Hi, I'm a newbie!

Hi, I'm new to the forum and to HD in general. I'm an older guy in my 50s and have been riding since the 80s. I bought a street rod a year ago to enjoy some city riding and to commute to work. I was initially tossing up between a Suzuki S40 Boulevard, a Honda Rebel 500 and the Street Rod. I liked the comfort and simplicity of the first two but thought I deserved something a bit sportier to tear around town (us older guys like to have some fun as well). I saw many reviews on the Street Rod prior to purchasing but when I test rode the bike it fit me like a glove. I'm only 5 foot 6 and my arms are pretty long, so the position isn't too bad for me. I love the power delivery and the smooth gear box, and I like the fact that I can lean this bike over pretty low. I still love the thing.

Welcome. Age is just a number, as a lot of us keep our bikes in a shed behind the old age home.
