New to me 06 Roadliner

Hello,

Brought home a 2006 Roadliner today. I've been riding sport touring bikes for the last few years but my knees have been unhappy with the riding position. I decided to add a cruiser to the stable this year. I rode it about 70 miles home from where I purchased it and it was a pleasure the whole way.

I had a 99 Road Star several years ago and it was good but this Roadliner is better. Looking forward to many happy days on the Tennessee back roads this year. Looking forward to learning about this new bike with help from this forum.

Christey

Based on the one I owned. Your mileage may vary.

did you have problems with your Road Star? I have the impression there are no design issues with them.

Planning on getting a bike bigger than my 650 for road trips, have not decided what to get yet.
