My 1st Motorcycle!

September 21st, 2012 10:56 am EDT

Just picked up my first bike, a 2013 Harley-Davidson Sportster XL1200C in Black Denim. 

So far, the only changes from stock (not many and all were done by the dealer):

Black Screaming Eagle Slip-Ons with Black Buckshot Exhaust Shields

Chrome Horn Cover replaced with a Black one (not a big fan of chrome)

Stock Speedo replaced with a Combo Digital Speedo / Analog Tach

Fuel Sensor Kit

This being my 1st bike and all I really wanted to know what RPM's I'm shifting at and the added benefit of seeing what gear I'm in and seeing the fuel level is really sweet. 

I drove it home last night in lots of traffic on busy roads and was nervous as hell for the first mile or so. This is the 1st time I've ridden other than taking the course to get my Motorcycle Endorsement. I've wanted a Sportster since I was a kid and finally decided to do something about it. The bike is awesome and I'm looking forward to putting many a mile on it: )

    Thanks Jayne. I love it even more than I thought I would. It's a blast to ride and the sound is akin to music. Even took it out last night in the pouring rain and had a blast: )
