So... You know how the story goes... My wonderful wife has naturally taken an interest in Motorcycles over the past few years of hanging in the garage while I try and make something street worthy out of mix matched parts that I find, and partially due to the fact that it's pretty much all I talk about. Shockingly, she mentioned a few weeks ago that she'd like to start riding on her own. That is actually how the Blue rigid I build not to long ago came to be, but that's another story I can share later. Since I had heard that song before, I passed it off as her just trying to add to the conversation. Turns out she meant it this time and signed herself up for the Riders safety course at our Local HD dealer. Now its time to find her a scoot of her own!
So I set out to find her a FXR. I hear about how good they handle, lower seat height, etc. and like the reliability of an Evo. After some phone calls to some old buddies of mine, I hear about this pretty decent FXR on Craigslist. I got my good friend Tony to come a long so we could have a good look at the girl and struck a deal with the seller. SOB didn't know what he had and let it go for a price in my favor. So here she is... Finally got around to taking a few pics as she was when I got her. More Pics to follow as I make a few necessary modifications.
This thing is a blast to ride! Not like the Shovel I ride, but more like a rocket that begs you to hammer down and blast past every car you see!
