      bullet proof, no. But more durable by far than than many "other" bikes out there. The guy across the street is on his second clutch in a honda 750.
      Mine is like new after nearly 12k miles, and his just rolled over 7k.......HHHmmmm

            I wanted a light fast bike,,a toy,,my sporty fits the bill,,also fits in my garage.
            I drive for a living and work odd hours,,I'm a weekend rider.
            If I was able to figure out how to make the time for a proper Tour,,and come up with the funds
            I think I could do 400+ miles a day,,as long as I had ben gay and booze handy at the end of the day,,lol
            Don't get me wrong Frank If I had the funds for a second bike It would be a RK or a Bob. Did you notice I said "Second Bike"
            I'm a workin stiff,,If my wheels ain't turnin I'm not earning. So for the amount of riding I can find the time for My Roadster
            Is just right for me... for now,,,Till I can win the Lottery,,,and retire,,,and Ride cross country,,,,,,,,Oh shit I was dreamin again,,,

              Hey man, once I get my seat straightened out we need to talk...
              My wife and kids are encouraging me to go to HERDSTOCK '11.
              They've all been travellin' around on long softball tourneys without me this year (Mom and 17 yr old left for another one in Miami this morning already... gone 'til Monday). They're all sayin' I oughta go to Branson (they were in OK city just two weekends ago).

              Wanna ride it?
              Wanna split the cost of a trailer and gas? You've got the truck...
              I'd be up for attempting the ride, but it'll be hard work on the li'l Sporties.

                I have a 80 Sporty, original clutch, works great. Actually shifts quieter and smoother than my 08.
                I believe this is bullet proof. Just keeps on tick'n...........
                Those who say it can't be done should get in the way of those doing it.

                  Ya know, an old guy I worked with used to tell me all the time. "Boy, ya buy what ya wanna fix"

                  The sporty is, what it is.....A great machine !! Sure, it's no tour bike, and will run it's guts out keepin up with the big twins out on the road. But put it back in it's element, around city streets, or on a twisty canyon road, and it'll run with the best of them. By far the Sportster rings out as the grass roots Harley that remains pretty much unchanged, since it's humble beginning so many years ago.

                  Many people will knock down the sporty as a "little" bike, or a "girl" bike, and thats fine with me. I have nothing to prove to those salty old riders who build garage queens, and spend all their time polishing the chrome parts, because I know something they have long since forgotten about. And that, simply put, is the thrill of sitting down on what is perhaps the greatest machine ever built. A bare bones, no frills, Harley Davidson Sportster. The bike holds more records than can ever be broken, sits in the motorcycle hall of fame, and rolls more miles than any other bike simply by shear numbers.

                  Call it what you like, but I believe that any true motorcycle rider, who really believes what they say about dedication, has either owned a sportster, or "will" own a sportster.

                  I love the saying " I didnt buy a sportster because I wanted a harley, I bought a harley because I wanted a sportster".

                  You simply cant take away the truth. And the truth is this. The sportster was the first, and will be the last "TRUE" Harley Davidson Motorcycle....IMHO
                  Everything else, is Icing on the cake..........g

                    I like the Sportys. I use my XR1200 for commuting because it's more nimble and I feel like I can ride it better than the BTs, which I'm still getting used to. And I have a soft spot in my heart for my 04 XL1200R since it was my first H-D -- well not exactly -- I had a 2003 Buell XB9S Lightning first.

                      I also read somewhere that the Sportster is the longest produced model of any motorcycle: 53 years

                        Yeah If I had the funds and could get three weeks off work I'd ride my 1200 to Sturgis from Florida.
                        5 to 6 days to get there,350 to 450 miles a day, rest a day,,Ride an hangout the whole week,,
                        Then rent a van or even a small ramped moving box truck and Haul ass home in 3 or 4 days..
                        My Sporster is fine on the Interstates,, 75 t0 80 mph,,, Thats the bikes sweet spot.
                        Only thing left to figure out Is my pain in the palm of my hands after a few hours ridin.
                        Thicker softer grips maybe,,,Also think one or two inches of pull back will cure it..not shure yet.

                            Well thanks. But they really aren't much -- all completely stock. I sold the XB9S this year and I sort of wish I hadn't.
