Congrats on the new bike, Sportszuki! Those "bobber-style" Sportsters are one of HD's most successful new models. It's amazing how they can shuffle the parts bins around.

Does the soimewhat large front tire affect the handling much? Good or bad?

Yeah Cool bike Sportzuki, definitely do the Converse All Stars, skinny jeans and 3/4 metalflake helmet thing, paired with a flannel shirt and a well used desert camo field jacket, preferably the one you wore in OIF or Desert Storm, That's all the rage here abouts but I live by a major army base so that may influence the look somewhat.

You're going to need a super short buzz cut and long scraggly chin beard too by the way ........

The "handling" mostly consists of me hanging on as the inch-and-a-half-travel shocks bottom on every pothole and frost heave.

But on smoother roads, I've noticed that I have to countersteer aggressively compared to the 600 Bandit. But it's more than just the larger wheel, there's also the radically different CG of the two bikes.

It's definitely a different breed of cat, and it's growing on me quickly.

Congrats on the bike. I've been thinking of a sporty as an around-town and commute 20 miles to work option. Be sure to keep us posted on short and long term updates.
