New to Houston and a new bike

Hello -

Found the forum recently while searching for a use sport bike and was lurking around. Time for the introduction now.

Moved to Houston recently from Cleveland,OH. I signed the papers yesterday for a New 2010 Harley XR1200(Mirage orange). Will be picking it up tomorrow. I have some experience riding motorcycles. I had a few 250's and couple 600's(CBR's). Never been to the track, did not do any crazy stuff. Just regular riding.

I have been looking around for a used sport bike for the past few weeks, but found the XR1200 for a good price and also the insurance is much much cheaper. I always wanted to get the Harley night rod, but did not want to spend 18K for it. May be next time.

Looking forward to join some riding clubs/events.

-- Abi.

Yep, they had 2, I picked the one with 28 miles. The asking price was nice, but when I walked in to the dealer, they added the freight and prep charges. I was also shopping for a 2010 R1 and the dealer waived the prep and freight charges, but Harley dealer did not want to budge. So they added couple grand for dest+prep+TTL.
