Congratulations! Enjoy the new ride and personal protection device. Georgia rocks. Go Harley.

I'm a techno-geek, ballet instructor, I ride a pink Vespa scooter and pack a whip.

I have that pistol. I disassembled it right after I got it & found machine filings deep inside. Take it down for a thorough cleaning.

Great pistol. I had the bobbed hammer version and that thing was built like a tank. I could shoot full load magnums all day long. I still want to buy another one. I regret selling the first.

Sadly, the truth is that I was actually considering a GP100 3" .357...which they had in stock. That thing was massive. At 5'6" and 150lbs, I would have had to hire someone much larger to conceal it on......or have a leg amputated so I could hide the gun in the artificial. My son-in-law talked me out of that.....but, it sure was a pretty hand cannon.

When your shit is working, and no one else's is, you can feel all smug. Except for the part about the Harley.

Is a .357 required because a Harley is like a horse?

Hey, I was actually considering an Uberti or Ruger Vaquero for CCW....probably would need an older Harley though.

KLR and a Smith snubbie. They'll both get the job done if used correctly!

While Rugers might lack the refined elegance of vintage production Colts and Smiths...they have an outstanding reputation for reliable service. Only issue with the SP101 for concealed carry is weight.
BTW, I rode BMWs for a number of years and now have two Harleys and a KLR. Most of the H-D haters seem to rarely have experience with the bikes.
