Thumbs up Introduction

My name is Douglas Erickson I reside in Zion, Ill. I retired from the Navy in January 1996. This is my fourth Harley Davidson. My first bike was a 2005 883 low, I traded it in on a 2006 Dyna Lowrider, I sold it and then later purchased a 1986 FXRD Touring Edition which I sold in 2015. I purchased my 2016 XG500 in May and I am very happy with it. I was tired of moving around the heavier bikes as I mostly ride as a commuter and did not see the need for a touring bike. Being only 5'9'' and weighing 190 lbs the bike fits me well.

Welcome to the forum, Dougie!
I am a new rider that bought the xg750 as a commuter bike back in January. It handles commuter duty well, but I envy the fuel economy you xg500 guys get.
