New to everything!

Hi! That's right...I'm new to motorcycles and everything about them! Started riding in January. Bought 2008 Roadliner and love it! So I'm learning as I go and have to say, this forum is a bit intimidating for a newbie. I can't think of a thing I want to change on my bike yet but am loving the photo galleries and learning what everyone does/has done to their own bikes.

Welcome!

It's not what you do to your ride, it's what your ride does to you that counts!

Welcome Mandy!

The Liner is pretty much perfect off the showroom floor - so no need to change anything!

And that's one heck of a first bike!

If only we had a picture so we could see it too

Welcome Mandy. Roady for a first; talk about talk about pulling the trigger
I'm sure nothing can wipe that smile off your face. So share the smile with the rest of us and post a pic

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Welcome to the insane clown posse... If it matters much all I do is ride. I'm not a mechanic and these guys can help you do anything. Ask away we won't laugh at you. But we will poke fun of your short coming ( wait your not Canadian.. So you should be okay).
So why a roadliner to start ? You have a local group you ride with ?

My boss was going to loan me his Roadliner to practice on before I decided to commit to a purchase. He didn't ride much anymore. I didn't feel right borrowing it for months, so he made me a deal I couldn't refuse! There are some folks I ride with occasionally, but nothing formal.
