Been away to the Superrally this year held in Ballenstedt, a little town in former East Germany. Went with the Sportster because I didn't had the chance to test ride the shovel yet. She did an excellent job which you couldn't say about my ass! It left me somewhere along the road. Clearly it's no touring bike but hey...what you'd expect. Anyway, we had a great time, the weather was great and the rally was well organized. We covered around 1000 miles and had no problems what so ever! Will post more pics soon!
