That may be why yours had a left side shift.

Just picked up my first Sporty (and Harley for that matter) this afternoon. Man, I get it now...this thing is a blast! At the risk of being premature, this is my 7th bike, and I've never felt quite this way about a motorcycle before. Couldn't resist riding the tank dry this evening.


Since I bought it right down the street in the neighborhood, I let my son ride back to the house. This was his first ride ever and I don't think I topped 15 mph. He loved it! Mommy's helmet is a bit big. We will need to go shopping for a complete outfit before he goes anywhere else.




Specifics: 1997 XL1200C with about 16k miles. I am the third owner since new, and it looks even better in person.

that is a fantastic picture. you need to save that pic somewhere safe, or print it and keep it in an album. that photo reminds me a lot of my dad and me, but i don't have any photos. i wish i did.

Believe me, he won't.

My first ride on a motorcycle is the clearest memory I have of my early childhood.

Thank you for the advice. I will make a point to do exactly that. When I'm old and broken, he can tell his kids this is how Grandpa used to be.
