Hello

Hi Everyone - long-time lurker, new member.

Good friend and co-worker of CharlieFogg (Chris). When Chris was still riding HD, he got me interested. Currently have an Ultra Classic that I've never really been comfortable on - could never solve the buffeting. Went through six windshields, etc and it's time to move on. Will be getting onto a K-series bike soon and look set to join the CO ride in August.

Take care.

Welcome Reggie, Chris is a great guy and I'm sure he'll mentor you on your selection GTL or GT. Be sure to ride both, each is very different from the other.

Welcome to the group Reggie! (however, am not sure I would publicly say that I was a friend of Chris'. You know he can be quite the hooligan..........)

Look forward to meeting you as well. Good luck on finding your new ride.

Thanks for the welcome, everyone. The nickname is definitely a 48-Hours reference...
