Hey y'all (translation: "hello") from Atlanta, Georgia. Thought I'd write a brief intro as I just joined the forum.

Got my bike last week from Frazier's Harley-Davidson in Buford, GA. I've ridden about 300 miles so far, and I absolutely love the bike. I've owned several motorcycles (my other bike at the moment is a Road King, but in previous lives I've ridden Japanese sport bikes), but this one is the best. The handling of the Livewire is amazing. It reminds me of my first bike, a 1990 Honda Interceptor VTR 250 (salient point: bike had no power but handled like it had a direct connection to my cerebellum). I'm amazed that a 500+ lb. Harley product handles like a 280 lb. Japanese sport bike. However, unlike my 250 cc Honda, the acceleration of the Livewire is incredible. Many bikes can go from 0-60 in 3 seconds flat, but no bike can do it with as little effort as the Livewire. Honestly, from my perch on the bike, it feels like 3 seconds is a bit conservative for 0-60. Yet... this bike is easy to ride (if my elderly mother rode this bike she could smoke any Ferrari off the line). According to what I've read, H-D intended this bike for new riders. As an experience sport bike rider, I thought that it was nuts for a new rider to consider a bike this fast. I was wrong. This is the easiest bike to ride that I've ever experienced. Like my most recent sport bike, a 1995 CBR 600, the Livewire is easy to ride at low/moderate speeds, yet is obscenely fast when you give it a bit of throttle...

I'll stop my raving. I could go on, but anyone who has ridden the Livewire knows what I'm talking about. This bike really is that good.

As for me: I am a car and motorcycle enthusiast extraordinaire. My first memory in life is about a 1960s rusted Oldsmobile parked in front of my house back in 1985. My car/motorcycle enthusiasm has grown from there. I currently own 6 vehicles, although I'm looking to add to my fleet. I love all vehicles, but lately I've become enamored with electric vehicles. I'm sure I will have many opinions and ideas about the Livewire, and I'll try to share them in this form, if y'all don't mind.

Happy (electric) motoring,
Anubis

Definitely worth the wait. I pre-ordered back in July, so it was a long wait, but so far it was definitely worth it.
