In Defense of the Sportster, 1200 cc’s of Luxury.

In Uncategorized on September 19, 2014 at 11:39 pm

The first one I had, was a 1974, Harley Davidson, 1000 cc, Model XLCH- Sportster.  It was a total basket case, and probably still is to this day, I sold it to a friend- he passed away, shorty after getting it road worthy again.  Today, I enjoy the luxury of a 1998, 1200 cc XLH- Evolution, Sportster with only 19,000 miles on the odometer.  In the culture of Harley-Davidson, a Sportster model XLH or XLCH is only considered “Half a Harley,” “The Old Ladies Bike,” or “Just a Sporty.”  I beg to differ.  The origin of the XLCH is and was Harley’s only racing motorcycle.  It has true heart and soul.  It is nimble through the gears and handles well, it is responsive and quick- for a cruiser!  I like sport touring motorcycles and the Spostster fits the bill.  On the drag way or on that long road, the Harley Davidson Sportster model is the only one for me!
