Default The Inspiration for the XR1200? Barns Stormer

Could this have been the inspiration for the XR1200?

This was built in the spring of 2006 by a local HD Dealer and some may even like it more than the new XR1200 design.

I know it may be a bit of a stretch that it inspired the XR1200, more likely a copy of the Storz

Check out the "Barns Stormer" in my Gallery and you decide!

Title is more less an attention grabber Bart. Come on, I've been reading this board for almost a year now, that must mean I have my Sportster History pretty much up to date now.

When do people stop considering members "newbies" around here?

No problem at all, I do it quite often too.

Now if I can only get HER to forgive me!

Default Now that's an XR

Now that's what I call an XR. If any thing deserves the XR moniker, it's the S&S prototype bike pictured on Kev's post.

Nice write up on the S&S three cam engine in the latest Cycle World. The sporty bike looks way too long to be effective though, still a comendable effort!


Is that the new Dyna mag on the back, soon to be on my Roadster?

Now that's gonna be AWESOME!

Yeah, don't get me wrong, I think that looks AWESOME and I'm excited about S&S taking those engineering steps to develop a non-Harley V-twin, but I don't know the wheelbase and weight on that bike pictured, and I suspect it would be a bit long and quite possibly heavy too.

I still like it at first glance though.
