2008 XLl200L Harley

I am 64 years old and began riding on my own two years ago. I always rode with my husband but wanted to ride alone. I went to the safety class and began riding a 2008 XLl200L Harley. It is purple haze which is my favorite color. I have put a solo seat and a small luggage rack on it. It has also been lowered about two more inches which makes it very easy to handle. I have rush slip on's, a sport windshield, forward controls, and some other extras. I really love my bike and it will probably be the only one for me. I have ridden 11,000 miles on the week end in less than two years. My husband which has forty years experience on a bike has really helped me to learn to ride solo. We are a Harley family. My husband has a 2009 Street Glide, my son has a 2009 Cross Bones and my daughter in law has a 2010 Wide Glide. We really enjoy getting together and riding on the week ends. I encourage any women that wants to ride solo that it is never too late to learn. The enjoyment that I have experienced is awesome.

Great Story!
by: Bridgett

I love hearing such great stories of Women taking charge of their own ride! Not that I have an ounce of issue with a Woman who chooses to be passenger, my friends often feel like they have to apologize to me in a way or comment they could never do it, It doesn't matter, It is a personal choice, but not for everyone, man or woman. I for one am glad I learned to ride. I also have a Sporty, 2007 1200L, I just upgraded from an 883XL, I thought of hanging on to my 883 till I got real skilled and move up to a Deluxe, but really I think "Grace" (My bikes name) is all the bike I will need for years to come. I just got her last week, rode all day yesterday and had the biggest grin on my face, The Zip the 1200 has is incredible! I learned to ride at 48, 8 months ago and love it!
