    I found this while looking for a new off road bike. My initial idea was to convert a XR1200 into an off road tourer by adding some higher suspension, and luggage racks.

    Needless to say I was amazed when I came across this story and pictures.

    I'm going to post the link to the site since I didn't made this content myself, it's really really worth the read & visit though..

    Amazing Harley Off road story

    Take care,

    Thanks for the post...
    My Dad and his brothers used to do some of the same stuff.

    Maybe they shared the road a few times.

    Great pictures and story. Men of iron riding bikes of steel!

    And today some guys panic when they get a little bug jerky on their headlight. LOL

    I love that Baja Sportster. I ran knobbys on my Ironhead and used it to cruise the wood roads up here for a couple of years, it was lots of fun.

    Fantastic story and photos. That whole montage deserves its own wing in the HD Museum!

    Can you imagine any of us doing that with our bikes today? :lolrolling
