New Owner

Picked up a 14 with 8,500 miles yesterday, black. Only mod is the OEM sissy bar. Having had many many bikes over my 50 years of riding after yesterdays 150 mile ride home I have to say wow! This beast is powerful and very nimble for a 750 lb bike. The weight seems to go away at 5 mph.
Planning to add some highway pegs and looking for recommendations.
After searching the FB group I bought the Spitfire smoked windscreen to add....we shall see if it works. Easy return if not.

I do have another question for the group.... I have had an awful time getting this site to recgonize me as a member. Followed all the steps multiple times and kleep getting denied as not verified as human, or know spammer list (which I assue you I am NOT). I have sent the admin 2 mails with no response. Any hints?

Never mind on the admission question... when I hit post it asked again for registration info and this time it worked! Yay! On to the important stuff about riding dragons!

Welcome. Look forward to your thoughts as you get to know your dragon. Your initial response further confirms my theory that "you ride one, you buy one" and that Honda missed this opportunity. Where I live, Indian allow you to take a demonstrator Chieftan for a few days and ride it as much as you want. No obligation. They clearly believe the theory too

When I first joined last year I had issues with posting and it never showing up and no response from the administration. But all is good now.
I have Kuryakyn E III on my Valkyrie and E II on my F6B both are great choices (don't buy the cheap Chinese knock off's on EBay)
