I write stuff. A lot of it is about cars and motorcycles.

I Want a Big Twin

Someday, in the not-too-distant future, this will be the Ex-1200C Sportster blog. because I am getting a big twin. In fact, I’m getting a Road King. I don’t know when, exactly, but I’m getting one.

I have a cunning plan.

Actually, it’s a blindingly obvious plan. I’m going to throw every spare penny I have towards paying off my Sportster. I can do e-payments through my bank, and I just put $300 on it yesterday, even though the first payment isn’t due until next month. Next payday, I’m going to throw everything I have left from this payday on it. And I’m gonna do that every payday until the bike is paid off. Every quarter, when I receive my profit sharing bonus, I’m throwing that on the bike.

If I can pay the bike off in a year, I can sell it for about 8-9k. Then, I’m gonna take that 9K, and drop it as a down payment on a Road King.

If I’m very diligent at this, I figure I can have a new Road king by next summer.

Don’t get me wrong. I love my Sporty. But there’s something about the Road King that just calls to me.

So, I’m gonna try to answer that call.

Oh, OK, I may get an Electra Glide instead.

  • The 1200 Sporty is a great bike for just hitting the mountain roads and setting the twisties on fire. I took my old Yamaha Road Star, stripped it down to just a solo-bike, and that’s what I ride it for now. I have my HD Ultra Classic for when I want to relax or take long-distance rides.
