Hi everyone, I’ve been lurking here for a little bit but as I pick up the bike in the morning I feel I can justify a new members post now!
I’ve been riding bikes since I was 16 and I’m now approaching 40, but this is my first HD. My primary bike is a Honda CBR1100xx blackbird, but she’s a bit to big and fast for running into town, so I was looking to get a small 500 retro/brat style runaround. Then I saw the XG range and had to have one.
My plan for just a cheap simple runaround has also gone out the window, and I have already started down the route of minor customisations with parts arriving before the bike. Something tells me this is going to be addictive.. and yet another thing the less the wife knows about the better!
Are there many other riders from the UK? Particularly keen to find others from the south east for the occasional ride out.
