Greetings,

I'm a road captain with our local H.O.G chapter, I'm in the market for an XR 1200 or 1200x but not looking to pay dealer prices.
I'm in Naples Florida but frequently in Northern Virginia (almost monthly), if anyone knows of a good deal remotely near these locations please let me know!

Thanks in advance, really enjoying the site!

If you are a HOG Road Captain, and you get an XR1200, your chapter is going to have to learn a completely different riding style. :cool:

nah, He wouldn't be disowned (I used to ride my Buell with the Orange Coast Chapter) but he will be bored riding with them.

But it comes in "Road Captain Orange", so he'll be easy to see!

Ha, nice to see an good active group on the forums!
The IBA does stand for Iron Butt Association, "Ryder" (my middle name) was taken so I added the IBA last minute it feels a little like a wet shirt but it'll do. I completed my first IBA ride recently on my Fat Boy Lo which I usually ride for anything group related, it's my daily work horse bike and usual mode of transportation. Our chapter is very friendly and accepting of anyone on a Harley so I don't fear being disowned, everyone is fairly easy going and I don't think I'd be riding with them if they were that judgmental, I'd just find other XR riders or call my sport bike friends. I've even done chapter rides on my 883 Iron and while people were amused they were not at all surprised, they know I have a soft spot for quicker and lighter bikes. There are different bikes for different jobs, for me the love just grows. I enjoy riding in all it's forms and put my energy into growing as a rider rather than strapping myself with limitations on one type of bike, I do however feel more at home if it says Harley. If I spent all my time on group rides I'd lose my mind, I ride for myself and don't have room in my bags for insecurity or a big ego. I rode an XR 1200 last week and fell in love with it, next step is putting one in the garage! I have a Kawasaki ZR-7 which will be giving up it's place to make room for XR, it just ain't the one.

AMEN Brothers!

I am VERY active in my local HOG chapter - at least they have learned NOT to make any more of those "HonDa" jokes when I happen show up on the XR...HELL, they have enough of a challenge 'keeping up' when I'm on one of my other so-called "real" H-D's!

It just means I plan and lead group rides for our local chapter, I have a good relationship with the dealership and brand loyalty, but other than that it makes no difference at all.

Welcome IBARyder,I'm a member of the Nene Vally Hog Chapter in the UK and i've found my xr no good for rideouts,it don't like slow riding,so i will have to use my heritage for group rideouts and the xr for fast fun.:scooter:
