5 years ago today
« on: Dec 11, 2012, 09:47:51 AM »
At 2pm today I will have had my Raider for 5yrs - in the past the longest I would keep a bike was 2 - 3 yrs. I guess I finally found one that I really like. It's running as strong today as it did on the first day. This is probably not a good place to post a testimonial on the virtues of these bikes because everyone already knows - so I won't. I'm looking forward to enjoying the next 5yrs as much as the first.

Ok I'm going for a ride now!

    Outstanding Gary!
    I go too far and too fast to ride a Harley! If you see my bike on a trailer call 911. A Corbin fairing, bags, heated seat, V-Rail and back rest, PC3, PR Air Kit, V&H BR, 5" Chopper's Surplus Z Bars, DWG sound system, Indian front fender, mucho Kuryakyn and Yammy bling,

    If we're not supposed to eat animals ... how come they're made out of meat?  ;D

    Harley... the art of turning gas into noise without all that pesky horsepower.  ;D

    Nice!

    I don't think I have ever owned any vehicle that long!  Farm vehicles excepted of course!

    Thats cool. Except for my 96 Chevy, Ive never kept a vehicle longer than 3 years. Unless I trade my Raider in for another I know Ill have this one for a long time. :raider:

    I'm just ahead of you RK, 61 months with 61k miles and no sign of it slowing down any time soon. Man I love this bike.

    Sometimes it's a little better to travel than to arrive.

    If the long way takes you through Phoenix, stop by and say "Hi".
