I like it too, in fact I think it's the coolest looking bike HD makes. My only beef with it is the mid mount controls, They just don't work for me with my long (and shapely) legs. I had the same problem with my FXD and wound up putting FXWG controls on. It seems that the iron head Sporties had a much higher seat height because I had no trouble riding them. When they went to the Evo motor they dropped a few inches or something.



Either way I love Sporties and I'd be happy to score one of these though I'd probably get the Roadster and put gaiters on it instead. It'd match my Bonnie that way.

Wow a new trim model. Good review from MO, same old tired concept from Harley. There is a guy in East Atlanta making real bobbers out of brit Iron-if you want a bobber, get a real one and support a local wrencher.

-Nice. Try not to snag a stocking when you dismount.



I agree with the leg room. I dig the looks and the price is fair. But, I just don't see it being comfortable for us long legged types.



...now where did I put that mini-skirt.

Default Re: Nut job

What's with the big gap between the tank and seat? Looks like a good place to get your nuts narded. Maybe put a little doughnut there like the old Husky's had? At least there's not a big bolt holding the tank down...



Phork gaters are sooo pase', specially when they're attached to spindly little 38mm tubes.



Yawn, looks like a bunch of stuff HD had laying around in the parts bin that they're trying to liquidate. "Hey Merle, let's dump these 1963 Sprint ERS fenders somewhere".



When's that water cooled Sporty going to show up? Maybe some (gasp) over head CAMS too, perhaps...



And what about that Chang Jang test? We want flatheads!



Time for my sponge bath...

I like how the swingarm points "up' with a rider aboard.
