Front is a Continental TKC80, Rear is a Duro 904 something or other... one of the only 2 dual sport tires I could find in a 16"... Now that I just picked up an old Honda XL600, though, I might be switching to road tires... This bike is my all-purpose bike...

I do want a rubber mounted motor to quell the vibes and I'll need a decent shield and I need a way to carry stuff and I'd prefer a hard lockable case. I've seen a couple at a great price, just don't want to pull the trigger and find I can't outfit the way I need.

I'm looking for simple here, I put a lot of miles on a motorcycle real fast. 30,000 miles in a year is a light year for me.

So can I outfit a Sporty for the mission?

Two very different versions of the same bike. Stripped down scooter, and touring bike with custom trailer/ This 2004 Sportster has over 81,000 miles on it.

Nice. I had a 1984 XLX1000, but mine didn't come with a tach.The bars were flat black, as were the mufflers and pipes.

What fairing is that?

The fairing is an old Tracy "Black Rain" model that I picked up on eBay. Mine also had the black bars and pipes when I bought it, but they were pretty nasty looking. I found some barely-used chrome XLH headers and paired them with some Dyno Power slip-ons. The stainless bars are from the Night Rod Special. The tach is a NOS kit for the XLX I came across a few years ago. I'm working (sort of...) on a 2-1 system for it now.

Beauty bike. I had an '84 XLX too. First new bike I ever owned. Looks like you've done some work to the front brake too.
