Took this in Alabama at some off ramp gas station off of I-65 North last year on my way up to Michigan. Getting ready to do the same trip next week. Then the real fun starts. Plane ride to France with the HD and then all over Southern Europe.

Thanks man. I haven' had a ton of time to ride it yet but I have put done a couple of 200 mile days on it and it rides great! Can't wait to take it on a real road trip.

Awesome bike! The most enjoyable test ride I ever had was on the Sportster 1200. It was my (close) second choice to the Road King. The Sportster is more fun than any of the big Harleys, but it wasn't ideal for day long rides and trips to the NC mountains.

Friend of mine at work bought one last year. They look great, sound great, still turn heads... The only thing I don't like about his Sporster is that it makes my Honda look shabby when he parks next to it.

Yep. Unseasonably cold day in late May. I left Medford before sunrise and was freakin' freezing by the time I got here. Stopped to get the feeling back in my hands and snapped a couple of shots.

I guess I qualify for this tread now that I have actually ridden it.

Pulled my Father in Laws '84 FXRS out of the garage after 11 years and just started riding it last weekend.

Before:



After the clean up:



As someone else said it's culture shock but fun. Sorting the suspension now.

New ride! 2010 FLTRX, ABS, Cruise, Security, back rests, you'll have to look this up, I'd never seen one before (www.roadloc.com) and the best thing about it, it was used with 500 miles, and I bought it right! Oh, and it's the fastest color available!

Thanks man. It's definitely fun as hell to ride! It works for me for long trips since my ass is used to doing 300+ mile days on a KLX300r...Maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment.

As a Honda & Harley owner I feel both complimented and offended.

Just a basic XR.

Since this (July 27) I've flipped the mirrors, taken off the reflectors and added bungee buddies, and ridden 500 miles.

Have to change the exhaust and rear brake lever. They look like something from 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' to me.
