The Classic seems to be the new "king" at the moment. A lot of scoot for the money. Enjoy

Nice ride, a clone of my '09, 103 aside. My question though, looking at your map, how did you get to Maine without passing through New Hampshire?

Nice read Ken, glad to see you having fun on the new bike. If you don't mind, please PM me with what you got in trade in on the GS. The wife has an '11 with 50k and we may be moving on soon. Very nice that you had such a good experience with your GS. For us, things went down hill fast after 30k.

Sounds like you found a sweet fit for your bike. I suck at two bikes, so completely understand going from two to one. BTDT. You're getting to the point where you might find this little organization interesting... IBA

Lots of fun rides to think about or ride. And fair warning, it may lead to riding more or even thinking about entering an endurance rally. Think scavenger hunt by motorcycle. Great way to see places you might never have found on your own. Different ones all over, from 8 hours to 11 days. Some are self paced Grand Tours that give you another excuse to go for a ride too. http://www.therally.us/rides.html

Keep smiling and enjoying that new Glide.

Thanks Ken, I just figured you went thru Quebec to get to Maine. That's what I did last time I was there. NH is a pretty state at the right time of year. I wouldn't want to be there now though.

Ok

Thanks ken
I'm going tomorrow to see if I can get it out door with cruise of 20k
Another dealer was a bit higher but offered the first service free.
Not sure what that's worth?
I didn't think I wanted black but yours looked so nice
I want black!
I'll let you know
Hap

Nice, real nice. I traded my buddy my 2011 Multistrada for his Glide for a few miles and was pleasantly surprised, I would have liked to put a few hours on it to see how long term was.

blessing your bike - a very good idea. Every time I get a new ride, I take it asap to a quiet place I know, and pray over it. Give it back to God, for His purposes.

Nice ride....

NICE. Ultras are awesome.
One suggestion however.....get a set of color matched fairing lowers. They are superior to the fabric ones. They do a better job and they're vented so you don't need to remove 'em when it gets warm out. You just cannot beat them when it rains. Best thing I ever did to my Road King; well, the second best thing after mods to make it go like it ought to have from the factory.

Lava red is the fastest color, though.

Hey Ken, congrats on the bike. I bought an '11 in June of that year, wonderful bike. Been from Idaho to North Carolina and Wisconsin to Southern California. Ride safe!

I like reading your post, you look like you're having a blast on your new bike. BTW I think the Glide is a nice bike to ride too.
