The bike has arrived!

Well it is about fucking time. Our bike was supposed to be here about 2 weeks ago. It has finally arrived and is at the Harley dealer, getting the finishing touches.

Can't wait to see it, and go for a ride. I have been on the search for a helmet. Arkansas does not require a helmet, but I think I want one. I think I want a full helmet. I have tried on several, but end up feeling the bad end of sensory deprivation. Almost claustrophobic and a bit of the panic sets in. Any ideas people? I feel I need one, because people drive like shit here.

There is something about the South, everyone thinks they are Jeff Gordon. They drive fast and like shit. This doesn't make sense to me because once they get to their destination they certainly don't appear to be in a hurry.

Whoo hoo! Have a great time!

LOL..I swear, it has to be a deployment thing.

Hubs has a 2005 1/2 Anniversary edition Fat Boy having the final touches added at the dealership as I type.

I pick it up for him next week. (I'm trailering it thankyouverymuch)

We have NXT half helmets. They're Kevlar and are very lightweight to wear. The best prices I found online were at J&P Cycles. (If you already know your helmet size)

Have fun!

Road King... someday when I grow up and get big, I will own one. That, or a Road Glide!

For now, the Fat Boy works.

As for your helmet, you mentioned full helmet. Have you looked at modular helmets? Full helmet, but the whole front flips up.

My only gripe with a full helmet is that it kills your ears on a long ride.
