  1. Hey guys!

    2012 Harley Davidson XL1200X Sportster - Forty Eight


    Im so Freaking excited! Im getting it in about 2-3 weeks. I got tonnes of custom shite on it too!

    Thanks to everyone helping me to pick my bike. And steering me away from iron 883. I got her big sister instead. :p

    I got the pearl blue model. Ive decided her name is "Gabriella" or "Gabby Blue Eyes" :p.... I know its lame, but ive always thought gabby was a hot name. Make me think of large mamorie glands. Lol!

  8. That is one beautiful bike, but at almost 5 times my weight would have trouble just picking it up off the side stand.

    Be interested to know how you find the under bar mirrors are for checking what's behind.....oh, just realised anything would be a blur regardless of where the mirrors are.
