    Default Sportsters Riders



    Wondering if there is a thread to organize for Sportsters folks to trade stuff, sell bike, ask technical issues or even organize outings.

    Kinda hard to find outings for sportsters as we are slower and we need to fuel up more often for rides.

    See the respond.

    Great idea, I would suggest to start a thread with a heading that says "Sporsters Riders". We can have all kind of activity like know how, how to, where to get and etc... all in one thread.

    Yeah, but if you're talking harleys... I think us sportsters are the sportiest!!!! (pun intended)
    I dunno about top speed... I backed down when i hit 160km/h after every little curve & bump started to make d front wobble (but i scare easily)
    But i'm pretty confident that we don't lose out to the big twins in acceleration... Of cos we're not talking about the drag monsters like d vrods & night rods.
    Anyone can back me up here?

    Anyways sorry about missing the point...
    I think its a great idea cos i'm slways looking to trade, buy & sell parts...
    Can't stop putting stuff on and taking it off. Heh.
    And i havent been out on group rides yet (nothing more than 3bikes anyway)....
    But i think it'll be great to ride with other sporties and check out the cool stuff the rest of you have done to your bikes!!!! (i mean forums are all about " poisoning" fellow addicts right?)

    Starting a thread like that will only ease our trouble of looking all over the others folders that what may be related to our rides. It makes our life easier too...hahaha. But 1st we need participation in this thread to keep it alive.

    I might not have the time. But I am sure we can discuss and organize. However, i do not want to create a fraction from the other Harley Riders. Except this thread can help newbies like me who do not know that the sportster is faster

    So lets just keep the thread running and then we can maybe organize our first outing... maybe just a morning ride to JB for Nasi Lemak breakfast and back? Cause I dunno how to cross custom... hahaha

    Dun worry bro!! Everything just needed a first start, it's doesn't matter who start first or take the lead.......!!!

    Anyway in my point of view, there's already a invisible fraction for other Harley's riders.....Because there's diff classes, diff models.....etc existed in our community, you might wanna try to participate in a group of roadking, glide or other big twins riders for a long ride up north with your sporty..........i will say you might ended up with disappointment. Correct me if i'm wrong....thanks readers.

    i would say honda C70 is fast too...so how do you think??

    You dunno how to cross custom..Me too??? How??? hahhahahaha ;P

    Kup kia is fast... I no argue with that.

    I dunno about factions... I havent been on any group rides yet.
    I'm keen on anything...

    But i also have phobia about crossing customs... Heard of horror stories of being swarmed by the mosquitobikes. Someone even told me that the bigger big twins even use the car lanes at customs?!?

    Why used for newbie? If your budget allows, I don't see why not a new once straight out of the showroom. Btw I'm newbie too :-)

    Guys,

    I am also a Sportster Rider. Great idea to have Sportster Club to get together for regular outings and organise rides to Malaysia/Thailand. Personally, I have been all the way to Phuket with my 1200C. Can always share experience on bikes etc.

    Haha i 2nd that... But we should start small (or rather short first)...

    My tires are due soon too, have been doing fishtails too with this wet weather.
    Agreed its dangerous & should be top priority. I got a quote from Dstreetcustoms around $500+ for avon tires front & back include install.
    Still shopping around heard Shunfu is cheap... Anyone here have experience?

    Is your concern that you might have minor "incidents" with your bike as a newbie or because you just want to try it out to see whether you like the bike?

    Second hand your overall outlay for the bike is less and sometimes if you shop around long and hard enough you might find one with low mileage, in good condition... And with mods that you like.
    But then you have to be patient.

    New you pay more but then you have the benefit/ reassurance(?!?) of the warranty & free service.
    You can also take the bike in the direction that you want with your customising.

    Either way if you notice the value of Harleys endures... You get 15-20yr old bikes that sometimes sell more than a new one. So you don't have to worry about lugi so much... Unless you need to sell it off urgently.

    Agreed its dangerous & should be top priority. I got a quote from Dstreetcustoms around $500+ for avon tires front & back include install.
    Still shopping around heard Shunfu is cheap... Anyone here have experience?

    I've got a quote from another shop for not more than $500 for avon tires front and back include install.

    Compare if it's economically cheap, drop me a msg @91802558 i can arrange for that....rest assured no hidden cost and i dun earn commission for that!!!

    But then you have to be patient.



    New you pay more but then you have the benefit/ reassurance(?!?) of the warranty & free service.
    You can also take the bike in the direction that you want with your customising.

    Either way if you notice the value of Harleys endures... You get 15-20yr old bikes that sometimes sell more than a new one. So you don't have to worry about lugi so much... Unless you need to sell it off urgently.
    Thanks for the input. Anyone riding a 48?

    Cougar, I did a Penang/Danuk/Hatyai/Songkla trip during February with someone new on a Sporster 883. No problem with the trip. I guess we all must Ride safely and ensure that we rest enough during each trip. It is also extremely important that our Bikes are in very good conditions before we go on any trip. We are infact planning another trip in the next few weeks for a day trip to Johor for seafood/Durian or a trip to KL to visit HD KL and a Shopping Complex that sells Biking accessories at extremely cheap price. You are most welcome to join us. So far, we may have 3 Sporsters and 1 Road King. Key challenge is trying to get everyone together.

    I believe it is definitely cheaper than Singapore and also lots of shops for leather goods.

    Been to HD In KL. Nothing is cheap there. Other than that other motorbike aesthetic stuff are rather cheap.

    My take to riding to JB. I think the danger is when you are alone. The time you travel is also important. My issue is my pipes. Wondering should I change back to stock but no feel.

    How about just a simple ride to SG to Senai. Have a coffee or tea and Nasi Lemak breakfast and back. If we leave at 630am at Tuas and we will be home by 1030 or 11am in time to have lunch with the family.

    Problem is can wake up or not.

    If a trip to Thailand or etc... we should arrange a support vehicle. As the company I work for has a subsidiary in Malaysia, along the way we can get support if need. But I do not think with my work currently can go to Thailand.

    If I ride to Thailand most prob.. head back by flight and transport bike back.

    Interesting post guys.

    For Blitwell and other stuff can try Twins. He has some helmets for sale.

    For buying of Harley new or old really depends on your budget and how long you ride it.

    New - Highest cost. Long term - same depreciation as old bike
    Old - Short term riding - High maintenance if buy a lemon.

    I bought a 883L 2004 model registered 2005 for a low price. Lucky thing owner was honest and did minor servicing.

    Bear in mind also the interest rate of new bikes and also ability to loan amount.

    Short term bikes with 2 years to 4 years bike might not be able to loan a lot. While brand new downpayment is low. Interest is low.

    So finally it really depends on the duration you wanna own the bike. If you want to try try only better buy used. If planning to upgrade buy used. If you love the bike and no intention to upgrade in 5 years. Buy NEW.

    My 2 cents worth.
