Sure. The other Sportster...
They're just all good... tough to beat a rigid for lightness of being.
That Pan is beautifully proportioned.
Thanks for sharing, Kirk.
even with the 9 ft tower?
The super sissy is not my style but everything else on that scoots is pretty much tits to my eyes.
Even if you hate Harleys you have to love these.They all have that timless look that never goes out of style.
18" on back???
Yup. The Vice Grip MC guys are mainly concerned with building period correct 60's/70's Choppers... But they ride the piss out of 'em. Love riding with these guys when I'm in the area. Great dudes.
I love the little round air cleaner, as compared to the stock "football." Where do you run the breathers though? Most small round cleaners I've seen, people run the breathers into a little pod filter that hangs underneath. Your look is much cleaner.
Damn Kirk , those bikes are sic!! Thanks for sharing.
Ok, Ok, I'm finally out of the closet now---yep I love BMWs, KTMs and now I officially tell the world- I like my HD!
Its a great around town bike, but on a recent local trip (1k in 3 days) I can tell it needs a few improvements-
- Lower bars, closer together
- A seat that places the rider a bit more forward leaning- too much pressure on tailbone as it sets
Not sure about the powdercoated air cleaner cover- kinda visually sets the engine back- may go back to a chrome SS A/C Cover- ideas?
here is my XR1200, I added the flags for memorial day
In other words, some 883 bars and built up seat?
Know the old joke about "Why are all Harley parts chromed? So you can find them at the side of the road. Note in pic above: battery cover not found....
Zip ties from now on!
its a clue.
battery cover unnecessary.
the bike is choppin' itself !
Someone was asking about tank bags on Sportys a few days ago. Here are a couple of pics of my 06 XL1200R. The tank bag looks a little odd on the Sporty, but on trips where I want to plug in a phone to charge or have quick access to stuff, it's invaluable. I've never had a problem with the magnetic surface scratching the paint - I'm usually pretty careful to keep it clean. there is a rubber handle on the front of the bag that flaps in the wind and scuffs the tank unless it tuck it inside the flap for the map sleeve. I *almost* always remember to do this...
One could build a case that keeping Maine Beautiful might start by not painting the natural beauty.
Your scoot is ready for the long haul, man. Get on it!
Yeah, that thought crossed my mind too. But this is just south of the entrance to Baxter State Park. Considering how strict they are about keeping Baxter wild, I'd say they earned the right to paint a rock.
It was mostly ready. Until it wasn't. But now it is again.
Thanks for the pics... What tank bag is that? I'm trying to figure out just how wide of one will reasonably work with a 1200R, since the tank tapers as it gets closer to the seat. Mike
