Anyone have any idea on XR production numbers to date, and intended production run?
Thats the way i was led to believe things worked over there with the first 750.My understanding was that the first U.S. 750 were all preorders and were all orange. That would seem to indicate that the black and silver models at least, are beyond the initial 750.
Ok, so tell me. Is this true? I have an orange one. But, was under the impression that all the USA was going to receive 750. Is this not true? Only 750 orange ones? Where can I find more info on this?My understanding was that the first U.S. 750 were all preorders and were all orange. That would seem to indicate that the black and silver models at least, are beyond the initial 750.
I think the first 750 pre orders were a toe dipping exercise just to make sure the model would sell in the US. From what I have heard the XR1200 is one of the best selling H-D models worldwide at the moment. I don't have figures, just anecdotal evidence from dealers and people 'in the know' as it were.But, was under the impression that all the USA was going to receive 750. Is this not true?
We know about it, as a matter of fact most of us are on it....And i really dont have a clue what its all about, the guy that has been compiling it posts on here.They are compiling a list (on another non-XR only forum) of each XR's last six VIN numbers, where the owner lives and at which HD dealer they purchased it from.
What trend do they intend to portend?

I had originally hoped it would take off enough, and get enough participation, that it might be useful for XR1200 riders meeting up, getting together, etc. in different parts of the country. It has sort of fizzled out a bit over there (though it got a new posted "list" member today, oddly enough), and there never seemed to be much interest in starting another such list here so I didn't start a similar "list"."Sort of a head count, roll call, owner's list, etc. thread. This way we can keep track of those who already have one but also keep an ongoing, running count of those who have actually bought one. I know a lot of you folks out there want one, but it might be helpful to actually have a thread containing just those who actually have purchased an XR1200 - i.e. it can start lists for XR rides, trading parts or dealer info specific to XR's, etc."
I guess thats the one this I don't understand about this site. If there is, was, or needs to to be a "registry". Why do we not have one on this site? I'd like to see a separate section here where we can. Noting (voluntary) year, color, location, bike number (or just the ending numbers)....Since then I've noticed on other owners group sites, whether it be rare automobiles or motorcycles, there is always a "registery"...
F2Titan, that's a fair comment....I would like to have a registry here and I've struggled with it for some ethical reasons....(which rarely happens with me )...
1) I feel like the "list" or registry is really Dallara's deal...he started it, has troubled himself to care and feed it, and pretty much owns it in my opinion. I wouldn't screw with his deal.
2) The list was started on XLForums...and we've already had discussions about the ethics of just ripping something from another site and posting it here...especially without crediting the original author and site. The people who gave permisssion for Dallara to list their ownership info on XLForums may not appreciate having their info moved around...I know we can do it but for some reason it seems a little sensitive to me.....
I'd love to see a full registry here along with a google map as you suggest. I think it'd be very cool. I just dunno, dude.....we'll let it simmer, the correct path will make itself apparent....(very Zen, huh?)
