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

Thanks for the information. Added my location. I'm old and the format on this site is a little different so it will take me a while to get the hang of it. the XLH1200S is in good shape, only 4,000 miles when I found it; a couple of new tires, 2 hole fluid change and brake fluid flush and all is good. Has Screamin Eagle mufflers, breather kit and jet kit on it, runs and idles well. Was a good find and the guy who had it did not really know what he had. I'll get a picture up soon. Thanks again.

You're very welcome...

Here's the Pennsylvania Sub-group on the forum:
http://xlforum.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=117

My 'KT - 2018' thread in that group has some pics of my rides this year - but my ride report link in my signature leads to my website with all my ride reports from South Central PA...

Maybe we'll get a chance to share some road together... There's some nice countryside east of you...

Yeah I have rode most all the roads east of me, got to be careful on Sundays as there are lots of buggies. Along with the fragrant smell of the dairy-aire lol

For a while I was planning routes that took me to covered bridges, that was fun sometimes finding them.

I worked for a while in Chambersburg so all the roads from there, through Gettysburg and around have been ridden.

A good ride is route 74 North through Carlisle, up to 849, over to the river and then find some back roads back to York.

Appreciate the info on the sub group. Do not think I will ride the Sporty more than a 100 miles. Got the Electra Glide Classic for longer ride.
