Default Look what followed me home :)

Well after riding for over 30 years a good friend of mine made me a great deal an a bike I have been lusting over for quite a few of those years.
Here she is, a 2001 FLHRI Road King. She has some open pipes, a nice cam and a bit of polishing. She gets on down the road just fine and hey, my wife thinks she's pretty cool too. We are going to try and get a couple road trips in this summer, we'll see.. Here are the pics..

Beautiful...my dad has the '03 anniversary model...he's got it worked up with like 120hp...goes like a bastard. He and my mom rode from PA up to AK when I lived up there towing a 70s pop-up camper (twin size bed) behind him a few years back and from PA out to CO to visit this past summer. I was making fun of him because my Toyota Sienna was killing him up the moutains this summer when we went out to Durango...that and when they got rained/poured on like 4 times...haha.

I'll have a hawg one day when the kids are all grown up...
