05 Road King Classic
Finally put a deposit down on the bike of my dreams this past August. Had to have one ordered in, would have been towards the end of the season when it arrived so I decided to wait until Spring to pick it up. Many sleepless nights thinking about that bike. Did quite a bit of research and shopping before I finally decided. Every shop I went to, the Road King Classic immediately stood out. Didn't want a bike with the fairing on the front but wanted two-up touring comfort. After reading a lot of reviews on the Road Kings, the feedback seems to be mostly positive. Certainly would appreciate any thoughts or advice anyone has to give about this bike. Last bike I owned was an 1982 750 Virago, V-TWIN, closest thing I could get to a Harley at the time, $3200.00 on the road. That wouldn't cover the tax on this one, Ha. Hope we have a beautiful summer in '05, plan to do lots of riding.
Take care and enjoy the holidays
