75 year old new guy

Long time rider (60+ years) I have all kinds of bikes,many Harley's, several Honda's etc. Harley's are the only one's that have been problematic, but I loved all of them. This will be my last bike, for sure. I have tuned it up some, Bub's pipes, jetted,and K&N filter,risers, grips with boss. Windshield/lowers. Changed all the fluids. I am a bike mechanic,so it was easy. Thanks for letting me in to this forum.
