Newbie here.

Hi all. Last year I bought a 2008 Roadliner. Had bikes all my life and with a few minor modifications it is now a beast. Best ride I've ever owned.

you must give it a beastly name

when I went to look at my 2000 Royal Star last fall the previous owner said "there she is, she's a bear"

a few weeks later while making a U turn and not paying attention, I rolled it on its crash bar on its side. No damage to the bike and I was ok. Really took some adrenaline to pick it back up, without dropping it over on the other side. Big, strong, heavy, fast, tough...

thats when I named it Ursa (Latin for she-bear).
