What about the "Acid-Washed Denim" color for 2010?

At least they finally fixed a problem with the first iteration -- the difficulty getting to the right-side shock for adjustment. H-D did offer upgraded rear and front shocks, but the muffler being in front of the shock adjuster was just plain ridiculous!

With optional Big White High Tops and Sherpa lined Levi Jacket, paired with Harley-Davidsons new Dot approved "Backwards Ballcap" helmet for that true Small Town Tuff-Guy look!......


Cool bike anyway. I'd certainly like to have one, I love Sportsters!

I saw a heavily upgraded XR at the HD shop Sunday. Ohlins front and back, trick brakes and lines, a combo of SuperTrapp can with Remus headers, and CF bodywork all around, including a boat-tail pillion cover. He must have put 1/2 the bike price into upgrades.

At Index of / the focus seems to be on upgrading the items HD has added to this model. Seems like a good deal to me.

I wonder where this bike would fit on the KPPI.
