Default Re: 2007 Prices (MSRP)

I was thinking the same thing. I own a Victory and nearly choked when I read that. There is NOTHING with a victory name on it that is "substantially less" then anything comparable that HD sells.

I enjoyed the article, mostly because you called my 1977 Low Rider FXS the "Magnum Opus" of Harley Davidson. I tried to brag about it with my riding buddies but I got tired of explaining what "Magnus Opus" meant. My '77 is 90% stock and it spite of it's constant maintenance issues there's not another bike in the world I'd trade it for.

No posers on sportbikes? Are you blind? What do you call some squid who buys a repli-racer sportbike and uses it for nothing but trolling shopping mall parking lots looking for jailbait at 15mph? One whose riding gear consists of shorts, tank top, gargoyles and sandals?



YES there are sportbike posers. They're just a different style of poser from the middle-age dentist who dresses up like a big bad biker and rides his chrome monument Harley to the local combover cantina looking for lonely divorcees. Different age, different style, equally POSER!

I first saw the redesigned Sportster at the 2004 NYC Motoshow, and was frankly smitten. I think Longride nailed it pretty well : "It's everything you need and nothing you don't", a pure, essential motorcycle.



So, I rented one on a visit to Tucson last year, and rode it in the desert (well, not actually in the desert, on the roads in the desert) for a couple of days. I really liked it, so, after riding bikes of various nationalities and marques since the 70s (predominantly BMWs of late), I finally bought a Harley this summer.



I purchased a 2005 Sportster 1200 Custom on E-bay, from a dealer. The bike had less than 3,000 miles, and the original owner had added the SE air cleaner, SE II mufflers and jet kit to the otherwise stock bike. I found the stock rear shocks to be intolerable, so I replaced the suspension with Progressive Suspension aftermarket shocks and fork springs, and added a Mustang Vintage Touring saddle. Thus improved, this bike is now the one whose key I reach for on nice days when I'm not planning to knock out real serious miles. It is simply a joy to ride, fast or slow --

The Milwaukee "irony" was lost on me either.
