The ultimate riding experience

Advantages: It's a Harley, Looks, Sound, Riding Position
Disadvantages: It's a Harley, Weight, Spares/Servicing costs

I have loved Harleys ever since I was small. There was something about them, that look, that sound, THAT reputation. All bad-ass bikers ride Harleys, right? Well, erm, no actually. Now I'm a grown-up (sort of) and I find the reality is somewhat different ...

XL1200S - Great

Advantages: Brand appeal, good suspension, low seat
Disadvantages: Low tank range, vibration, no fairing

I've had an XL1200S Sportster now for just under 3 months, now that it's well past the 1000m run-in period I can enjoy what it's all about. Taking the step from a 600 sports bike, to a 1200 custom was quite a change. The seating position is a welcome b ...

I have one.

Advantages: Solid old-school design
Disadvantages: not comfortable on long trips

I bought a used 2000 XL1200S that was in very nice condition. I have ridden it about 2000 miles and love it. It's a good bike for short trips at any speed, but not for sustained freeway riding. Too much wind buffeting and vibration. Very powerful, lots ...
