Finally!

Hi guys!

This introduction is long over-due. I say that because I've been on the hunt for an RC for at least the last 5 years and I've been crazy over the bike for even longer.

Last week, I finally was able to pull the trigger on an 04 Hayden edition with 35k miles on it. Although the mileage was somewhat high, I wasn't concerned because the bike had service records from it's first oil change.

A little about me: I previously rode a Suzuki TL about 6 years ago (this is a major upgrade!) and have been riding anything else for about the last decade. I'm living in Philly and frequent the twisties around here. Reach out and say hello! I'm looking for some great friends to get out and ride with.

Ben

Welcome aboard; you probably have the record for being registered the longest on here without a post (5 years ! ). Post pics (we better not have to wait another 5 years) of the bike once you reach that minimum post count...

Welcome to the chatter.
It sounds like you found the 'one'.

Talk about patience! I guess I was in the same boat as you when I bought mine in 2005, but I'd only been hankering after one for about 3 years, albeit not very seriously until the point I saw mine on the market.

You now have the prettiest model produced for the U.S. Well done. We look forward to seeing pictures!
