I love Harleys but was never much of a sportster fan. I have been entertaining the thought of a soft tail deluxe in the near future. I love the vintage style with the fat ass front tire and skirted fender. I DO have to admit though, the photo of the one in the link with the bags looks kinda cool. I don't think I could bring myself to own a (883) but the 1200 looks like a grown up bike.
