Go Sportsters
 
I know there's a ton of sporties on ADV.



I'd rather see your modded-for-go bikes, but I'll take a looker too.
I just think it's about time for another pro sportster rally.




883, 900, 1100, 1200 I don't care.
I need ideas that don't involve more chrome, skulls or speedo-relocating.




My new-to-me 1200r.

Is that the ultra low seat?

Because it is a holiday week, does that mean Friday comes early?:norton

Bloodweiser 12-20-2010 06:05 AM

How about a bigger fuel tank that will get you further than the next bar?

j/k :rofl

a word of advice - really ride the stocker before you get rid of the grandpa seat. The stock seat on those bikes is, by far, the most uncomfortable seat I've ever ridden. Really. I miss mine, but NOT that seat.

Many of the aftermarket ones are questionable too - the mustang sloped too much forward, so you got racked in the junk on every stop. Comfy otherwise.

Sporties
 
I like Sporties, especially the "R's". Nice bike.

This bike is righteous.

The grampa seat and I get along fine, just a damned thing to look at. My lady likes it fine too. I'll probably keep it around for her and longer rides.

+1000,

Rather ride a bus, than spend more than 45 minutes on the stock seat.

Save yourself some trouble with the POS Sporty and just sell it to me!:freaky

I thought I heard the stock seat wasn't too bad... ?

Anyway, got a nice deal on it on ebay.



Looking for a duffle or something like. I keep coming back to the wolfman beta, any input on this? Other ideas that doesn't look like a leather keg?



....and where are these other sporties?! POST EM UP.

Had a grandpa seat on my old '91. Put on a Corbin because I hated the look of it. Corbin was pretty nice. I think the best thing to do is to throw away HD's lame excuse for shocks and put on some real ones! I have had two different Sporties, loved them both!
