Almost New

World, Ellie. Ellie, World. It has happened and the cat is out of the bag. QC Dragon and I came up with a deal no one could refuse, so Ellie (short for, "Little Demon", the name Q gave her) now resides in my messy garage. This is a stock photo from the H-D website, but she has a different seat, shocks and exhaust and is much prettier now.

I've always said there was only one Harley that I ever lusted after and it, unfortunately, was built during the AMF days. That bike was the XLCR (for, "Excelsior" from Harley's past) based on the flat-tracker of the day and allegedly designed by Willie G himself. So, since the XG 750 (aka, "Street 750") was based on the XLCR, but a totally new bike, it makes sense I should want one, right? :lol:

Anyway, Ellie and I are beside ourselves with joy and Cheryl is shaking her head wondering WTF just happened. Yes, there were conditions accompanying the acquisition of the new bike, but nothing I can't live with or that Ellie isn't worth.

We hope to be riding with you, soon. :thumbup:

That bike looks like it could even potentially corner.
