It warmed up to 70 degrees today I loved it I took off around 11:00 took the long way to Mom’s we ate around 1:00 the girls were there as well as my grandson I enjoyed the visit, Dad’s health is going downhill everyday that bothers me I must begin going down to visit a couple times a week instead of just the weekends I don’t want any regrets beside neither of my brothers go to visit him so he really enjoys when I go down. Dr Atkins is frowning on me right now but what are you going to say to Strawberry Shortcake. I needed some supplies from Giant Eagle so I forced myself to bring the bike home and put it away and took the truck to the store after I came home and put everything away I began making and freezing my hamburger patties after I got done I went to wash my hands and realized my pinkie ring was missing *sigh* I proceded to dismantle all the burgers but to no avail I figure some day I will find in inside a hamburger, I went out to the garage to lock up my girl and set the security system and just for the heck of it I checked my gloves and sure enough there was my ring I could not even remember it not being on that bike just puts me on cloud 9
To answer ChefRichardM’s comment that is a tough one I have been riding most of my life I started with a 380 Suzuki I was hooked then I bough my first Harley it was a 1972 Sportster I loved it I kept it till my girls moved back in with me after the divorce they were 3 and 5 years old and anybody who is a single parent knows after that there is not much time for anything else so I sold it I did wothout till they began their teenage years then I bought a 1980 Sportster shortly after that I got a great deal on a 1978 Lowrider then I sold the Sportster to keep the bigger bike which has kept me content till last year when I bought a 100 Anniversary Heritage Softail, Back to your question what is the best Harley to buy for a novice rider the best thing to do is take a safe riding course get licensed and spend some time at the Harley shop some shops have demo’s that you can test ride and simply find which one is most comfortable for you they are however very expensive so it certainly is a major decision, Personally I love all bikes my friends ride a lot of different types of bikes and we all have a great time, give it a lot of thought decide what you want, buy it, and have fun.
I have kept a private diary on my computer for the last 3 years I decided today since I read a few other diarys I will start my diary here today, It was beautiful out today almost 70 degrees after the long and brutal winter I needed it I just had to take the Harley out today but of course since I had the security system activated all winter the battery was almost dead so off comes the seat and I threw about 1/2 hour charge to it and she fired up it was great I only rode about 50 miles but it felt so good I am looking forward to tomorrow it is suppose to be 70 something I am going to Mom’s for dinner it is my nephews birthday so she is making dinner plus the girls will be there I always like to visit with them
