    Dire sorry for the slow response. The bike was originally built by the Patrick bros in Texas. Motor has been since cleaned up and head work done. Me and the old man picked it up for a song and a dance from a kid thats grandpa bought for him. Didn't want his son on a sportbikes. Originally had a kick start and they couldn't get it started. I think it's worth 5 grand lol. They put and electric start on it and they still just didn't have a clue about what they bought. Hes on a Honda fury now ! Perfect !!!!! The bike really moves but handles like a back hoe !

    Hey Flashman - just now seeing this - thanks. Yes, its been offroad a few times so far and it does great. I have a GSA and have owned the KTM 950's and a 990, and the Scorpion is probably somewhere between the two in off-road ability. Better than the GSA, but not quite as capable as the KTM's. Still, it works pretty good offroad for a Harley :evil

    There's a video of it offroading on my build thread or website.

    I love my '08 Road King Classic. When I was a kid, if someone asked me to think of a motorcycle, my mind's eye would imagine the sun glinting off the chrome on a Road King. It's my first and only bike, and I can't wait to ride the world on it.

    I've just started prepping for another 'big trip' and came across this thread. I can't believe that it's taken me this long to post a couple snaps of my bike. Hopefully you'll find these pictures as amusing as I do.

    Obviously you haven't heard. A Road King is not an adventure bike.

    Nicely done. :clap

    RoadHD... I would say that '08 Road King has delivered and shared many memories with you. Outstanding.

    Well done!! :clap

    My '06 Road King FLHRI, purchased new in Santa Barbara, California, presently resides on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia, has been around the country several times, and is just a few miles shy of 60,000 mi (97,000 km) as of yesterday's ride in the rain. My fifth Harley, and one of the best motorcycles I've ever owned. The other four H-D's are long gone, but this one's going with me. :D

    Brandy new '12 FXDC purchased last week. Sure is different than my last HD, '75 FXE. Quite different in many ways but still the same considering 37 years in age. Love it!!

    Thanks! I've owned a couple of Softails and drooled over the FLH's for as long as I can remember. It's good to be in a position to finally own one :D

    My first 100 miles of many more to come!
