New guy from Illinois

Hi All, I brought home an 1100 Classic this weekend, and I am hooked!! the last time I rode a bike was 25 years ago, and I am amazed at the way this bike rides, hell it almost drives itself

Thanks to all of you for the great information in this forum! I can see now that I will be spending a lot of time here
