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 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.

Welcome! I'm new to riding as well, only riding a few months. Like you I just love it! (I mean why doesn't everyone ride a MC) You will find this to be a great forum. I've gotten a lot of help and advice and I just don't feel so alone. It's like having a guy next door with the same bike as you but with lots of experience (and a weird sense of humor).
Enjoy that bike!

Introducing Black Betty

This is her: Black Betty. Not a great picture, I'm sorry. I need different saddlebags, too, but not sure what I want yet. Any suggestions would be great!

Good point. I'm selling my HK 3" big straights Exhaust once I get my new ones put on. I agree about the fairing I look everyday and try to decide how am I coming up with the money
