    Hi Everyone ! I rode a sport-touring bike for many years and was very satisfied with it. As time went on, I started thinking about the possibility of a full touring bike. Comfort; for myself and my wife - who had started riding more frequently with me; was the biggest criteria along with still having enough punch under my wrist for when I need it.
    I researched American and foreign models and found myself drawn to American made Harley Davidson. My wife was behind my move 100 percent but I had decided I'd wait a bit longer and possbily pull the trigger on a new ride in 2012.
    Little did I realize my darlling had started a slush fund awhile back specifically for my new bike. She saved up a good chunk of change and for my birthday in June - gave me a blank check and told me to take it and my bike - go make a deal with a trade and get the new Harley I wanted. What a gal !!
    I picked up my new 2011 Brilliant Pearl Silver Road Glide Ultra the end of June. The learning curve has gone well. It's a different 'creature' from what I'm used to riding - but it's been an absolute thrill.
    I look forward to reading and learning from the HDTimeline site !!
    So hello to all from New England and ride safe.

    Thanks - Steve.
