Warning! Fat people are harder to kidnap.
I am really glad to have this forum to talk about our bikes. It is nice to not have to wade through talking about forward shifter science on an 883. Rock on XR riders!!! Later,
Dan, I have felt the same way....but I got over it. I even got flamed on XLForum a few weeks back when I posted a remark saying some XR posters treated other sporty owners the same way big twin owners treated sporty guys in general. That apparently touched a nerve or two .Hey hey hey! Let's not get all "Elite" on our sporty brethern now! I still frequent the XL place daily. Having taken ownership of my '04 1200C less than 6 mos. before my XR.
I am still in a knowledge download on that bike. Yes, we don't need chrome farkles on our XR's, but we are still sportster owners just the same. I guess I grapple with the idea that we need our own seperate website to seperate ourselves from those "other" sportster owners...
Now, because of that crack you made, Im gonna be an asshole and turn my XR into a XRTG. Whats that you say? An XR Tour Glide!!!Sorry if I ruffler a few feathers, but it was a remark made in jest. I am so opposed to the HD marketing of the XR as a touring bike, some of the accessory advertising shows their attitude. The sport rack ad says you can"maximize your touring potential" How, with a shoebox sized rack?
