An Introduction!

Hey everyone! Well I am getting ready to purchase a new bike to me. About myself I have been riding for about 10 years. Been active duty Army for about 14. Anyhow the heart of the conversation.

Tomorrow I should be picking up a 2007 Yamaha Roadliner. It has 2200 miles on it, and looks like it just came off of the show room floor. Oh and here are some photos!

Thanks for the welcome! I should have the bike Friday! The first trip with it is going to be about a 60 mile trip from Clearwater FL through Tampa to Brandon. I am going to go out of my way a little and hit one of the bridges and just have a good time with it. Currently I have gone three weeks without a bike, and to be honest I have had some major withdrawals. I look forward to learning from you all and sharing my experiences as well!
