Hello to you all from Wisconsin! Just purchased (last week) a 2006 Roadliner Midnight with 19500 on the clock. I know, I know....what is a guy from Wisconsin, the heart of HD world doing buying a Yamaha? Well, let me tell you for the price $5500 and the fact that after I get used to riding it I plan on crusing with the wife. Plus I'm 6'2" 290 and the wife is well lets put it this way.....a farm girl. So I needed something that could handle the both of us. Now my mistake is not looking at this forum before purchasing said bike and reading up on the dreaded 3rd gear issue and drive nut vibrating out issue. Upon test driving the bike I did not notice and grinding and vibrating and it rode nice under me. But other than that, Any other issues that I should be aware of? Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the conversation and congratulations on the bike. My late wife was from Wisconsin so I've spent my share of time in Sheboygan.

Hi guys
australia here. Just picked up my 2008 roadliner with screen and hard panniers. Road home from Melbourne yesterday (4hrs), what a magnificent bike! Looking forward to enjoying the new family member. Greetings all.
