My new 2-wheeled toy

Brought her home on Friday in 27 degrees. figured if I didn't do it then, it would be sitting at the dealer until March or so. My first fairing bike, what a difference!

I did this morning before I went to work!

Actually I started it up, I wanted to see if the iPhone would charge when it was plugged in to the USB port in the fairing while the engine was running (it does.). Harley really has thought of everything with the 2014s. Bluetooth. Fairing power port. Cruise. Open/close able split stream fairing vent. Is it spring yet?

Thanks for the compliments. Blue just always winds up being my color...

I had the father of all decent fairings, a Vetter, on my '72 Yamaha 650. It replaced a piece of junk Bates fairing. On the Vetter, the headlight and turn signals had to be rewired, since they were part of the fairing, but with storage compartments and windshield vents, it was heaven.

Me too. I was pretty much anti-Harley until a few months ago. I was totally happy with my Suzuki Boulevard M50. Then my buddy with a Road King mounted an amp and some saddlebag speakers. I thought, "That's pretty cool, I can do that." So I started shopping for hard bags and an amp for the Suzuki. That got to be tedious. Then my wife decided she was going to trade in her Boulevard S40 for a Sportster 883 Iron. And that was the beginning of the end for my Suzuki. The SG just called to me...

Rockford: that fairing is just nuts! You were the coolest of the cool back then riding on that setup!

Oh, I hear you. I grew up working in the MC industry and was a staunch Metric bike enthusiast. After about 40+ years of that... The wife and I bought Harleys.

Let's just say there are motorcycles. And there are Harleys. Until you own one, you have no idea what it really means.

Mine was a 1995 Ultra that I converted to a Street Glide ('Glides are sooooo sweet!) and the wife's was a 2009 Deluxe. In a brief fit of senility, we sold them to move back home to Fort Worth. Now... there isn't a day goes by that I don't think of my 'Glide and ache to get another.

Ride safe!
