Two I never should have sold. I rode this 1964 Panhead for several years



I really should have kept this one. 1971 with a 1957 sidecar. The side car was converted over to hydraulic brakes.

I sold my XR1200, (I do miss her) I was just too old to ride her, I had speeding issues!!! I got a sweet Road King and I feel good riding it so far

A detachable shield and a set of bags.......what would this be like as a "sometimes" touring bike?

A lot of lovely bikes! Thank you all for sharing.

A buddy of mine pinstriped my Deluxe and I'm enjoying the forward controls as opposed to the footboards.

Warmest regards from up north, Mark H.

Nothing much nicer looking than a black Road King. Beautiful bike!

Hey all

First post here on advrider, been hanging out on hdforums for quite a while. Started "expanding my horizons" as it were and been lurking for a bit. Glad to know I don't have to trade one of my bikes away to be part of this adventure-riding thing

We've got 3 HDs in the garage right now:

"My" 2003 FLHRCI


"Her" 2012 XL1200C


"Our" 2010 FLHTCU


Nice to meet y'all!

Imagine that, I just joined the HDforums not too long ago.

Great bikes. Love the fishtails.

Got rid of it last January...my wife and I at the time were splitting up, and I decided I wanted to go back to a sport-tourer since I was going to be riding solo again mostly. I like the Zed, but I miss "Elvis".

Thanks!

Those are Kerkers with "Rocket Tips" on Cobra true-dual headpipes. It took a lot of research and swapping to find the fishtail look that would work with the SE211 cams, not be obnoxiously loud, and still allow reasonable throughput and not choke the poor bike off.
