Just signed up thanks to Midas telling me about it. When Harley brought out the XR1000 in 1983 I was excited that I could get a Street Legal XR. When I saw it at the International Cycle Show I was so disappointed that I told Willie G that they totally missed the mark and bought a Honda VT500 Ascot instead. Imagine my disappointment when they announced the X1200 some 25 years later and I can't buy one in the US. :eek: I did get a chance to ride one in Taiwan last year and that only whetted my appetite. This is in the dealer in Taiwan before I rode it.
So Finally in March 09 I rode home my Orange XR, and after 20+ Harley's and a couple of Buell's over the last 35 years I can say this has to be one of the most fun Harley's I have ever owned.

Of course those silver XRs are kinda slow but they do have a classy look about them... :)
