Fish And Chips HD: 2009 Harley Davidson Sportster XR1200 Race Bike


xr right

I'll come clean; to me, this is about as exciting has adding Ohlins and Termignoni's to a shopping cart but RSBFS has taught me to appreciated all variations of sport bikes. Having read reader comments I know the RSBFS masses are a varied bunch with wide ranging tastes. This XR1200 is residing over in the U.K., enjoying retirement after its' days on the track there.

The seller explains what we have here:

A very collectible investment !!

THIS BIKE WON H/D XR1200 challenge which televised and ran on the back of British super bike !!!!!

WHY MAKE SOMETHING LOOK THE PART WHEN YOU CAN HAVE THE REAL THING ?

xr termsThat is a first for my eyes; Termignoni exhausts on a Harley. That might get your ass kicked in certain crowds.

xr tank
Now who the hell is Jimbo? Has to be a mechanic with a name like that.

xr forks

That is pretty darn stout with an assist from Ohlins if she gets the shakes.

  • owner seems to have OCD !!!! really likes to emphasize the punctuation!!! maybe its a UK thing??? anyway, nice to see some other stuff on RSBFS!!!

  • I hate Harleys, but I’d ride that.

  • Don’t like Harley’s, I had an XR750 which I did like. What do you race these against? must be other Harleys because I don’t think it could ever be competitive against anything else, too heavy and low horsepower, CG looks too high also.

  • I like XR750’s, which I didn’t have, kind of don’t like Harleys, which I don’t have. Good guess, Jimbo- it’s a Vance&Hines sponsored XR1200 series. You know your racing, sir.

  • The only bikes I like, happen to be race bikes, even though I stopped racing 30 years ago and I don’t follow the race scene. I don’t like Harleys, but maybe I would like this one. If someone asked me to ride it, answer; Please!
