Cool Bike
By Nathan Perrine(Owner), Oct. 7, 2008
Purchased an 09 XL1200 Nightster about a month ago. Upon first glance this model got my blood pumping on looks alone. The low seat and blacked out flat paint look is definitley my style.

Love this Bike

Everything about this bike screams 'chill out', you just cruise along surrounded by the most blissful engine notes without a care in the world. I've been riding the thing through all...

Give it a 10
By Craig Carlile(Owner), Dec. 9, 2008
Before leaving for Iraq i walked into the dealership and was immediately impressed with the Nightster. It's dark character and old school looks had me hooked. When i returned state side my wife bought the bike as a gift. Almost everywhere i go it turns heads and i get compliments and questions about... Read Full Review
