"I've been on Motorcycles since I was 14... Motocross, Enduro, Street 3 Cyl 2 Stroke Suzuki's in the 80s. Later on to Norton (a basket case), A Sporty and after some time, a Road King. All of them have benefited my sanity in one way or the other... The 07 Road King (96ci/6spd) was a realization of years before, and it truly became my sanctuary.
In Oct I came in after talking to James for a while and wanted to ride a new 107 or 104 and planned to move into a different frame. When I got to the store and picked the Road Glide... I got what I expected... A powerful smooth bike with stability and bling to match... but couldn't have expected what came next. Went out with another rider and he took a new Road King Special 107... I asked if we could switch, since I owned an 07, I wanted to see the difference. When I sat the '18... it felt like home... then the other rider simply said, this one isn't as heavy as the Road Glide. Both 107s but oh man... I was about to discover weight and power. He jumped on the Glide and muscled on. I had to be a little "lickitee-split" and as I pulled onto the road and rolled the thottle... flashbacks of a 250 motocross bike momentarily flashed in my brain as I turned the bars ever so slightly into the breaking back tire... My Fault... My Fun!!The nimble Special snapped up, straight as an arrow, and within a half block... I was along side the other rider and let him know, we could continue... cause seat time is seat time... but I was ready to return the store... I wanted the bike I was setting on. He briefly expressed curiosity then smiled, I guess my expression told the story. We turned back to the store and I was in an amazing state... Can't describe it... but sometimes I tell people, it was pure emotion... that seems to be something to help them understand. I put the first 500 mi on it in about 3 weeks... the rest is history, as they say.The Staff... from front to back and side to side... the best Harley Davidson store I've been in... I am grateful."
