Hey Karma, welcome to the forum from Kootenay Lake, BC. Yup, it's a long wait till spring and riding weather, but the excitement of the new ride will help carry you through. I was in the same position myself last winter, waiting from January on to climb aboard my new Sporty.

I'm waiting for my '08 XL1200N too... 18 days to go for me.

Hang in there!

And welcome to the forum from Australia! I've been there too (waiting for a N that is...); the forum will help the time pass and give you somewhere to share your excitement when all your friends and relatives are sick of hearing how many sleeps to go ;)

Welcome from Alberta

Welcome to the Forum. Glad to have you!!!

Hope you like yours better than I like mine. Biggest mistake I ever made was buying a Nightster. Had problems with mine bottoming out after putting Progressive Shocks on it and bending the belt guard because it was hitting the reflector under the fender. Have to be careful around curves too because it drags the pegs - not much clearance. I'm too short to ride anything else in the Harley line though.

Welcome from Nashville, you're gonna dig your bike! I drag the pegs also a bit when going deep into a sharp curve, now that I'm used to it it's kind of fun. I set the stock springs to the their highest setting if going out to ride the twisties, provides the most clearance.

3rd February 2008, 14:48
I haven't had any problems except the moron that cut me off and left me no choice but to lay it down. the bike suffered scratchs and I was left with a brocken collar bone, could have been worse but the laydown was picture perfect, lets hope it never has to be employed again. enjoy the bike!

3rd February 2008, 16:48
Congrats on the new bike! Welcome to the forum, you'll like it here.

3rd February 2008, 21:23
Welcome from Texas, I have the 1200R and went with my neighbor to buy a nightster for her husband. He also has a Road King. However his son in law, one of his employees, a personal friend and myself have sporties and we have turned him to the dark side. He knew we could out run his big twin and thought it was time to get a "bar hopper". Good times are ahead as this is a pretty cool design

Welcome from the Windy City! Congrats on the Nightster...

I'm in Minot, ND, so not too far away. I too have an N that I just got in January. There have been enough days in the 40*'s that I've been out riding, but nothing consistant thats for sure. It's been a very long winter for me as well.
