What do you love about your bike?

Everything, if I don't like something about it I'll change it until I do!

Any dislikes?

None that I can think of.

Where I bought it

The 1980 FLT got from my late father inlaw.

The 1989 Softail I bought new from the HD dealer in Fayetteville, NC and the 2005 FLHT I bought from a private owner.

Why I bought it

The 2005 FLHT I bought because it was a carburetor model, as good as injection is I still like carbs and not to mention I got a killer deal, the guy I got it from was in a bad sitution. We weren't crazy about the color so the first thing we did was put a custom paint job on it.

Tips and Tricks

  • I can't really give anyone advise as to why they should get this bike, as I see a bike purchase as a personal thing. Either you like it or you don't. That's what makes this country so great we have choices!
