Default Hello from SW PA

Hey there, I'm about 45 minutes south of Pittsburgh and about 30 minutes north of Morgantown, WV. Been riding ATVs all my life, just got an 06 1200C Sportster. I've already gained a bunch of info from this site and wanted to say thanks to all of the contributing members, look forward to paying it forward when I can.

This is THE BEST Sportster Resource!

Take a minute, right now, and please put at least your state/country in the LOCATION FIELD of your profile so we can better help you when you need it... (the STATE FIELD does not show on posts)...

CLICK HERE - then scroll down to 'Additional Information' and look for the field labeled 'LOCATION' - put your information in there - It will then show on each post you make... Look for this:


Post a PICTURE of your ride... Host the image on a photo website (but not photobucket.com), get the link with the "[IMG][/IMG] tags" included & paste that directly into your posting (If you don't have the "[IMG][/IMG] tags" included, then use the Image Insert icon along with the web address of the image)...

There are various sections to the XLForum - You can pick a section that is related to your problem/info, open that section and read the sticky threads on the first page - Then post your comment in an existing thread or create a new one to get information for your specific question... For new threads, make the title specific to your problem or info...

This is the index of sections:
http://xlforum.net/forums/index.php
