My Husband wants a Harley

Yes, it's true. My jusband would come in his pants if he could get a Harley! He used to have a motorcycle years ago when we were in our 20's.

Then we/he gave it up during the kid years because I was paranoid that he or the kids would get hurt.

Now it's back on the wish list, but we have to have the financial resources to get one, or go into debt - that is the American way, no?

Whatever, I thinking I see one now in our future! It'll be cool, fun, and exciting!

I totally agree. Although we did not buy a harley.. it was that go into debt thing. Instead we bought a Honda. To be exact, a 2001 Honda Shadow ACE Deluxe..

Nice bike, and we did not go into debt. My hubby had a bike many moons ago too, but then he crushed his foot at work and for many years could not ride. He is very happy to be able to ride now. As a matter of fact he was still using crutches when he got the bike so I bought him a leather rifle sling to attach to the bike to hold his crutch.

Bikes are I hot! I can't wait to ride my own... I'll get the Honda and he'll get the Harley. LOL

I do ride a harley, but I dont think I will ever buy a new one again. You can get a bigger motor, better warrenty for a lot less money and your still in the wind. She has a Honda aero and I will ride it every once in a while--Before it gets painted pink!! I also would take the ABATE course.

Hornyhubby - A honda is cool, too. You still get the ride, but I still want a Harley!

greenfield - mmmmm, more advice against a Harley... I think my husband has his heart set on one anyway! We'll see..

Is the ABATE course the one you have to take in Indiana?

You do not have to take any class if you wish not to, but they will give a refresher class that might help ya out when you need it, ie: sand in a corner. If you ride like you have brains and watch what going on around you, you will be fine

As you say, getting a Harley these days represents a significant financial investment. But by the same token, when time comes when you might find yourself strapped for cash, with a HD you will most likely get a big chunk of your original expenditure back. Recommendations? Try buying something less costly to start - the market is flooded with Japanese Cruisers that are selling for less then half what the owners paid for em' just a short time ago! See if getting back into biking (period) is going to fit comfortably into your current financial and lifestyle situation. If all systems are go after that, then go onto the Harley. My last Harley took me about ten years to save up for, as my wife was unwilling to get us deeper into debt then we already are (and I agreed with that). Most people are unwilling to wait that long for anything - but it's just a suggestion.
