Name is Dan I hail from Kalamazoo Michigan and have owned my 2001 Sporty 1200 Custom for a little over 2 years and love it. In the summer of 2010 I took it on a road trip from Kalamazoo to LA and back, what a life changing experience. And o think my friends told me I was crazy.. yeah maybe.
Been riding most all my life, dirt as a kid and then some 30 years ago bought a 1957 Triumph which I still have and ride from time to time. Did a stint on a crotch rocket, yep it was fast and fun but better left to the young guys.
