View Full Version : New to XL's not new to Harley's
22nd January 2011, 01:14
Long story short. After riding rice grinders for years went to the local HD dealer looking for a XL. Only had a 97 Heritage Softail classic for sale. This was when you had to order any HD scoot if you wanted it new so I bought the softail. Learned a lot from that ride as it had a carb. Since then I have had a 07 FLHX and now own a 11 Electraglide classic Limited (FLHTK) all sweet rides. I traded a car for a 99 1200S and that is why I'm here. Was amazed at the performance of the 1200. Now looking to make it even better. It will out exercelerate the 103ci FLHTK. I know they are obviously different bikes, but WOW what a difference.

Thanks for all the welcomes. I have updated my profile to include where I live. Here are a couple pics of my ride. First one is when I got it, the second is after I cleaned some of the bolt on's off.

If you update it again, and put something in Location, it will show up in your posts (top right), and we won't have to go to your profile to find out where you are.
