Hello, I am posting for the first time but I have been following these threads for 2 years. My name is Dave and I have a 2020 Sportster Roadster Xl1200 CX. In my life I have owned and ridden a Honda CB 125, A Honda XL 350, a 1973 Triumph Bonneville, a Honda NC 700 and a 2009 Harley Davidson Dyna Switchback.I had a major crash in June 2019 on my way to Yellowstone National Park on the Dyna. I hit a bull elk in the mountains near Sheridan Wyoming. The bike was totaled but I survived. It was a long recovery from the crash but I eventually came to the decision that I still wanted to ride motorcycles. I bought my Sportster in July 2020. For an around town bike and general propose bike I think a Sportster is hard to beat.

Dave, welcome to the forum family from a swamp in Michigan. Great on your recovery and taking up the “two-wheel” way once again. We’re you able to save any venison?
