Hi everybody,

clocked close to 1000 km on my Bike this Week and must say: Great Ride, lots of Fun, can`t believe this is a Harley!!
Not to compare to my Brutale, but i knew this before.

Allready had Tooltime, made the Footpegs rigid ( almost ) and moved the Fork up in The Trees ( great Improvement in Handling !! ).

And here is my Wishlist for X-mas ( isn`t it tomorrow ??? ):

Stiffer Throttle Spring, it`s not easy to hold a steady Throttle - Position on rough Roads.

Exhaust, can`t hear anything, never rode such a quiet Bike.

Longer Shocks, probably 360 Öhlins would be fine.

Powercommander V, there is a lot more in this Motor, i can feel it.....

Anybody in need of a 75 Shovelhead or a 71 Bultaco??,
gotta finance these Gimmicks somehow....

Ride save, have seen some nasty things lately!

Nice list.

The PowerCommander V with autotune looks interesting but not a lot of XR1200 specific maps yet...

SuperTrapp mufflers are a great weight savings, easy to install and great sound.

I am oddly interested in the 1200X rear shock experience reports...

The stock shock lenghth is 360mm. but the 360 Ohlins have a bit more travel.
