I just found this thread so I'll post my short intro. I've been a member for a short time now and I'm also a new rider. I was in the market for a bike and I couldn't pass up the deal I got on my Raider (10.2K out the door and it was still in the crate from the manufacturer) Active duty Marine Gunnery Sergeant stationed in SoCal (29 Palms). Always looking for good advice. Just changed my oil and transfer case oil last night on my bike after the 600 mile break in period (I had 700 miles). I couldn't have done it without all the help on this site.
