Gimme more. dude!
At least 5 new threads with the new Sportster S everyday !

Even 48 didn't get so much exposure, at least not being posted repeatedly by the same person.
Don't know if you are paid to post or just having wet dream come true, either case, it is getting annoying.

I stopped at the local Moto Guzzi dealer. I think the V7 is right for me. Classic form-follows-function design, good all-around usability and easy maintenance. You know, they used to make Sportsters like that, with actual fenders, enough cornering clearance to turn onto a side street without beveling your mufflers and pegs that let you stand up over railroads tracks so you don't have to go 2 mph like some 90 year old grandma in her aged Buick.

I suppose if you live in an urban hellscape, then a heavy dosage of cynical and contrived styling, compromised chassis dynamics combined with lots of power to race light to light a block at a time would be a good way to avoid acknowledging the endless horror and meaninglessness of one's life.

But, if for some odd reason they do decide to release something with that great motor that is functional, actually sporty, not f@#$@@&&@ lowered that doesn't look like a million failed (and now for sale on craigslist) bobber projects started by plaid flannel, wearin' ripped open earlobed, tattoo-coated conformists, then maybe it would be right for me.

Otherwise, no.

A 260. Early small-bumper car.

It just sits in the garage and provided an idea for a forum handle. The 2000 XLH on the other hand gets used.

You have voluntarily entered this particular section of SPORTSTER S.
Hence the name XL FORUM. This bike is NOT an XL. It is a RH1250S so it best go to an RH FORUM. Maybe it's a good idea to start your very own rhforum.net.
https://www.rhforum.net/ is still available, so knock yerself out.
