Patience After Her Makeover

I bought my 05 HD 883 in 2007 from the Harley Dealership in Bellevue Washington on my way home from the hospital after a rollover car wreck.. I had been searching for a scoot for about a month and found "Patience" my HD name on the website.. She caught my eye she is Pearl Yellow and beautiful.. When my husband picked me up after being released we were driving home and I seen the HD sign I asked him to stop.. Went in and there she was sitting there. He had me sit on about 50 other bikes and I was in so much pain but kept going back to the yellow one.. After about 4 1/2 hours I left with Patience...I love that bike dearly and I have a great time riding her.. I now live in Idaho and love to cruise the back roads and see the scenery.... I have thought about trading her in cause people always tell me it is easier to ride a bigger bike, but I always leave owning Patience..

To all the women out there, ride what you are comfortable riding, I changed the handle bars, seat and pipes and as the 883 w/ the 4.5 gal tank is more top heavy and now it fits me perfectly..

Happy riding and be safe...

HarelyRookie and Patience

Love your bike, I have an 883 hugger and I love it. I think its the perfect size for me, although I didn't start out on her. I love your seat. Have fun!
