A “family” addition……………….

For those who know us well, this can only mean an addition of the 2-wheel kind and this time is no exception. DH’s ‘96 Road King (with 127,000 miles on it!!!!) has served him well but has been having a major mystery ailment that has prevented enjoyable/stress-free riding for quite a while. Now, this may not “rock your world” but, I’m here to tell you it’s had impact in our’s!!!!! For my more recent readers, here’s a photo…..

The “lovely” bike on the right is the subject of this discussion!

Enter this very ‘today’ version………..

Ummmmm…….I think it will be a while before I take a ‘shine’ to it. Maybe a few “tweakings”/wardrobe changes will help………yes, definitely! Anyhow, let this photo account of the morning continue………….

After a short ride, the two-some arrived home and a mild dismantle just had to occur. This new member already could observe that he was among friends (who were lined up on the opposite wall checking him out…..)

The weather will be very accommodating the next couple of days so, I imagine, there will be ample opportunity for DH and I to take in the Autumn scenery aboard our ‘rides’.

    I love it! Lloyd used to have a Victory. My second favorite to his Road King (though I really like his Fat Bob now, too!). You have a great collection. Enjoy playing! The weather is so great for it!
