New Owner

Hello,

I'm a new 750 owner from Indiana, USA.

I've owned my bike for just about a month now and love it dearly. No mods yet.

I took a motorcycle safety course (ABATE) and loved it, and decided on the 750 over an 883 Iron.

Welcome.

Glad to read you took the basic safety course. It provides so much information for a new rider especially on riding practices that promote safety and is so superior to when I learned to ride before these courses existed. I've taken both the basic and advanced courses and advocate that riders go back and take the advanced courses if they haven't been to one in over five years. They are so worth it.

I believe you were correct in choosing the Street over the Sportster. Many fail to understand the differences but a Sportster isn't really a good motorcycle to learn on IMO and I own a Sportster as my primary motorcycle.

Most of all take your time and ride safely. Riding safely requires seat time and the experience it provides. Take it slow and easy and allow yourself to learn over time.

Live Free, Ride Safe.




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

With the purchase also came membership in H.O.G. and for the new rider, or for those new to Harley-Davidson, I'd recommend joining a local chapter. It's a great net-working resource when it comes to basic riding as well as becoming a part of the Harley culture which really is unique in the world.

Welcome to the forum!

I know you haven't made any mods, but are you planning on it or open to modifications?

Post some pictures up of your new bike when you get the chance.
