Talking New 2 forum, New 2 Roadliner

Hello, & thank you for allowing me to join your forum. I feel like a pretty lucky guy. Times got a bit hard & I sold my 2006 Kaw 1500 Classic to clean up some credit card debt. I have a son with Down Syndrome & he needs me more than me working too much to afford extras.It looked as if I may never be able to afford a bike again when I get a call from my brother in law. He tells me that he has been given a promotion to the level of a vice president at Caterpillar & that he had to move to Singapore. Short of it? He GAVE me his 2006 Roadliner with 8205 miles on it FREE OF CHARGE.
Can anyone believe this? I am in shock & awe! Beautiful black Cherry with Speedstar long drags, rider backrest , bags, quick release screen, HR1 risers , battery tender etc. What a machine! My old Kawi was smooth & a great bike, but this roadliner kicks a$$ & takes names later. Any way thanks for reading & teaching me about my new bike

Welcome to the forum man. Now to be an official member of this place you need to post some ppics of that ride . Once this is done, we will start ribbing you even more just cause we're like that . Don't be shy to post often, ask questions and rib to your hearts content. This is a fun place where we like to kick back and not take ourselves to seriously.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Welcome to the 4M Mr. V2WIN.

I vote your intro to be the best ever! I know you'll enjoy that bike forever and almost as much as time spent with your son. I'm sitting here hoping that he can enjoy being your passenger on the new scooter. I bet your brother would cherish a pic or two with your son smiling proudly sitting on that beautiful bike.

Well I have to say when I first started reading I thought this was a scam post - but I felt badly by the time I finished.

Great intro - and welcome to the group!

Can't wait to see some pics.

Well, St. Louis is only 300 miles south of Chicago so you're not that far from me!
