A good Harley

I rode an XR-1200, handled quite nice, crap slow, vibrated like a washing machine and was 200 lbs too heavy, so this one is £15,000?, are they mad?, buy an old Bandit 1200 for a grand, carbon wheels and a mild tune and run rings around those underpowered and overpriced Harley's sitting pretty outside the fish and chip shop, nuff said?

Harris Harley XR1200

Not everyone wants to go at warp speed everywhere, and that is why bikes like the XR1200 & Buells are a good punt. Yes they do vibrate like washing machines, but that is part of their character. I,ve owned GSXR'S Z1000'S Superduke R , Etc Etc, And they have all been traded in . But I will never get rid of my Buell X1 White Lightening because it's the only one with character . Anyway, when out on rides it keeps up easily with the race reps around the twisties, which is real riding anyway ! Where's the glory in blasting your mates away in a straight line on your 180BHP Hayabusa down the dual carriageway anyway ? Been there, Done that !

Hot Harley

I bought a standard one of these as an ex Demo and loved it.  So much so that I traded it in for a new one.  They are great fun....and that's why Neevesy loved this suped up version.  The sensitive steering he spoke about will partly be caused by the dymag wheels, which use a 17" front, rather than the stock 18" in order to make the bike quicker steering for the race series, and allow more tyre options.  I'll be contacting harris about some of the bits, because the stock bike, while great fun, does have scope for improvement and I think these bikes are worth the effort.
