Drove to Elgin, IL. to get one for $5,382. otd.
I'm a lot more thrilled about that price than I am about the gray color or the seat height. I'm short. Maybe too vain to be on my toes at the light. But it's also a comfort thing. Gotta fix that.
Put 15 miles on it Saturday, while it was sunny and not freezing.
Feels good going down the road. Not at all like the heavy ******* it is.
My last bike was a Sportster Custom it was low but heavy and not half as nimble as the SCR.
I like that this bike is not trying to be a Harley.

Howdy from Evanston, IL! We got ours from the same place I think... However, I had to give my tribute to the Cook County Mafia, (lol). But not by much. I as well put some miles on Yesterday... (41 miles since getting it delivered 2/23). Spring can't come soon enough. I came from a Sportster as well (Iron 883) and love the SCR so much more. I'm 5'10 so the height isn't as big a deal to me as the seating position is much better... Anyway, congrats!

Welcome to the forum.
What modifications and/or accessories are you planning to get in the future?
Keep us posted on how your SCR treats you!
I'd love to find a cheap low seat and get the license plate moved, maybe just snug to the steel fender. Maybe a skid plate but it's fine without.
I'm frugal also and not that handy. I took the toolkit out and it's still laying on shelf in garage. I was wondering. How could I use all that space under the seat for storage? That would be awesome to have a black molded tub that slipped in.
I would never take the number plates off. They're too cool. A big part of the bike, in my opinion.
Yellow paint would work but I need a roof, a shed and fence this year.

Obviously you haven't seen that TV commercial on "How to put up a fence while riding a motorcycle".
The contractors truck pulls into the driveway right as the motorcycle rumbles out of the garage and down the road.
I honestly don't recall what they were advertising....

I always liked the cleaner but still very legal plate mounts. At least for someone going even more retro they have a reason to let the plate stick out :D
Fortunately the SCR can fit that look.

Thanks, Jak!
Evanston's nice.
I saw The Church shows at Space and had a veggie burger that didn't suck, around the corner from there.
Ya know, a couple of bacon slices will fix that veggie burger right up. :laugh:

Welcome to the group, and don't apologize for the grey. I wanted grey, but the dealer with the deal in my area only had a red one left. Still a great bike and buy ($5257 OTD) with no noticeable difference in performance based on paint color.
