    This is my 2001 Fatboy. I got it about four years ago from a friend who was stepping up to a custom. I've owned a few jap bikes and still like them but after I had kids I sold them. I always wanted a Harley so as the kids got older and this one can up for sale I figured WTF.
    It has "Thunderheaders" and a quick release windshield, other than that it is stock.
    I like the way it looks and sounds and love to ride it.

    I'd love to get a bike, but my wife has expressly forbid it because she says she wants me to be safe or something like that.

    Temps hit 70 today in Brooklyn so I dropped the battery back into the bike and went for a short ride.
    Rolled down to Ferdinando's Focacceria for a Panelle Special, a sandwich made on seeded Italian with panelle topped with ricotta and Parmesan. All ingredients made in house; what a great sandwich!
    Then down to Brooklyn Heights and enjoyed a cigar and the view.

    Man, I used to want a Fat Boy pretty badly. Nice bike. But like some other guys have said, my wife is worried about me being safe or something. In my house, a bike = divorce, at least for now. Maybe one day I'll talk her into it.

    I've been riding since before I met my wife so it would be hard for her to ask me to stop now. When we first started going out I was a bit of a "squid" riding Japanese sport bikes and even had a notion to race so the fatboy seems tame to her now.
    I'm sure if I had just now decided to ride she would object.

    I always wanted to ride. Had a lot of friends who did. I flipped a moped we messed with and a dirt bike, that plus the fact my parents would kill me (they had firends who died on bikes) I never really did. If I got one now I'd be a total poser--highway and major roads would scare the crap outta me. I guess it's a learning curve and you need to build experience.

    In either case I'd be riding vintage--maybe a 47 Knucklehead or a 60's era worked panhead :D or even a triumph, norton etc

    Id probably even do something ghey like put an homage to Brando on my jacket, the "BRMC" with skull and crossed pistons :)

    (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club from the 1950's "The Wild Ones"-not that ghey internet youtube based band)

    mine objects even knowing that I've been riding since I was 12.....but, she's going to lose the arguement, I'm getting an enduro, the fuel efficiency is a no brainer, and the fact that regardless of weather, I can still ride it (short of ice) I'll be fine....besides, there's fun trails at the local OHV area that I'd love to ride on a bike....

    My wife refuses to ride on the back of mine anymore but she won't ever mention that I should stop riding.
