The Bike

This is the 2009 Harley Davidson XR-1200 in all her glory.  One of the coolest bikes Harley ever made.  Simply put……  this is a racing bike. (Even though I am touring with it.)  It has Vance Hines Widow Racing Pipes and of course It also has been equipped with a Vance and Hines Fuel Pack and calibrated for optimum performance.  She hauls ass in the straight away but she really shines in the corners and blazing through twisties like a hot knife to butter. It is the embodiment of freedom and wanting to ride the open roads.  No frills, just power and agility.  17883062_449173252081753_8483754337493843968_n(1)

It has an isolation-mounted XL Evolution 1200 cc V-Twin Engine, electronic sequential port fuel injection, an electronically controlled active intake system (and modified thanks to the Fuel Pack), Precision oil cooled cylinder heads, an Oil cooler, Sport tuned Show a suspension with inverted 43 mm front forks and pre-load adjustable twin rear shock absorbers (adjusted for me specifically).  To keep weight down on the bike It has a plastic 3.5 gal gas tank and cover an aluminum swing arm and nothing else that is not necessary for the bike.  It is a joy to ride!
