so yea, ive been ignoring this forum and the truck for a bit, and heres why...

ive always wanted to ride, increasingly so in recent years. my fathers ridden for years but i never bit the bullet untill now.

Picked up a 1997 XL 1200C Sportster recently and even though spring hasnt fully sprung ive been ridding the pants off it

Looks great! Great bike with all sorts of possibilities - - luggage for long distance cruising, go-fast options for speed, some people even (attempt to) make dual sports out of them. . .

Be sure to get some training, the MSF Basic and Advanced Riders Courses are quite good.

Ride Safe.
