"Sportsters are by far the most capable and best engineered of all Harley Davidsons."



Sportsters are more capable and better engineered than V-Rods? Who knew?

I don't know if I qualify as a canyon squid but I was subjected to a dose of Dirty ass-handing a few months ago. I believe I was on the FZ-6 which is the new King of Vibration.



I can't wait to see that new Cloisonne' emblem!

Yahoo first post! When the heck is Harley going to come out with a bike to replace my Fxrt.I want a V-Rod (detuned for Mpg and torque) powered sport-touring bike with at least a 200 mile range good hard bags and comfortable riding position.

So I'm guessing that "L" stands for "Ladies". Will it be made available in fuscia and teal for the AbFab rideher I wonder?

I think it stands for Lollapalooza and you can only buy one if you have the required number of piercings and tats.

If I was buyin' a HD, and I'm sure one day I will... It would be a sporty... A 1200 with screamin' eagle everything. I dig the fat look tanks that showed up last year.



Now if they would just use more black, and less chrome... I know I know... blasphemy.

Blasphemy? Not really. It would basically be a Night Train Sportster. I love the Night Train, and the '05 Warrior which has a sorta similar look, but way more aggressive.

Well, I guess it depends on youir definition of capable and best engineered. As an all-around bike, a Sportster is considerably more capable than a V-Rod. If you are talking about chassis engineering, a Sportster is also better. The only area a V-Rod has any advantage is in engine engineering (I know, that sounds dumb).
