what did i see?

today on my ride out, i saw something i thought id never see, a Harley that id actually like to own.

It looks a lot like the xr1200

http://bikerholic.com/2008/10/13/har...idson-xr-1200/

but it had dual high rise side by side exhausts like the RC, red springs and better stance. it also had matt black paint.

was is just an xr1200 that some guy heavily modified, or is there another real nice harley like this that they made? an R version perhaps?

Maybe a V-Rod, although they don't look TOO similar to an XR1200, probably a custom build or a modified sportster of some type...
