Yes sir, off a Uly. So much better lighting than the stock piece.


Plus I like the way it looks. Will be converting to a numberplate front end with one of sanjoh's LED lights as a headlight.

I just shook my head in disgust today........


I was at a local Harley dealer, a guy was purchasing an XR1200. The first thing he asks the service department to do is............put forward controls on it

Out at about 150 miles. I have not run out of gas yet. I have made to the pumps a couple of times where I could not give it much throttle. One windy day on freeway it was at 130 miles. I have gone over 150 miles a few times. What I am trying to say is you will know how many miles you can go before you are out. The most I have put in is 3.6 gallons.
Uhhh.......no. Not me. I get a whopping 100 miles out of tank. And yup. Already run out twice in the 2 months and 2500 miles I've put on it.

This thing is just too much fun to wick up and I don't commute on it. Gonna play on mine tomorrow. Hopefully I have the new X shocks dialed in a little bit better. We're about to see.


BTW, switched from OEM HD Dunlops to the PR3's with the heavyweight rear. Doing real well with them so far. I do like the profile better. Easier to get on it's side for me.

Everytime I would enter a HD dealer I would always hop on one of these. Something about riding an old style flat tracker interests me. It is a quirky bike that is being passed over by a lot of people

Talking Take care of it

Reading about this, I better take care and be ready to answer more questions as to what bike that is. Mine is a 09 with 18k on it.
