She did it! She bought a brand new XL1200L Sportster. She added a stage one kit, heated grips, a taillight/stoplight kit and a windshield. The Sportster Low has chrome cases and a black engine, it shines like a little gem.
At first she thought she would get an 883 but everyone she talked to said she would soon outgrow it. She rode the 1200 at the dealer a few times and decided that the 1200 was for her.
I am really proud of her, she took a rider training class, got her license, rode the borrowed Honda Rebel while she shopped for her own bike. She rode a lot of different models and then she bought the bike she wanted.
