Default Shorrty from ND

Used the search button to find your intro section and not seeing it. If am in error, please advise. I'm Deb from ND. This is my 3rd bike and is a 2011 Phantom. First bike was an ol '72 Ironhead Sporty. Didn't keep it long! 2nd was a '99 V-Star 650. Customized the heck out of it, then sold it. Just getting started on this one. Luv the blacked out look of it. I will powder coat everything I buy. My Kury mini boards are black. Luv it! In all honesty, the 650 had more huevos than this 750 does. That kinda bummed me out, but thought it out and how much faster do I REALLY need to go? LOL Anyway, that's me... She's lowered (Hey, I'm 4'10"!), got different bars than she came with, grips, ISO boards, quick disc. windshield, Mustang seat... Next will be black out exhaust.

4' 10" huh? In the colloquial you'd be known as a "spinner," I believe.

You sold a '72 Ironhead for a Star? That frightens and confuses me.

See now I was too polite to raise that somewhat pungent query, however since Major Tom, lacking my refined and delicate sensibilities feels free to just belch it out there.....

Why on earth would you flip a '72 Sporty for a Yamaha????????

Maybe she got tired of the numb fingers/hands/forearms and itchy nose?

Kids these days. There's no explaining it. They swap an appreciating asset for a depreciating gimcrack and wonder why their lives have gone in the ****ter.

Remember, the 70s Sportys weren't chopperesque. They had pretty high seat heights and 18" and 19" rims.
