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 .

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

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.>:D>:D

Two rules for Harley owners:


1) If there's garage space you need another motorcycle.
2) If there isn't enough garage space build another garage.

Remember if you move the project to "living room" for the winter there is an extra space in the garage. That counts.

You've just identified the hardest problem requiring manipulation of the wife. Convincing her that working on your motorcycle in the living room is an absolute necessity.

Yes mine draws the line when the boards are on the two steps up from the garage to the living room.

Apparently rolling the snap on tool chest into the living room is bad? Who knew?

Women can just be unreasonable but, my wife reminded me, that if I happened to be bringing in Snap-On tool boxes as a part of a kitchen remodel (using tool boxes as the basis for the remodel) she wouldn't object and would be all for it. I could probably slip my work tool box into the living room during the confusion. LOL

Jeeze Stone, I am seeing a new lift table in your kitchen.

Pull the wheel chock you have you basic kitchen Island, once dinner is done push the roller on it, pump it up, and get the project moving forward!>:D
