Hey Centerline

You should offer that first pic for the sign in page pics... Awesome photo. I haven't seen too many pics of guys scraping (or damn near) pegs on big ol' Harleys. Semper Fidelis

Centerline - nice lean angle.

CL - love the color - I looked a the Fat Bob but obviously settled on the Fatboy. I was not a fan of the back fender - I have that style fender on my VMax and wanted a full one, but I like how it shows off that fat rear tire. With those fenders you can see much more meat than on the Fatboy. I dig the 2-1 - was thining of that but did not think it would go with the old school look I was going for. Very nice bike you got there.

Agreed! That photo is beautiful. I just nominated it for front page status.

I'm glad she straightened that out!
So, is the XR1200 a girl's bike too? 'Cause I wouldn't want to get a guy's bike by mistake, now.


XR1200...........


Local dealer has them in orange and black. But they are asking $700 over MSRP, which seems a bit ridiculous in this economy.

I'm out of Toronto, Canada. (and I filled in my profile)

Good luck with your IB ride. I did my first a couple of months ago.. 1000 miles around the lower Great Lakes. Also did the Spank 2009 rally in Arkansas Read about it.

I'm also entered into the Not Superman Rally in July. 54 hours of fun out of Missouri. I'm one of only 2 Harley riders entered out of 50 or so bikes.

Great report! The ride next week is out of a Harley shop so I expect there will be more Harleys than mine. And since mine is a V-Rod, and not a 'proper' Harley, who knows, it may well be the only V-Rod entered.

My 3 gallon TourTank is an essential reason I can even consider the IB. That and the AirHawk seat cushion.
