Hi to all, Saludos from Australia!!!

I'm new in the forum; I'm a Colombian living in Sydney, I own a digital production company based in Sydney, call "25andSunny".
When I was a kid, I was obsessed with HD'S; I loved everything about them.
I used to pencil draw, HD's ALL DAY LONG!!!

I never own one because the insecurity in my old country , but now that I live in paradise; bring it on!!!!
so this will be my first HD, unfortunately in Australia we have a riding restrictions, so I put my money down for a street 500 in black denin color
anyway hi to all again .

Welcome to the asylum. You order a street 500 down under?

I find letting them buy leathers and boots helps calm them down.

I am sure that works no matter the country or continent.

Welcome to the forum!

Glad to hear that you are enjoying Australia and your new HD. Cool that you've liked them since you were a kid.

What are the riding restrictions in Australia?

Manipulating the wife has always been a challenge for all of us with only rare exceptions. Getting her sold on the "first one" is second only to getting her to agree to "more than one" when it comes to how hard this is to accomplish. LOL

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

Agreed; when I went with "Spousal Approval" for the new bike, she asked about the Vrod as a trade. I explained the Vrod has 30K miles on it they will give me nothing compared to having it available and to remind me of all those mile memories!

Hey it worked... Now with four, I am afraid she will realize motorbikes are a disease not a mode of transportation.
