In 1987, when I traded my
last bike, an Intruder 700, for responsible, professional
adulthood, I promised myself that if I ever took up riding again,
I would treat myself to an Electraglide or Tourglide and see the
country. In 1999, when I decided to check out the riding sport
again, I fell short on that promise, as I had grown more logical
and "thrifty" over the years, and did not want to make
that kind of investment without really knowing how much or how
long I would ride this time. If it was to be a short lived and
little enjoyed sport, then I didn't feel the need to "invest"
a lot of money.
Two and a half years later, I have ridden more miles on the "LC" than in all my years before put together, and now my wife rides her own bike as well, and there is no let up in site, so I have decided to fulfill this promise from years ago, while I'm still young enough to enjoy the experience. Good move, bad move, or indifferent, at least I will get it out of my system, and if the HD thing doesn't work out, I just may be looking to buy my old LC back!!
I have had nothing but wonderful times on the LC and it has opened up many doors to friendships that I would never have made otherwise, and the time spent, gave Harley Davidson time to do some very worthwile refinements on their machinery. The 2002 models are miles above their predecessors with regards to handling, cooling, dependability and servicability.
I will always hold the mighty LC in high regard, and still believe it is the most awesome looking cruiser on the road today. If you are considering purchasing one of these beauties, you'd better hurry before the market "discovers" them and the price goes through the roof !!
