Santa came a little early

Arlen Ness Custom Bikes has their shop not far from my house. Every once in a while I'll drop by just to see some of the cool custom choppers that they build. They also have Indians, Victories and some trade-ins on the showroom floor.

Well I always did like the Heritage Classic. They just happened to have a 2011 with only 10k miles on for a price I just could not pass up on. It was a bit rainy today but I just had to bring it home. Fortunately it was just a short distance and the rain was lite at the time.

So my new ride...

In the background you my notice my 2003 V-Rod which is sort of the antithesis of Harley-Davidson. I'll never part with my V-Rod but it will be nice to: 1) carry something more than what fits in my pockets, 2) go more than 120 miles before entering panic mode to find a gas station, 3) go for a long ride and still have some feeling left in my back end.

Can't wait for the rain to stop for a bit so I can ride it some.

Way to go new bikes are fun. Custom paint? Hard to tell the color.

Just the Vivid Black, for now, that was pretty typical for Heritage Classics.

The Thunderheader 2 into 1 pipes are awesome. Good and loud, but not too loud (for my taste anyways); nice sounding.

Running Order: 761 lbs. (341 kg). And I thought my V-Rod was heavy.
