Cool Got my Bike!

I got my bike two days ago! Even I am surprised that I am was so taken up with it that I finally found time to post the news today!
Well, it's the Vivid Black colour and the cowl is off. I am panning on ordering a sissy bar from DS Brar, a fellow member on this forum. Have already ordered a Firebrand Loose Cannon 4" Slip on exhaust from the US. Will now have to wait for 3 weeks for its arrival.
Riding it around has been a pleasure so far. Plan to go for a long ride later in the day. The wife is equally excited and is fondly remembering our initial days after marriage, when we used to ride around on my Royal Enfield!
Will be posting pictures shortly and as regards mods, well..... Decisions, decisions! Am still trying to figure out, what all do I do? Am in no rush, but personalise it, I surely will!

Two full days before letting us know? That's downright unforgiveable. LOL Ride Safe.

Cool

Ok Guys, firstly apologies for the delay in letting you all know about my bikes arrival. Secondly, thanks for the good wishes. Really appreciate the same.
Yes, I am trying to figure out the bike, and I think am beginning to understand a lot of things about it already. For one, I need a tall boy seat! Secondly, it needs a bit of chrome to make it better looking. Third, I was actually stopped on the road by two guys who wanted a briefing about the bike and some pictures with it. Now I know what it means to be owning a HARLEY! Let me confess, it feels great!

No need to apologize. Glad to hear that you got it in. Now to suit it up with some accessories.

What are you planning with the chrome?

The chrome bits that I think needed are;
-The Handle bars, including the levers, rear view mirrors and all else that goes on them.
-The headlight and turn signals.
-The engine guard, if I put one.
-Luggage rack.
-The exhaust.
Any suggestion from you guys are welcome!

While I haven't been literally stopped by people wanting to know about my Street 750 there has been a lot of interest in it when I was stopped. That interest wasn't just by Harley rider either. It has been very well received by everyone during my limited travels (it's road days as a stock motorcycle are over).


I've owned many brands of motorcycles and there is something special about being a Harley owner. There is unquestionably a bond between all Harley owners that didn't seem to exist when I owned other brands and all motorcyclists do share a common bond. Of course there are the rare people that simply "hate all things Harley" but they're pretty rare.

You can also drop/remove the saree guard unless you plan on riding with a pillion rider who is going to wear a saree . I did that to mine after my last ride. I think I've stripped her of 3-4 kilos already.

Congratulations on your bike BTW and happy riding.
