock exhaust before our rally next year (you better check 2019 Southeast regional forum meeting thread right now! Lol)

Ride safe, brothers and sisters!

No apologies necessary there Nurteaff!
Thatís a great looking bike and we know youíre not leaving us. I wanted the thread to be an open one for anyone thatís added another bike to their stable, heck our new addition is a Suzuki, and not a Yamaha, but the price was right and I know the previous owner.
Anyways, no matter what you ride, the 2019 Southeast Regional rally is happening and weíre fully expecting everyone to be there, right members?

Thank you! Windshield offers less wind protection than the stock one on my previous RK, but the style and the look of the bike worth some comfort sacrifice IMO.

Btw, me and my wife took a class with local police officer last Saturday. That was his personal class and he taught us some of those low speed exercises that you can see when watching police motorcycle precision riding competition. I was able to make tight circles and figure eight and scratched floorboards at the end of the class, it was awesome!
