Everytime I am cruising down the road this is the song that I am humming to myself.

I have been posting in the Lady's Lair for the past few weeks and within that time I have gone from being a back seat driver to a control freak in the front seat on a 2002 1200C Sportster. :D

This is a great forum and I have learned a lot just surfing through. I look forward to getting to know all of you, I have already met some great gals/guys in the lady's lair.

Now for a little history about me:
I am a mother of two with both arms sleeved (tattooed enthusiasts will understand this term). I enjoy harley's, horses, and just about anything else that will provide me with a good adrenline rush (my drug of choice). I work for a video game strategy guide publisher as a web mistress/it specialist and, well, my kids love it (free video game stuff). I look forward to a quick ride after work and becoming a weekend drifter on Friday's.

Thanks for listening and creating this incredible place to chum up with other Harley lov'n folk.

Take care . . .

GoneRiding, it's our pleasure to have you here. You have an interesting job it sounds like. I missed the video thing I guess, but I do remember pong. LOL. I know you are going to feel the freedom of the road piloting your own bike...it's a feeling hard to express in words. Glad you found us here and keep us posted on your adventures with your Harley.

Later

Thank you

Ah yes, Pong! I don't get much time to play video games and I actually don't even have a game console in my house, but, shhhh don't want my co-workers to know. :cool: I actually build web site for multiple companies including my local HOG chapter www.mcguire-hd.com/hog/index.htm however, work primarily during the day for the video game company.

I enjoy the many postings I have read thus far and especially everyones logon handle - very creative.

Thanks again.

Welcome, GoneRiding!

A 1200XLC is a fun bike. And very cool looking. If you have trouble with image vibration in the mirrors, you may want to consider: 1) shortening the mirror stems; or 2) replacing the drag bars with another type of handlebar.

Wow!

I was kinda getting use to seeing double. I will definately look into that. What I am curious about is the saddle bags, HD wanted almost $600 for the saddle bags not including hardware. I bought some over the fender saddle bags for $75. Do these flop around alot, I don't want to be distracted when riding around or on the freeway? I will upgrade to better bags if necessary but that will be a while.

Thanks for your feedback on the mirrors.

My girl Leece (huckelberry1) rode a 1200 XLC for a year. She used a set of ''throw-over" bags without any braces; however, she only used the bags occasionally. She tied the bags on with various forms of unbreakable ties, including leather straps. The "throw-overs" are available from several sources, i.e. JP Cycle Catalog? If the bags are tied-down, they won't flop around.


Man, I re-read this post today. I wasn't even drinking last night. I really need spellcheck!!! LOL

Thanks Guys/Gals

Thanks PasadenaJim: I am going to use the throw over bags for a while and will splurge later on a good stay put set.


Thanks Harley Hottie: I would enjoy seeing pictures of the horses - I will post mine as well when they get cleaned up .:p
