Harley-Davidson XR1200 | ‘Real-Time’

Weekly Podcast

Our greatest ‘real-time’ road test ever occurred on a brand new Harley-Davidson XR1200 that we borrowed from Motor Company. It is no wonder Harley-Davidson longer returns our calls…

Bill and Todd B have taken the week off to be with their families, but we wanted to give our listeners something special for Holiday Season. Earlier this year we had our road test editor from Ultimate MotorCycling.com borrowed an XR1200 from Harley-Davidson for a ‘real-time’ toad test. All this talk about it being Bill’s favorite new bike from 2009 must have gotten to Mike, because he started talking about how much the bike reminded him of his youth, and of watching Evel Knievel do wheelies and jumps on an XR750 when he was a kid.

One thing led to another and, well, you’ll have to listen to the podcast from the live radio broadcast to see what happened next. I guess it is no wonder the folks at Harley-Davidson no longer return our calls… Listen: Harley-Davidson XR1200 ‘real-time’ road test and more

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from Bill Miko, Todd B Wilson, and the rest of our staff here at The Motorcycle Radio Network.
