New to forum

I am new to this forum and have joined for my wife. She has a deposit down on a 750 and waiting for her bike. She had a Harley years ago but just got her endorsement. This is the first bike I have been able to interest her in in 5 years.

With a handle like "oldrider" can we assume you already have your own motorcycle? If so what are you riding?

She should love her 750 when she gets it. Having only owned my 750 since Wednesday it's already been a pleasure. I've parked my Sportster as I try and get some mileage on the 750.




Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.

Stone don't say that too loud, I believe you're in violation of rule 42-B of the hallowed harley handbook. Thou shalt not violate purity

LOL

I am in violation too, my Sporty sits since I got my Street Rod, but don't tell anyone. Don't know about anyone else, but after riding something that rides better, brakes better, and runs smoother, I find it hard to go back. I expect a Street 750 would would be no different. Can't wait to ride one.

The dealer finally told us that they have 8 750's on order and they are expected/scheduled for about two weeks.

You asked about my handle and what I ride. First, the handle it was 50 years between the time I stopped riding and when I started again. I was
65 when I got back on two wheels. The folks that knew I was riding called me old rider. I rode with a group called the SOB's.

Second, I ride a Victory Vision that fits me like a glove. I looked for a Harley for over year and could not get one that fit me and that I felt safe on. Prior I had a Honda.

It would be a good excuse to get her a bike of her own!
