Hi all,

I'm about to take the plunge into a 2006 Road-Star. Decision has been made and I'm awaiting the paperwork. By this time next week, I'll be riding.

I joined this forum because I am active in a few others for SCCA Solo II racing. I hope to be able to assist others and find information here about my new ride and will read a lot more than I post.

Thanks for the site and keep up the good work!

BTW>>>> I want to change my user name... How do I do that, I have a oops in it.

Welcome Angry Mexican Food!

Nice ride for sure. What color and options did you choose?

What is your riding background, and what prompted this purchase (other than the beautiful smell of spring in the air - which is reason enough for me )

I figured so much.... I was able to change my user name on another site but don't remember how the heck I did it. I guess that comes with age. Thanks for info.

Thanks.. It is red with maroon pin-stripes. Not sure what all it has yet... the ad stated ... 1700 cc , windshield, backrest, luggage rack, floorboards, heel toe shifter, engine guard, highway bars, new battery, voltage regulator and stater last year, clear title, guardian cover, cobra pipes, saddlebags, after market air filter

I know it is a Baron "Big Air" filter and not much more. Feels very spry.

As for my riding experience, I will call myself an experienced beginner. I owned several bikes during the first 25 years of my life, rode a few during the next 30 but nothing serious. So I am going to take the classes and try to stay away from other vehicles. Plans are to cruise with my sweety as often as I can.

Welcome to the familly. Great bike and it's even got the fastest colour on it . Don't be shy to post often, share you wealth of knowledge and post pics of that brute .

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

different sites have different code and rules. sometimes an administrator can just quickly make a change, but i don't think this site will allow it even if you request it

Welcome to the forum.. Last time I had Taco Bell it was more like mad tummy #2
I'm glad your getting a real nice ride. That red is a great color. Blood red is way better than smurf blue. Please feel free to ignore most everything I type. But lease do post often.
