Sportster preview but one more week for the full monty :)

Finally, my 2013 Sportster 1200c is in but it needs a bit more work before they delivery it to my garage (snow, cold, road salt...).

I'm a happy man, finally my KTM 690 Enduro gets a mate!

All the paint work is done, the powder coat stuff comes in on Monday. Cobra headers are in, so is the tuning kit, the windshield, swingarm bag and the rest of it.

I'm gonna have an all black bike once more!

Here it is guys, my XL1200C Special.
In the sun, during a 8km (!) winter ride.
Didn't want to catch any road salt so it was a short but sweet first ride :)

Nicely kitted, congrats! Sporty's are a hoot and HD should add R and/or XR type bits to their custom build menu.

Good luck with her!

I agree! I can see people going nuts with custom XRs.
