just saying "howdy". ok, i don't have a camera to post pics, but i bought an 02 1200 sporty this past thursday. 5 g's for a bike with 3300 miles. had to give it a try. it's got forward controls and drag bars with some risers, plus an aftermarket headlight that looks pretty cool. i was supprised that it handles so well, doesn't have bad vibes at all. and it really fun to ride. i'm sold. this winter it goes in the house to be rebuilt, funds allowing. right now, i'm pulling off all the crap and chrome it doesnt need. chrome trinkets rattle too much.

where's the best place on the internet to buy a uniform?

Some nice lookin bikes. Funny story that kinda relates...

I pulled my little Yamaha WRR into the convenient store the other day and parked next to a couple Harleys. As I was riding up to them some bozo in a car gives me the stare and shakes his head. As I get off and am taking off my helmet he makes it a point to walk up and say "Cool, Harleys" followed by a snort/sneer at my bike. I just answer "Yep, nice lookin' bikes". I can tell that his little brain is spinning at max RPM trying to come up with something smart ass to say about my little (Japanese) dual sport when the two Harley riders come out. First thing they say is "Cool dirt bike". Cager just walks away with a scowl and I have nice conversation and smoke with Harley riders.
You can usually tell the guys who actually ride a lot because they are usually the guys who don't give a rats ass what you are riding. I wouldn't mind getting one of those Milwaukee machines myself....Someday.

2009 Harley Davidson Dirty Fatboy

No night train edition Fatboy so I made my own and call it the
Dirty Fatboy. I did the wheels, front end, bars and re-painted the tank.


A " tude" related experience - rode the KTM up to the Iron Horse Saloon and saw 2 HD riders give me the hairy eyeball look, one even said I hate that cause I pimp parked right up front. As I walked past them a buddie saw me and asked where my Harley was? Another asked how I choose what to ride? I could see the 2 jokers shrink from pre judging me as I walked in to get a cold one. I don't think true bikers judge like that I know I don't.

Our new corporate training lady told me her boyfriend had a Harley, so naturally I asked what kind. She said "a Sportster, I think".

Last Friday, she made a point of stopping by and telling me her boyfriend insisted she come by and correct her. "He actually has a Night Train". He said to say that Sportsters are girl's bikes.

I'm glad she straightened that out!

1200R Sportster

My 06 1200R Sportster. Recently took it on a weekend trip thru WV - everything from 70 mph Interstate to lots of country back roads with 15 mph (posted) turns. The bike handles it all really well.

Hey Centerline, do you have mid-controls on your Fat Bob?

Thanks!

RC - thanks, I dig how you painted your rack to match.
I did a few little mods to change the look of the bike like half moon floor boards, V&H pipes, black controls, classic rotors, lay down LED tail light, tag holder, mini mirrors, Big Sucker air cleaner. I even added a bottle opener to the solo bag just for shits (can you find it in the origional post?). When I had the power coating done I also took in most of the hardware so when I put it back together it would match - a great example is the pully and bolts - all look natural. I also used some black sign painters paint to hit any bolt that stood out (look at the bottom of the frame). Those little things make a big visual difference. When asked if it's old or new I know I hit the mark.

Notice the origional back seat has found a home as a back rest for the TW.
