Have fun with your new bike once you get it!
The XB's are nice! that will be nice to ride someone else's bike too haha once we get some damn nice weather. I was also thinking of the roadster just because of price for one, dual front discs, and the 2 up option already on it, incase the girlfriend ever decides she would like to go on it. But I just can't help being so attracted to the nighster! I think I'm heading in to Privateers tomorrow after work to fill out my credit app, and see availability on a few models and work some numbers out.

Anyways, its an '06 883r, 2000km, getting the extnded warranty. approx $12000 put into bike after purchase. suspension was done, SE heads and 1200 kit installed, SE II slip ons installed and powder coated black, the rest of the pipes have header wrap. drag bars, side mounted oil pressure gauge and oil temp gauge on oil cap. Front brake upgrades and more. can't wait to get some pics up here for you guys!

Hey Altmeisner,

Welcome to the family as`they say! Sounds like your new bike had a lot of great work done to it. Did you get to take`it out for a test run? Great bike!

Now, lets hope for a decent spring!!! I went for a 60K ride on Friday and it sure felt great to get out after a long winter!

See you on the road.

Hey guys update on my bike. So I wasn't approved for credit on the used bike because I have no credit history. SO....anyways they did approve me on a brand new 1200r. This will be arriving the first week or so of April. It's coming in Vivid Black, and I'm getting some pipes and maybe drag bars thrown on along with removing heat shields on pipes and header wrapping. I'll be posting pics as soon as I take delivery!!

Not much action in Hali ever I don't find, the bike scene here is way to small...a lot of riders but not many enthusiast interested in building customs and such. I have a '72 Ironhead I'm building right now and its hard to find other home wrenching builders etc...It doesnt help that I'm younger either (23) and much of the population is much older. Ive no one I know wants to rip apart perfectly good bikes and turn them into something even better and something to call you own. Heres a pic of my progress. The engines being rebuilt right now. But I put this together in my basement this year.
heres what I started with...

here is is now...
