Hello everyone, name's Dave and I take delivery on a black XR 1200 tomorrow. I got to ride one at Bike Week and then again when the demo fleet came to town a few weeks ago.

I've been riding Harley touring bikes for years, currently own an 09 Ultra and have ridden with the local HOG chapter for years. I've also had a sport or sport touring bike in the garage as I also ride with a local sport bike group that likes to take off to East TN, NC, Ark and MO for some mountain fun. I also belong to the MSTA formerly know as HSTA, a national sport touring group.

I traded a 08 Roadster in on the XR. I bought the Roadster about a month before Harley announced they would be bringing the XR to the states. I knew then that I'd be getting the XR as soon as I could swing it with the wife. The Roadster was fine for commuting but just couldn't hang with my sport bike friends in the mountains. The XR feels like a different matter, almost as fast as the 1200 Bandit I used to ride.
