Greetings!

Forum member "sprink" pointed me towards this forum, and I thought I should introduce myself before I start posting. I'm in my second season of riding and I'm always looking for more seasoned riders to ride with / learn from.

Scooter-wise my primary ride is a 2012 H-D XR1200x (LOVE this bike!). I've also got a 2013 H-D Sportster Hugger to wrench on while I work my way through Washtenaw Community College's Motorcycle Service Technology program.

Hope to ride with you soon!

-Fred.

Welcome! I didn't know you had an XR! Never saw one that wasn't parked at the show or dealer. Looking forward to seeing one on the road.

Ha! For that matter, I've never seen another XR1200 in the wild either!

I was just checking out the XLforum WV trip pics and vids and thought to myself, "they really need an XR in that crowd to change things up!" Still absolutely bummed that things didn't work out for me joining the Michigan posse this year. Oh well. Taking that Thursday off would have cost me the "A" that I just got in my machining class today. And having that weekend free allowed me to visit and old friend who just bought his first Sporty last month and we put some good miles on both of our bikes.

You'll get to see my XR one of these days, sprink.

Yes, those are beehives in the back of the photo.

Pre-XR. Showing off my toys.

As I look at these pics (from last year) I realized that I don't have pics of my mods. The XR now has a fly shield, luggage rack, and Buell shifter. The Hugger has a Mustang seat (as seen in the last pic) and different handle bars. Tomorrow the Hugger gets a new air cleaner. I've also got 1250 jugs to replace the 883 jugs, but I haven't gotten around to that project, yet.

Just like it. Almost identical. Only with a few thousand more miles, a Buell shifter (mod), and a little bit dirtier.

LOL

Just got it home after a LONG day on the road. Fun, but a whole different world that riding on two wheels.
