New rider is South Dakota

I am the very proud owner of a new to me 97 Royal Star!!! It was purchased for me by way of my lovely wife for my 32 birthday. I don't know much about the bike to be honest, 45,000 miles on the bike, rides like a dream! First bike, first time rider, and since I have gotten the bike it's been my daily driver! Rain or shine love love love the bike! Just want to know everything about it!

About me:

Work full time as tech support at an online company for car dealers.

Been married for 4 years

Have 2 boy

One medically complex and the other was born at 27 week.

2 dog

And am currently going back to school to get my degree in computer programming . Busy to say the least!
