I bought a new motorcycle today in Port Charlotte FL. It’s a Harley Ultra Classic Electra Glide. Now I have to get it home to St. Louis. It was quite a feat getting rid of my rental car and getting to the Black Widow Harley dealer in Port Charlotte. My plan is to hit the road very early tomorrow morning for the 1100 mile ride. I didn’t even bring any jeans or long pants with me when I flew down. Nor did I bring a helmet. So I had to do some quick shopping for the basics.
I knew I was going to look at some bikes and knew it was possible if I found the right one at the right price, but I really didn’t think it would happen. We’re planning a trip to South Dakota a week from Saturday, so if I was going to get a new bike, I needed to do it soon. I really didn’t want to ride my Sportster all that way.
I’ve put 24 miles on it this evening. I think I’ll do a little better than that tomorrow. I burned my leg twice already on the tailpipe. I don’t recommend riding in shorts.
So, I don't think I’ll be posting much the next couple of days, but if I get into a hotel that has wireless access, and if I’m not completely wore out I’ll try to post something.
Y’all be careful out there…. I know I will.
