My new Harley FatBoy just got delivered to my house yesterday.
What a great Christmas present from my wife! To top it off the temperature was in the upper 50's and the sun was shinning so I was able to take it for a spin. Very unususal weather for NE Ohio.
The color is Diamond Ice Pearl, (Silver). I couldn't believe how close in color it is to my Cortez Silver 69' SS396. Sitting side by side in the garage I don't see any difference at all.

This is my first HD, guess that why I'm like a kid that just got into the cookie jar without getting caught.

Hope the Chevelle doesn't get jealous and start dripping oil.

I suppose I better get my wife something real nice too. But how do I get her anything with out feeling cheap this year. Diamond earings sound good...

Yep. I see that a large diamond purchase is in your future, as well as a mile-long list of honey-do's.

Enjoy the Hog.

That's an easy one. You need to leather her up, You know... jacket,vest,chaps,boots,glove's and some real sexy Harley top's. This is a win,win situation. She gets all the leather and you get to look at her and sport her around on the back of that new Boy that is FAT A nice rock stuffed into one of the pocket's of that leather and you can forget about the honey do list for a while
Congrats man...Your going to love it.

Sounds like a beautiful bike Brian! My uncle recently got a Harley and they are definately growning on me. I think it would be really cool to get an older harley and restore it, then throw in the biggest cam you can buy - along with some drag pipes. Now how cool would that sound at a stop light? Who cares if it's slow...I just wanna cruise


Congrats on the new toy!

Someone help me out on this. I was at an Indian dealer last week looking at what looks like the Indian version of a Harley Sportster. Other than the air cleaner cover, the engine looks just like Harley's Evolution engine. Is Indian buying their engines from Harley? Or do the engines just look that much alike?

Thanks for all the sugestions guys. I picked up some leather for her already and picked up a couple of rocks for her to wear on her ears. It might be a great idea to put them in one of the pockets.


Merry Christmas to all from the USA to Canada to Isreal!


I was thinking once I get her in all the leather it might be fun getting her back out of it too!

Just get her a halter and chaps.
Honest, Honey, that's what all the girls wear!


You are gonna have the same problem I have.
When it's nice enought to ride, it's nice enough to drive. I might be selling my bike.
Who knows.
