    Hello everyone

    Just wanted to put forth a quick introduction, as my wife and I are joining the tribe.

    She's upgrading from a 2007 Honda Shadow Aero 750 to a 2016 Springfield - just have to get it lowered on the shock kit and slip the forks a bit. (dealer to do 4/28)

    I'm upgrading from a 2004 Honda Shadow Sabre 1100 to a 2017 Chieftain Dark Horse, just have to wait for delivery from Oklahoma to where I'm at in the DC area.

    Pictures to come, soon I suppose. Get ready for plenty of questions buried in big walls of text from me. We've only been riding a couple years now, but each have 15-20k miles in the saddle.

    Hoping for some good weather in early-mid May if we want to try and meet somewhere for a quick showoff and ride. I'm in Sterling and planning to meet up with some riding buddies out Manassas way.

    Waiting for my chieftain to ship from Oklahoma and got the first available appointment to lower the Springfield for the wife on the 28th. fun times all round

    @Odin

    Which dealership in OK if you dont mind me asking?

    I have been to three dealerships in OK, and one really stands out in my opinion.

    Just wondering if our opinions are the same.

    @Odin,

    The dealership in OKC was the one I thought I liked the best. They also sponsor a flat tracker I believe.

    I hope you are well taken care of.

    Here is to good riding weather.

    Enjoy both bikes.
