I had two Hd's.
Great bikes. The best finish and build quaility of
any bike I've ever owned, and by virtue of having
a belt instead of a chain, the most maintenance
free. Parts are half the cost of any other bike and
with so much interchangabilty and dealerships
every 5 miles it seems, you will never be off the
road for long in the unlikely event you do have
problems. A Harley is an absolute breeze to work
on too. The open-pipe faux thuglettes give HD a
bad image, and everyone who DOESNT own a
HD have 25 horror stories about them, but both
are easy enough to ignore. I say go for it . . .
Get a J&P Cycles catalogue, have fun! My only advice
would be not to consider a Sportster, just go straight
for the FL 'Bagger or Road King.
