Thanks for the encouragement - wish someone could answer my question about the Lowrider.

Good luck with the lowrider...I love the dyna..it's heavier than your current bike but very well balanced...and the 06 has been lowered from 26 to 25 inches to start...my dyna handles like no bike I've ridden..it's 1450 cc engine is large enuf to get me to sturgis and handles the twisties better than my old sportster...my 04 is approachin 30000 trouble free miles and I could'nt be happier...mine has fuel injection but that is a personal choice..lotsa riders swear by carborators... one thing they forgot to warn me about when I got the dyna is the bugs in my teeth ....you know.. because of the ear to ear smile I wear while riding it.

Hi, all..

I'm new to the site. Been riding a year now after having only been a passenger one time - had to get my own so I could ride whenever I wanted to.
I'm about to trade up from my little Spirit 750 ( been a GREAT 1st bike) to an '06 HD Lowrider. Will need to get that lowered as I am sort of vertically challenged. Anything I need to watch out for with the transition?? I put over 7500 miles on the Spirit in 7 months of riding weather - about half of that was riding by myself. What a great way to get your head together - beautiful Ozark roads, wind on your face - wow - cycletherapy. I also joined BACA - what a great organization!! My extended family...

Hey there welcome to the site,don't be affraid of us in here we don't bite-well maybe just a little nibble here and there....lol.. but seriously enjoy the site you will meet heaps of great folk here and it will be like you have known them for years.....

Your knees are on the ground eh? Well I'll be so bold to ask...."Wanna do a lady a favor while you're down there?"...LMAO

So if we ride together so I have to stay in front so you can watch me?

I would love to visit there someday...I have always dreamed of that.

Boscoe: That line/this thread made me peek. 'Women riders' worked for me. Drooling over bikes myself. Have my m1. Being a second is lotsa fun, however, waiting suxx.

And Boscoe: Your main pic ad work for you?

It was funny, by the way....

I am pretty new to riding. Started this past spring. I will get my endorsement next summer, however, to have my arms around my guy, to feel him squeeze my thigh or grab my hand and pull me in even closer, as we soar down the road is as near to freedom as I have ever gotten. I have to totally trust him. To keep me safe, to...I don't know but for me it's freedom.

I respect your love and honoring for your mother. I did not let that hold me back. I rode from the time I was 14 w/my boyfriends. Guess nowadays I'd be called an unruly child.
As an adult I also as a Registered Nurse. I worked Surgical ICU, the surgery and at times, home health as well. I never let the fear hold me back. I often worked a shift and get a MCA (motorcycle accident) admission and then go out and climb on the Glide w/me ole man.
Also at 53 I decide to drive my own. My mother was apalled. BUT, I did it anyway. I would not be experiencing the intense joy and freedom had I let her fears hold me back.
So I guess you had more respect for your mother than I did for mine. Also as a mother, I would never hold my children back from their desires. I love them enough to lay my own fears for them aside. Afterall, it is their life, not mine.
Just my humble opinion and meant with no disrespect at all.
Keep it up and in the wind...Cweet Char

I do have to admitt I have never felt what it is like to have that special someone on the back as I myself am new to the front. I had the love for bike sence I was little but due to a mother who worked anywhere from the Er to nurcing homes it took a few years before I could get her to relax and becomfortable with me riding. Now that I am into the service, repair and building of them things changed. She is a great woman that is why as an operater of a bike I am new but my love for the ride is not. Just though you ladies should know that just because you can enjoy being a passanger with a good man, that you also look good in control of your one bike and don't let any man tell you different. Woman look owsooooooom in charge of a good machine. I say this will all honusty and love in my heart. So ladies with the rubber side down enjoy life on the road. Love Dopybear

Riding my own became a necessity since I love to ride and had no one to ride with. Now I don't think I would have it any other way. I do enjoy being the passanger behind a good man though. Nothing like wrapping my arms around him, giving him a squeeze with my knees and enjoying the ride. Thanks for the salute.



Yep was a necessity for me too after my ole man passed.
Yea, you'd still enjoy two up...and yer right..nothing like it. I like when he puts his hand on my knee...*giggle*
