Simple I have been off & on motorcycles most my life the thing is I never got the Harley thing till NOW. I was in the hunt for a new ride when I saw a 04 XL1200C with 7740 miles & a few extras ( I did the math those extra's were 2k) all for 6k. Im not stupid I had it home within 40mins. I didnt BS the guy gave him what he wanted. One ride I was done...I have had everything from Busa's to GSXR600's. But nothing felt like this. The funny thing is I rented a RoadKing a year ago... nice but just didnt get me. So here I am now a Harley-Sportster guy in the making.
