I have said quite a few times that there isn’t a Harley that I would want to ride. They just generally aren’t my thing.
So I was reading the June edition of Rider magazine (which by the way has an awesome 5 day ride plan for going from Danbury CT all the way up to Smugglers Notch in VT) and they had a review of the Sportster XR1200. I hate to say it, but I think this is definitly my style.
So this is one of the bikes, along with the Ducati 1098, I’m thinking about in the future when my skill out performs the abilities of my FZ6R, and of course when my finances permit
What are your guys (and gals) dream bikes for the future?June 19, 2009 at 7:28 pm #19951CandiceParticipant
My dream bike is the Triumph Bonneville SE in BLUE. Same here, when finances permit. When will that be I ask myself????June 19, 2009 at 7:57 pm #19953ranetteParticipant
I live 6 miles down the road from Smuggler’s Notch so that tour would have passed right by me. Saw an XR1200 on the road for the first time a few days ago. It did look nice, I would have gone up to the guy and asked him about it, but my wife was with me and I didn’t want to motorcycle geek her out.
They started to release a few of the XR1200’s right about the time I was shopping for my Ducati. Along with the fact that I couldn’t have gotten one anywhere near the price of my bike, which was new but was a leftover ’07, I was put off by the extra 150 lbs that the Harley weighs. But yeah, if there were a Harley that I could see myself on that would be it.
As many know I kind of went against conventional wisdom and bought one of my dream bikes as my first bike. As for my current fantasy, it’s not available in North America. I posted the link in another thread, but I never get tired of looking at this bike. It’s a Moto Guzzi Griso 8V Special edition
