    Hi everybody!

    Hi folks, I'm John and I live in Airdrie, Scotland. Picked up my first Harley (2018 Softail Slim) 2 weeks ago, and have thoroughly enjoyed the very different style or riding there is on this bike compared to what I've been used to - last bike was a Suzuki SV1000S.

    It also seems that the better half has decided I won't go as fast on this bike as I did the last bike (she may be right....) and I've already had the sundowner 2 up seat and sissy bar installed. She seems really keen, and I'd hate to discourage that enthusiasm!!

    So, recon I'll be here a while learning form you all, and hopefully, I'll be able to contribute something back at some point!!

    Hi John, welcome from another living 'North of the Border'. Nice choice of bike which I'm sure both of you will enjoy.

    Welcome to the forum from Leeds, West Yorkshire. You're right, quite a change in bike styles. It's goodthat your ol lady is showing an interest, my other half couldn't be any more disinterested if she tried

    Hello Johnny,

    Welcome to the forum from Calderdale in West Yorkshire.

    I used to live on Hillfoot Road in Airdrie (1965 - 1966), I attended Tollbrae School at the time.

    I paid Airdrie a visit in 2011, the first time I'd been there for 45 years, the place had changed a lot over the years.

    Hope you enjoy the forum.
