Took the plunge and bought a Harley

I'm dropping the coin as soon as I get tomorrow. I have been lookign for a Harley for a while now so the misses is a lil more comfortable on the back.

Had a guy come by the house yesterday on a fairly decent Sportser, but wasn't really impresed with it.

Made an appointment with a guy to look at his, drove over to see it, and instantly was gonna write him a check.

He was a lil skittish about taking a check, so tomorrow when I fly back to Houston, I'm at the airport now to go to OKC. I'm gonna swing by the bank and go pick it up.

I think I got a good deal, 2007 HD Sportster XLC, with less than 3K on the clock for 6G's. The bike is beautiful, completely chromed out, forward control, small sissy bar and crotch cushion for the misses.

I'm stoked again.

Just dont get sucked into buying 6000 bucks worth of Harley chrome parts, hats, shirts, rings, and bandannas.

Congrats on the new purchase.

Another Sportster on the site. Will be waiting to see the pics. Maybe I won't be selling mine now. My wife thinks offering to sell it was just a ploy to get a new toy anyway...

I considered a bigger bike, but to mee I couldn't justify the cost.

I'm a short and a road king would be nice, but with my short legs riding it would be like straddling a 55 gallon drum.

My wife is a tiny lil thing, 5 foot nothing, and maybe 105 pounds, carrying a twelve pack.

I considered a chopper, but my short arms and the long turning radius, I'd be rapping that out tryign to turn around in a foot ball field, it would be like standing in the middle of the road hollering,"hey look at my lil weiner", that not for me.

The bike is an 07 1200 XLC, should have enough get up and go for the two of us.

I have been looking and doing the math in my head, blue book on the bike is 58, but the blue book doesn't count all the upgraded chrom, 4" pullback risers, chrome control, forward controls, sissy bar, detachable windshield.

I think I did pretty good,

3 more hours till I fly home and pick it up.

screw the mainstream looking ghey assed chopper, the 1200 sporty will haul you and yer wife with ease, its a fun bike and later if you wanna have fun with it, a good base for HP fun if done right.
from the factory it has a rubber mount motor, bigger frame and set up than the 03 and earlier sportys, the 1200 you have has the best heads cam combo ever offered by HD, it has Buell XB heads and "W" grind cams, great street combo and the heads flow huge numbers if worked slightly. great bike, enjoy it, have fun, ride safe.

Anyone that talks about the Sportster doesn't know about HDs. I've had several 1200 Sportsters and they are awesome. That 1200 you're buying will be more power to haul you both around all day long. GREAT bike!! Good choice and congrats on the new ride!!

Post some pics dang it!!

I see you missed the joke....

Know why HD's are so expensive?

2K for the bike, and 20K for the pickup truck to haul it around.
