REason I love the mags on my sporty
I certainly do not like the "mags" on mine - original Harley items. Dull as ditchwater, and I am planning repainting when I get my bike from New Zealand.
I have more pics but not with the new wheel. The bags are a set of medium Tourmaster Cruiser III's. They have been pretty durable and have survived 3 seasons pulling double duty on the Sporty and my KLX300r. The zippers are the week link. Also they are relatively flexible so a set of bag supports is needed. For the price I payed I can't complain but they are being replaced soon by a set of hard bags that I am building.
You sir receive all the internets for the day!
I didn't even notice that.
Cool story, Ginger Bread.
I want one with an s&s cycle 100 ci motor
My 1998 XLH-883. Ran pretty good for a "Baby Harley".
Awww crap ! Sorry about the spellin'.
Who makes that exhaust? Looks like it has better ground clearance than some of the other 2-into-1s on the market.
These were the old style Bub 7 2-1 headers from an early model Dyna glide with a Kerker pipe and my own brackets. If you have an FXR you can still buy Bub pipes for the Dyna or Supertrapp still makes the FXR pipe and can also hook you up. You need to contact Supertrapp directly as it's no longer a catalog item. I have a complete spare Supertrapp pipe in my garage, it fits about the same way..
Ordered my first Harley ever, after feeling a sudden urge to get one. Will come in some time January. With some paint and powdercoat work (mostly black), the mandatory tuning kit and Cobra's I should be all set. All my buddies, and I, used to avoid HD's like the plague and criticize their owners for being posters. Well, I converted after a test ride (of 30 minutes only due to freezing conditions!) as it put a big smile on my face. And I have to admit, I have secretly always liked the Sportsters...
However... After reading this whole thread I'm not so convinced anymore, there's so much negative comments about the brand, the brakes, the shocks, the feel, you name it.
Anyways, I'm sure I'm gonna love mine, in fact I already love my gimpshopped bike, not having ridden one single kilometer on it!
Here´s one in orange I spotted at EICMA.
blackSP is what it will be, the only orange in my garage is KTM :)
I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I think my XR1200 is imperfect but perfect for me.
I'd love to have a 2nd Sporty for more laid-back running around. Something about them connects with me. I hope you have the same reaction when you get yours.
Look at any brand specific thread and you will find people bitching about their bike, they all suck. Just go ride the wheels off it and upgrade what you want to and then you can complain about all the things that should have been done at the factory as well....
Enjoy your new bike.
Truer words were never spoken. I ride a KLR, a XR1200, and a BMW GS Adv. lol Pig, Pigger, Piggest. I love the idea of everybody hating on my bikes.
Ride the snot out of it.
True, I will ride it like the wind as soon as I have it...
Thanks for the encouraging words!
