Hello, my name is Mark and I'm a Harley owner.
Just picked up this baby yesterday at our House Of Harley's Biketoberfest. My 1st Harley!
Man, lemme tell you, a LOT of very surprised people in meatspace and cyberspace as I've been a longtime sportbike and dualsport rider. But still, for years I've called our Harley shop THE friendliest bike shop in town. Besides hosting many community functions they even dyno'd my Duc for free on my birthday a few years back. Oh and they have a free camp spot for all motorcycle travelers that includes access to a free showeroom. They gave me a killer deal on this 2011 Softail Deluxe in part because they think of finally getting me on a Harley as great PR in our riding community.
I can't even believe they let me ride it out of the shop through the Biketoberfest crowd. Talk about some trust! Below this photo of me heading out on a test ride last week I've included the video my brother shot of yesterday's departure. Let the good times roll, Mark H.
