I did it! I bought my third bike (and my first new one)!
Meet the 2013 Softail Slim!
I took these last 2 pictures with my cell phone, and since I’m one of the few people left on the earth who doesn’t use an iPhone, the photography isn’t the greatest … but the bike totally is!!
Can you tell I’m happy?
The dealer is having to add a riser to bring the handlebars closer to me (short arms), is moving the brake closer to me (short legs), and is changing out the grips (small hands). Because I like to travel, I am also adding a windshield, saddle bags, and engine guard. I hope to bring the bike home in a week.
I CAN’T WAIT!!
I sure am going to miss my sweet little Sportster though …
Aaahh I’m SO happy for you Laurie. That’s one crazy good lookin bike!
It’s good to dream, but even better to have dreams come true!! 🙂
So true, Meg!! and yes! It is a crazy good lookin’ bike! Love that all my girl blogging friends are so excited for me (see other comments)!
Congratulations! It’s a beauty.
Yes, it is a beauty!! Thanks Mae (and my friend that I mentioned in a previous comment asked for your blog link … I know she will find comfort and encouragement from you!)
Congratulations Laurie, I can tell you’re over the moon. I don’t know anything about bikes but it’s awesome that they can adjust everything for you. That’ll make for a safer ride and probably more comfortable too. Happy travels.
Thanks so much! I need to decide where I go for my first long trip. Possibilities!!
Congratulations! Excited for you and hope you have many happy travels with your new bike!
Thank so much for being excited with me! I can’t wait to bring the bike home 🙂
