Sportsters Riders


Recommended Posts

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 :p

 

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?!?

Hi guys, do u guys think it's better for a newbie to get a second hand sportster to try out?

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 :-)
