G'day lads, been reading awhile but never found the time to join. Living in WA is like living in the 1800s. The closest thing to riding was a 50cc scooter I had in Darwin for awhile. I've always wanted a cruiser, then progress to a Harley and happiness would be mine......if my wife would let me. She is deadset against bikes but lately she has warmed up a bit to Harley's after watching Sons of Anarchy (bikers riding around shooting each other not a big selling point). She likes the design of cruisers and Harley's but currently has my balls in a pickle jar. So my question would be have many encountered this dilemma? And how did you deal with it? In saying this the only bikes I've ridden are the scooter and the thumpster, I'd like to start out on a cruiser just so I don't have to buy/sell/buy, any thoughts on this? Cheers guys.
