2012 Harley-Davidson XL1200X Forty-Eight 48 Review

The Forty-Eight™ is an urban brawler that drips attitude from every element; from the fat, balloon tires to the all-steel peanut tank to the solo seat.

With fat front tire and steel peanut tank, this low-slung urban brawler is ready to rip through any scene.

Custom touches define this bulldog of a bike. A slammed speedometer, under bar mounted mirrors and 26-inch seat height offer a low profile, while the peanut tank and big 16-inch wheels combine for a menacing look that could only come from Harley-Davidson.

The all-new Forty-Eight™ is an urban brawler that drips attitude from every element; from the fat, balloon tires to the all-steel peanut tank to the solo seat. Custom touches define this bulldog of a bike. A slammed speedometer, under bar mounted mirrors and 26-inch seat height offer a low profile, while the peanut tank and big 16-inch wheels combine for a menacing look that could only come from Harley-Davidson.

PREMIUM PAINT
Up to two times thicker than the competition, custom quality paint comes standard on all Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Clearcoat layering up to five mils deep. Bigger metal flakes. Unique effects in the pearl colors. Skimping simply is not in our vocabulary.

CLASSIC PEANUT FUEL TANK
First appearing on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle back in 1948—and providing the inspiration for the Forty-Eight model name—the small 2.1 gallon tapered peanut fuel tank holds strong today with its traditional styling and modern attitude. A low, powerful bulldog look that gives way for showcasing more engine, the peanut fuel tank is attitude and looks all balled up into one.

SLAMMED HANDLEBAR, SPEEDO AND UNDER MOUNT MIRRORS
The slammed black drag-style handlebar with speedo and under mount mirrors adds to the stripped down, minimal look of the Forty-Eight motorcycle. Inspired by the way hot rod pioneers used to slam their rides, the drag style handlebar is an old school garage feature that demands a forward, aggressive riding position.

FAT FRONT WHEEL
A beefy front end with a tall, fat MT90 tire gives the Forty-Eight model a grounding visual equal to that of a 1950 Mercury. Custom rubber reminiscent of the lead-sled culture. A dominating presence up front that provides a smooth ride and solid handling.

EVOLUTION® ENGINE HERITAGE
The Evolution® engine—known in certain crowds as the Blockhead—was first bolted to the frame of a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle back in 1984.

Born from legendary Shovelhead and Ironhead engines, the Evolution® engine broke new ground in displacement innovation while maintaining the hunger for power, durability and proven reliability that The Motor Company was built on.

EVOLUTION® ENGINE INNOVATION
Air-cooled and durable as hell, the 1200cc Evolution® engine is yet another nod to the unwavering work ethic that drives advancements in motor technology at Harley-Davidson. Aluminum heads and cylinders lighten the load of the bike and improve air-cooling efficiency. Electronic fuel injection says goodbye to carburetors and boasts increased reliability and less routine maintenance. Bottom line: the rubber-mounted Evolution® engine runs hard and rides smooth for thousands of miles so you can just worry about taking in the freedom of the open road.

PURE HARLEY-DAVIDSON STYLING
Feast your eyes on the 1200cc Evolution® engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated cylinders and cylinder heads are topped off with chrome rocker covers, while chrome pushrods highlight the iconic V-Twin. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power.

From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the 1200c Evolution® engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.


ARTFULLY HIDDEN TECHNOLOGY
Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.

INTUITIVE CONTROLS
Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on basking in the freedom of the ride.


H-D® SMART SECURITY SYSTEM (OPTIONAL)
The factory installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It's this attention to details and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.

LOW SEAT & SLAMMED SUSPENSION
The combination of a lowered front and rear suspension together with a low solo seat—just 26 inches high—provides confidence for riders of all sizes and experience. A responsive ride for whipping through town or busting out onto the interstate

TUNED TO BE RIDDEN
Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different from any other bike out on the road. There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—it's all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.

MICHELIN® SCORCHER™ TIRES
New Michelin® Scorcher™ Tires provide the superior performance, sensational grip, impressive durability and excellent handling expected on a race-bred bike. The exclusive deep-cut tread design improves grip and water evacuation capability. Grip performance and durability is also enhanced by the tire's rubber compounds, which use the latest generation of Michelin synthetic polymers. Under the rear rubber, aramid belts are used to stabilize your ride, which helps inspire confidence in handling.

FORWARD-MOUNTED CONTROLS
With the custom forward-mounted controls on the Forty-Eight model, you can kick back a little and stretch your legs for the ultimate cruise through town or across the state line. It's time to take in the open road the way you were meant to—on a two-wheeled machine that's built to outdo the rest.

2012 Sportster® Models: Personalization and Power

The six 2012 Harley-Davidson® Sportster® models range from the affordable Dark CustomTM roadster-inspired Iron 883TM motorcycle to the track-inspired performance of the XR1200XTM bike. Each Sportster® model offers the heartbeat of an authentic American V-Twin engine and pace-setting style and performance.

Back for its first full year of production is the Sportster® 1200 Custom bike, the motorcycle that introduced the Web-based H-D1TM Bike Builder factory customization process. Using Bike Builder, Customers can personalize their 1200 Custom motorcycle with the seat, handlebar, foot control, wheel, security, paint, and engine finish options of their choice, which are then installed right at the Factory. Even more Retailer-installed accessories can be added, and viewed, on the Bike Builder site. The Customer can then print out a description of their bike and bring it to a Harley-Davidson® Retailer where they can review the motorcycle with trained staff, select additional accessories to be installed by the Retailer to further customize the motorcycle, and then place an order. Customers can expect to be riding their new bike in as little as four weeks from the time an order is placed with an authorized Harley-Davidson® Retailer.

All 2012 Sportster® models will have Michelin® ScorcherTM tires with a tread pattern designed, tested and styled specifically for the Sportster® motorcycle to provide an ideal grip, an even wear and a longer life. Fifteen Sportster® paint options include seven new colour choices for 2012. Side covers will be finished in either Gloss Black or Denim Black to match the finish on other bodywork. The Forty-EightTM model will have a new tank graphic.

2008 Harley-Davidson FLSTB Softail Cross Bones





What’s old is new again. The more things change the more they stay the same. The song remains the same, etcetera, etcetera. I’m sure I’ve used those adages and clich├ęs before, but never did they seem truer in light of Harley-Davidson’s newest machine, the Cross Bones.

Back in January of this year, both father and son, Willie G. and Bill J. Davidson, were on hand at the infamous Viper Room on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, CA, to uncover, literally, the latest addition to not only the Softail line, but also to what is something of a phantom line-up. That snaky venue was the perfect setting, and likely chosen for both its dark motif and equally dark vibe, for Harley to officially announce what it calls Dark Customs. These shadowy figures are various bikes from other model platforms that all carry a common darkened theme. The Dark Customs currently are: Sportster 1200 Nightster (XL1200N), Night Rod Special (VRSCDX), Dyna Street Bob (FXDB), Fat Bob (FXDF), Night Train (FXSTB) and the Cross Bones (FLSTSB).

Most of the Dark Customs eschew the gleam and sparkle of acres of chrome and flashy paint for black-finished parts like mirrors, hand and foot controls, engine finish, headlamp nacelle, wheels, so on and so forth. If all those bits on a particular model aren’t blackened, as is the case with the shinier Night Train or Dyna Street Bob, then, at a minimum those bikes wear darker, simpler colors, often in a matte finish.

I enjoyed my time on one of the early entrants to the Darks, the Nightster, when we tested it a little over a year ago, well before the words Dark Custom were ever uttered. The Cross Bones follows the Nightster’s pattern of dark, black bits everywhere. The rear fender struts, swingarm, oil tank, round air cleaner cover, old-skool half-moon rubber-cushioned floorboards, handlebars, mirrors, turn signals, tank-mounted speedo including idiot lights, headlamp, springer front-end, front fender bracket, and laced steel wheels all have a deep black luster. About the only pieces that aren’t black are the gas cap, engine covers and dual slash-cut exhaust.

What sets the Cross Bones apart from bikes in the Softail line as well as some of the other Dark Customs is its nod to the bike-bobbing past. Mini ape-hanger rubber-mounted handlebars are an easy cue to the direction the bike’s styling is headed. The front fender is minimal; it boldly displays the chubby 5-inch wide, 16-inch Dunlop D402 tire. The rear fender follows suit as it gives plenty of exposure to the 200mm-wide (7.8”) 17-inch tire, also a D402.

Should you purchase or take a spin on this retro ride, take note. Its adjustable two-position tractor-style solo springer saddle will have you starting and ending your trip all alone. This one-man-band saddle leaves the rear fender naked, accentuating its long look. Furthering the bare and vintage appearance out back is the pseudo hardtail look that Softails emulate by using two horizontally-mounted shocks that hide underneath the bike. Rear suspension travel is in line with most of the other Softies at 4.3 inches, but the Bones’s front travel is a hair over an inch less than the other models at 3.8 inches. Capping off post-war styling is a simple paint scheme that’s tastefully accented with Von Dutch-style pinstriping.

I admire Harley-Davidson as a company for a number of reasons. One reason being that, like BMW, the company is a masterful alchemist, able to extract several bike models all from one basic platform. The basic Softail chassis is in place on the Cross Bones – save for the front end. Powering this new old bike is the same Twin Cam 96B that every bike model beginning with an F gets. The fuel-injected 45-degree air-cooled 96ci Twin is rigid mounted and counter-balanced – hence the B in its name. The venerable workhorse is matted to a six-speed gearbox.

Expecting one thing, getting another
Years ago, long before I could give two hoots about motorcycles, I was more interested in bicycle racing. In one race I learned a great life lesson. Before the race started I sized up the competitors – their gear and bikes the latest and greatest – and surmised that I was in deep doodoo. Near races’ end I had passed at least three-quarters of the field. Lesson? Preconceived notions shouldn’t see the light of day. In the case of the Cross Bones, I was dead-wrong about my suspicions that such a simple front-end and seat wouldn’t be able to provide good ride quality and performance.

The solo seat sits 30 inches off the ground and is the most comfy cruiser seat in my recent memory. It feels simply as if it had been custom made and perfectly shaped just for me. Neither freeway nor surface street miles had me fidgeting with mild numbness or soreness. Next to be struck from my list of presumptions was what I thought would be inherent discomfort and poor input response from the mini apes. To my surprise I never felt stretched too far forward and only suffered discomfort from arm pump while doing my best impersonation of a spinnaker sail when hammering down the freeway in excess of 80 mph. The rubber-mounted bars offer a good blend of comfort and functionality.

The vintage-inspired half-moon floor boards also have vibe-isolating properties courtesy of rubber tops, and offer a relaxing place to park your boots. But, the combination of their forward bias and a large boot size may create difficulty in wiggling your left foot out in a hurry from under the heel-toe shifter.

That seat I like so much is accented by a braided leather tank strap that visually connects it to a simplistic instrument console mounted on the 5-gallon tank. The console is so simple in fact that the analog speedo only reads in single and double digits with a “MPH x 10” reminder at the bottom. It’s inlayed with a tiny LCD displaying time, dual tripmeter, odo, low fuel and oil warning. The usual array of idiot lights blends inconspicuously into the console, only appearing when lit. As slick as the instrument package is, I should note that while wearing a full-face helmet I was forced to tilt my head down to see the gauges, thereby taking my eyes off the road for whatever length of time.

Putting the Cross Bones in its natural habitat of urban surface streets and fun canyon roads was the first place I realized that I expected one thing from this motorcycle and it gave me something else.

Shock and amazement! The big bobber imitator rides like a dream. The fat front and rear tire combo doesn’t hinder steering or make the bike run wide in corners. Mind the lean angles, though, as is the case with any cruiser, ground clearance is an issue. Holding a smooth continuous arc is effortless, belying the bike’s 737-lb claimed wet weight. No small feat considering, for example, that the Bones weighs a full 55 pounds more than the Night Train with fuel, etc.

Half expecting chassis flex in quicker transitioning corners, I was doubly pleased that I experienced little, if any, movement in the frame. The low-tech front provided excellent damping over just about every surface with the exception of high-speed (steep-angled) bumps. The simple spring and associated covered and chromed shock simply can’t react fast enough and with enough damping to soak up such imperfections. Otherwise, it was sufficient.

Extended freeway time may or may not be a chore depending on your chosen rate of travel. Anything above 80 mph or so can be work not only holding on against the wind, but the classic springer front end starts to resemble riding a several-hundred-pound jackhammer. Keep freeway speeds reasonable and you’ll feel as cool as you look.

Harley-Davidson may have turned back the hands of time in styling the Cross Bones, but not at the cost of forward progress in performance. This bike has a smooth, responsive ride in all but the upper reaches of the speedometer; the reliable Twin Cam 96B is plenty torquey and smooth. The six-speed transmission isn’t the slickest shifting but it engages with the reassuring ka-thunk that it’s proudly American made. The single-piston, single-rotor front brake works well, but the two-piston rear brake works better. Throttle response is good, and the note emanating from the custom-looking exhaust sounds like it just slipped under the EPA’s radar, but an observed 32 mpg should keep the agency happy.

More important than the Cross Bones’ abilities is its obvious aesthetic appeal. I often found myself passing the bike in the garage only to get caught in its hypnotic pull. I would stop and look at it and think, “Man, this is one good-looking Harley. I can’t think of anything about it I’d want to change.” The Cross Bones has become my new favorite Harley-Davidson.

Whether you’re ready to relive your past or are young and want a tie-in to motorcycling’s days gone by, the Cross Bones may be your fountain of youth. The price of admission starts at $16,795; available colors are Vivid Black, Olive Pearl, Dark Blue Pearl, Black Denim, Pewter Denim and Dark Blue Denim. (By Pete Brissette, Jun. 23, 2008)

MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Brooks, LeBoeuf, Bennett, Foster & Gwartney, P.A.
www.tallahasseeattorneys.com

Our Tallahassee personal injury attorneys have over 100 years of combined legal experience handling serious personal injury and wrongful death cases in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi.

Florida automobile accidents are governed by a no-fault law. Every Florida resident and certain non-residents that own a motor vehicle are required to purchase no-fault automobile insurance. Florida's no-fault automobile insurance contains Personal Injury Protection benefits, frequently called PIP benefits, to protect you when you have been injured in an accident.

Regardless of who was at fault for your accident, your PIP insurance will usually pay most of your medical bills. The benefits payable will depend on the amount and type of coverage that you have purchased. For example, under a basic no-fault policy in Florida, your own insurance company will pay 80% of your reasonable and necessary medical expenses, and 60% of your lost wages, up to $10,000.

In addition to medical expenses and lost wages, your PIP benefits may also pay for prescriptions or household help, if recommended by a doctor, plus travel expenses associated with your medical treatments. However, if you have purchased an insurance policy with a deductible, your insurance company will not pay for any of your medical bills, prescriptions or lost wages until you have met your deductible amount

In addition to the benefits you are entitled to receive from your own insurance company, you may also be entitled to benefits from the party at fault for your accident. Under Florida law, the at-fault party is responsible for any property damages sustained in the accident. You may also be entitled to expenses for a rental car for a reasonable period of time.

If you receive serious injuries from an accident that results in some form of permanent injury, such as scarring, or permanent physical impairment, Florida law entitles you, or your personal representative, to bring a claim against the at-fault party. This way, you can recover the full extent of your damages above and beyond the benefits provided by your No-Fault coverage. These additional damages include items such as past and future pain and suffering, lost wages, damage to your wage earning capacity, and future medical expenses. If you're married at the time of the accident, and you have permanent injuries, your spouse may be entitled to damages as a result of your injury.

In addition, if you purchased uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on your own policy, you may be able to recover additional funds for your damages if they exceed the policy limits of the at-fault party, or if the other driver was uninsured.

Because the laws governing personal injury cases can be very complicated and confusing, it is essential that you seek the advice of an attorney if you have any questions. A lawyer can assist you in obtaining all of the benefits that you are entitled to under Florida law. If you decide to represent yourself following an accident and are offered money by an insurance company, it is vital that you carefully read and understand any documents that you are asked to sign in exchange for the money. If you sign a general release you will be prohibited from seeking additional money in the future, even if your injuries are more serious than you originally thought.

MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS

Our Tallahassee personal injury attorneys have over 100 years of combined legal experience handling serious personal injury and wrongful death cases in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi.

Florida automobile accidents are governed by a no-fault law. Every Florida resident and certain non-residents that own a motor vehicle are required to purchase no-fault automobile insurance. Florida's no-fault automobile insurance contains Personal Injury Protection benefits, frequently called PIP benefits, to protect you when you have been injured in an accident.

Regardless of who was at fault for your accident, your PIP insurance will usually pay most of your medical bills. The benefits payable will depend on the amount and type of coverage that you have purchased. For example, under a basic no-fault policy in Florida, your own insurance company will pay 80% of your reasonable and necessary medical expenses, and 60% of your lost wages, up to $10,000.

In addition to medical expenses and lost wages, your PIP benefits may also pay for prescriptions or household help, if recommended by a doctor, plus travel expenses associated with your medical treatments. However, if you have purchased an insurance policy with a deductible, your insurance company will not pay for any of your medical bills, prescriptions or lost wages until you have met your deductible amount

In addition to the benefits you are entitled to receive from your own insurance company, you may also be entitled to benefits from the party at fault for your accident. Under Florida law, the at-fault party is responsible for any property damages sustained in the accident. You may also be entitled to expenses for a rental car for a reasonable period of time.

If you receive serious injuries from an accident that results in some form of permanent injury, such as scarring, or permanent physical impairment, Florida law entitles you, or your personal representative, to bring a claim against the at-fault party. This way, you can recover the full extent of your damages above and beyond the benefits provided by your No-Fault coverage. These additional damages include items such as past and future pain and suffering, lost wages, damage to your wage earning capacity, and future medical expenses. If you're married at the time of the accident, and you have permanent injuries, your spouse may be entitled to damages as a result of your injury.

In addition, if you purchased uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on your own policy, you may be able to recover additional funds for your damages if they exceed the policy limits of the at-fault party, or if the other driver was uninsured.

Because the laws governing personal injury cases can be very complicated and confusing, it is essential that you seek the advice of an attorney if you have any questions. A lawyer can assist you in obtaining all of the benefits that you are entitled to under Florida law. If you decide to represent yourself following an accident and are offered money by an insurance company, it is vital that you carefully read and understand any documents that you are asked to sign in exchange for the money. If you sign a general release you will be prohibited from seeking additional money in the future, even if your injuries are more serious than you originally thought.
