Seeing the Sportster above really makes me want to keep mine, instead of looking for something else.

This, to me, is just about the most perfect looking bike ever. I will sell my Ninja 250 and get one in this wondrous orange, by Grabthar's Hammer i will!

Maybe they are lift blocks installed backward...


Jokes aside the xl forum had a few guys who did that to life cafe bikes for more cornering clearance.

Witness: Your Sportster looks like it's done some serious traveling.

What brand is the faring you put on it, and how well does it work?

I just did a 2 week 5000 mile return trip to the west, the fairing is Arlen Ness, and the bags are HD

The fairing works, keeps the wind blast off the chest, of course there is a little more wind noise at the helmet.

The bags are removable and lockable, but really a little small for a trip such as this.

No such thing. It's an Iron.

As I have both this, and a 250 Ninja , I would advise, if at all possible, hanging on to the wee scooter.

They are pretty much on opposite ends of the spectrum and the Ninja will provide you with joys that can not be duplicated
on the Sporty. Twisty mountain roads come immediately to mind.
