TimNY wants to know Dino or Syn?

I recently sold my XL Sportster and picked up an 09 XR . I
can't tell you how happy I am with the bike. Most fun on two wheels I've had in a while. I can't get enough seat time on it.
The handeling and performance is unbelivable.
If you can take a test ride on this model .I think HD is discontinuing the XR in 2013. But there are plenty of used ones out there also .

I have an early 2008 and very pleased with it.
Strange move by H-D that they discontinue the XR for 2013.Avoid the bio-fuel. Mine is pinging on 95, runs flawless on 98 octane.

Go figure - Harley guys don't like them .

I also own a 2009 XR1200. excellent bike, easy to handle and quick to boost. It can also be a sport/tourer. I've taken mine from Dallas to Pensacola...so it can perform double duty when called. try
this is a very good web site for xr1200 owners...
