Cool I'm almost to 1000 miles... greetings fellow SS riders!

Greetings from Dayton, Ohio!

I'm joining because forums are awesome and commraderie within a certain model motorcycle's community is key!

I used to have a 2003 Yamaha R6 which I purchased new out of high school, then I rode my dad's 2005 HD Road King Classic for a few years when he wasn't traveling on it, and now, I have my personal [realistic] dream bike that I've been salivating over for a few years now.

I picked up a 2018 for $13,999 and I pulled the trigger. I'm at a 1000 miles, and I need a service, but our local mechanic is going to training, so soon I'll drive to the next nearest city to get it done.

Meanwhile, I'm going to research aftermarket parts and accessories and try and learn how to tame this friendly beast.

Nice to meet you all!

-RC

Welcome, since you were riding an R6, you might want to go to a 14T front sprocket. You can check it out on the forum.

Welcome, 3rdGear.

Lots of helpful people here from all over the world.

Glad you joined up!

So, lemme get this straight.

I twist this little tube, it gets loud, I go forward really fast and it makes me smile...is that how it all works?
