I got the bike in 2009 with 4 miles on it. Put 26k miles on it in a little under two years. In may of 2011 I was side swiped on the interstate, hit the concrete construction guard rail, sped off and rear ended an SUV. Got thrown over the top of the SUV and then got hit by said SUV because she didn't stop fast enough. Bike was totaled. RIP.
2009 Harley Davidson 1200 Sportster (Black)
Added a quick detach windshield shortly after it became a commuter bike. Not many pleasure rides.
Added a sissy bar so the wife could go with me. She felt comfortable after I only had a few months experience under my belt.
