  9. Hey all Thought I'd celebrate my 71st Birthday with a new 2021 Harley Davidson Tri-glide Ultra in vivid black. It's been about 7 years since I rode and the test ride was really different, you don't lean in the corners like a regular bike. It's definitely a different kinda animal...lol. because of my old weak knees and bum hip I can't ride a regular bike, but this rides like a dream. I pick it up tomorrow. Here's a picture of it. Ron g
