Sometimes it's not just utility

Post by SRO1911 » Tue Mar 19, 2019 9:56 pm

Just became the proud owner of a 2012 xl1200c.
It's not an all terrain beast or super efficient wasteland ghost - it is however a significant step in therapeutic release.
Mental health now just means being better equipped in the paw right?
Midnight blue, p.o. was going with a punisher motif, so lots more chrome than I would prefer but some deals can not be passed up.

Congrats! Hey, wasteland beast or not, motorcycles for the paw are always a great choice.

So, for a cruiser - the 72 handles pretty well off road. Hadn't planned to test it but an opportunity presented itself - as in the county rd i was on was blocked and instead of being smart and turning around I hooked it hard and held on tight. A mile of rail road right of way took me to the road I needed to be on.

I would not suggest leisure riding breaking trails- but its doable in a pinch.

I wonder if different tires would help? I know you probably can’t get off road tires but for a cruiser something other than road slicks would greatly improve trail/dirt riding.
