Yeah, when you're the most successful club in the history of German football, everyone wants a bite of ya Hey, I see you have a Sporty 1200, how do you like that? I was in the market for a new-to-me bike even before I sold my TL-S and I knew I wanted another twin. I was looking at R1100Rs and Sporty 1200s, then ended up with the R1100S. Almost bought a nice 883 punched out to 1.2L

...the sporty is a fun ride, Miran!

...always a blast to go squid hunting on... I have taken a few things off and a few other things onto the bike and as a result it's a little louder and a little faster.

Mine is the factory "go fast" model and for a harley, it is a fun ride... of course, it has the fully adjustable front suspension and the adjustable gas shocks in the rear and for a 550+ pound iron horse, she's not bad at all... love the torque. It even leans at reasonable angles before stuff starts griding really hard... and the two front disks will stop the bike nicely, though with A LOT more effort than what you might be used to from a modern sport bike...

As you can see, I have twins in almost every configuration... flat, L, V and I am looking at a parallel twin right now... trying to buy my old Laverda back... with little success so far.

I would LOVE to have that bike back... bought it brand new in 1978 and it has been through 3 sets of hands at this point... still running strong and looking great!


As for Bayern... they are the single most arrogant club in the History of German soccer as well, that might be more the reason for everyone wanting to take a bite...

who cares about oil!
we want to know about tire pressures.
none of us know anything about that.
we're all totally ignorant. matter of fact, we regularly mail the one and only tire gauge we have from guy to guy, even though most of us know that the factory sets tire pressure when they build the bike, so there's really no reason to ever check.

Nope, not in mine there isn't... there solid rubber... makes the bike nice and bouncy!

I heard if you fill the tires with helium, it decreases your curb weight.

if you fill tires with helium it will eat through the rubber.

I'll try to find that exact same spot and park my 11S there, and then we can compare
