Harley boys chime in.
On the Down Low, I'm saving up for a motorcycle for my dad, he has approximately a year and a half left which gives me an ample amount of time.
I pretended that I was considering downgrading to a vespa primavera (my dad had one in italy) and he said they were nice. I asked my dad what does he think a nice city bike would be if he had to pick one, he said "A HARLEY", I know he likes the sportster, he rode one and really looked happy. He always talks like a true married man of what "33" years now... he says "one day I'm going to buy one" but never does. My father has been very generous to my family and we always work together. He is truly my best friend even though he is a lunatic sometimes LOL.
I feel that a gift like this would be worth the saving for because I know my dad will be happy. If I bought the scooter I feel like he would enjoy it, but then again he would always say "I like harley"
So they make two models of sportsters the 883, and the 1200. What is your opinion on the two trims of sportsters. Do you think he will get tired of the 883?
Is the 1200 a bike that will be very unforgiving? I rode one and so did he several years back, I thought it felt punchy.
Scooters are boss. People make fun of them, but they have no clue how fun they are to rip around on, and the practicality of them and utility is great. This isn't for me though.
My dad is between 5 foot 3-4 and is loosing weight because of previous health conditions with his heart. He will be around 190-200 lbs at the rate he is going. I'm proud of his success.
I gotta add, POTATO POTATO POTATO POTATO ARHHHAHRRHAHRHRHRAAHHH POTATO POTATO POTATO
LOL SILLY HARLEY BOYS!
