Greetings from Tornado Alley
I currently live a little west of Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA.
I grew up on bikes. Got my first one when I was 6 years old (A Honda QA-50), and spent my first 2 decades on a series of dirt and street bikes (Rode a Honda CM-400E to High School as my "car"). I sold everything when I joined the army and never got back into it.
Recently, I was early for an appointment so decided to kill some time at the Harley dealer across the street and BOOM.. that bug came back hard! Within the week I scheduled a MSF rider course and it all came back.. even maxed the road test on day 2.
I decided to get a smaller, more nimble bike to get my "legs back" and the dealer had a poor little 2016 Street 5000 with miles on it. I picked her up for a steal (her name is Ruby) and I've put 2,000 miles on that bike in 2 months. It is a real joy to ride. returned from a road trip to New Mexico and WOW, what a place to ride.
I will likely move on to a Softail Heritage Classic (or maybe a Slim) in the next year or so, but I think Ruby will always have a place in my heart, and in my garage. I am trying to convince my wife (who has never ridden) she might like to drive Ruby instead of ride on the back.
