Scooter Porn: Storz Performance XR1200 Show Bike

Harley Davidson XR1200

I’m not a Harley guy. Their motor technology is 80 years old, their bikes shake bad enough that anything not safety wired or threadlocked down will eventually fall off and most of their engineering leaves me scratching my head. For some reason, I’ve got it bad for the XR1200, and the guys from Storz Performance aren’t helping any with their new showbike.

I want it, in a purely sexual kind of way. I’ll break it in at Deal’s Gap, running the Dragon WFO and tearing the knee armor from my trusty Aerostitch suit. I’ll ride it until my eyeballs bleed and all the fillings in my teeth rattle out. Crude, unrefined and painfully uncomfortable after an hour in the saddle? I don’t care, because it just looks so damn good. I’ve got plenty of threadlock and safety wire in the garage.

Want your XR1200 to look like this? Contact Storz Performance.

    Guess you have not ridden a Harley latley or ever. They don’t shake any more. Now go get on your plastic Rice-toy and try not to kill yourself.

      Ed, I’ve ridden Sportsters, Softails, Dynas and Glides, and they all shake (although the Glides are damn comfortable). That’s part of their character; you either like it or you don’t. I’ve also ridden Hondas, Kawasakis, Yamahas, Suzukis, Moto Guzzis, Ducatis, Buells and BMWs; have you?

      And thanks for your concern, but my “rice toy” was built in Berlin, Germany and I promise not to kill myself on it.
