1999 Sportster 1200 Custom

Nothing real special - just a 1999 Sportster 1200 Custom owned by a woman. This is the one and only bike I've ever owned (I just learned how to ride in late 1998 at the age of 29). I insisted on the bags when I purchased the bike knowing I would need them to hold my stuff (purse, rain gear...). The first year I rode, I put on about 3,000 miles, not bad for a beginner! Last year I rode more than 6,000 miles. My goal this year is to ride 12,000 miles. All this is done mostly using my bike as my daily transportation. My husband and I do take mini trips and we do plan on at leat 1 long trip this year. As long as the temperature is above 35 degrees, I ride...rain or shine. The bags have been used for everything. Change of clothes and shoes, light grocery shopping, bringing home the new shocks for my husbands bike, 2 liter of Coke Cola, lunch, bee sting/first aid kit and I always keep the rain gear at hand. The luggage rack comes in handy when I need to pick up large items such as a 25# bag of dog food. All in all, just your average bike and average woman rider that Rides to Work everyday! Merry Nemeth
