Years ago I opened an e-mail account that I wanted to be able to remember easily, so I picked Ironhead due to owning a Harley Ironhead Sportster. I get started and every version of Ironhead seemed to be taken, I looked down and the newspaper I was reading with my coffee that was turned to the comics. There was the cartoon character Ziggy staring back at me, and a friend of mine hung that nickname on me years ago because I have his luck. Okay Ironheadziggy it is, so I type it in and :232: it's taken as well! So I finally add the year of the bike to the end of it, and finally it isn't taken, but now it's so long I grumble every time I fat finger it while typing it! Contrary to what my wife says it has nothing to do with the hardness of my head!

Hello all,
I found this site while doing research for a riding buddy of mine who just bought a new 2015 X. I've been riding for almost 48 years, and I currently ride a 2002 Harley Road King Classic, and a 2005 Suzuki V-Strom 650. All of my riding was done on Hondas up until the late 90's when I caught the Harley bug. I was in the market for a newer Strom and then I took my buddy's X for a ride and I got hooked. I kept looking at the pros and cons of the two and had almost talked myself out of the Honda until I went to Honda's website and learned of the changes to the 2019 version. I am buying this bike for a trip back up to Alaska that will be around 16,000 miles round trip taking the long way home.

I will probably have a ton of questions for you all in the coming months, but I'll try to search the forum before asking a bunch of questions that have been answered dozens of times. Thanks in advance....
