MY FIRST REAL SADDLE TIME ON A DYNA

Last week I told you about a run to Charlotte to get a couple of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Well, with temps near 60 degrees today, it was time to get them out and run them. They’ve both been sitting for a while but I’m happy to report that both performed flawlessly… and other than me not paying attention and running the tank over on the Low Rider… everything went great.

This was my first real saddle time on a Dyna and I loved it. I had the Electra Glide with the full-faring for so long that I forgot how awesome it is to feel the wind in your face when you ride. I also loved how easy the bike was to maneuver. And… not having to struggle to back an 850 pound motorcycle out of a parking space was also nice. Don’t get me wrong… I did love the Electra Glide but my next bike will definitely be in the Dyna or Sportster line.

This pic was taken at the local H-D dealership before our ride. I think him cutting my head off might have some subliminal meaning… ha! The guy in the orange shirt is a guy I’ve been riding with for many years. Another advantage of riding… making friends!
