Orange and black

Coming home on 66 West this evening, I got a wave from a fellow two-wheeler a few lanes to my left. After a triple-take, I realized I had the pleasure of beholding Harley's XR1200.

This bike was initially released in Europe only (go figure), but HD finally brought it to the US recently. When I first read motorcycle.com's review, I was pretty excited about the first modern Harley I actually wanted to ride!

And seeing the machine on the road has piqued my interest once again. It's a darn cool looking bike, with it's in-your-face orange and swept-up, dual exhaust. I may have to happen into the local dealership to see if they've got one on the floor.
