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.

TWROG is that you and the bike in this photo? If that's your bike ....damn I love the paint. And the fenderless front. Very cool looking rig. The pic that Borneo put up is cool too. Don't get me wrong, I'd never hate on a sportster, I'm just not an enthusiast. I'm a fairly big guy and at 6-4 , 295 lbs., when I sit on a 883, I look like one of those clowns on a tote goat at a shriner's parade. A 1200 fits me better but a 100 CI fits me even better ; ) Like Borneo, I'd have to have some disposable cash to consider buying one. For a soft tail deluxe I'd have no problems financing one because I'd keep it.

I'd like to have the sport model.With more ground clearance and dual front disc it make a nice back road scratcher.

I've always had big ones, but if I had the money (and spousal approval) I would walk right in the door and lay it down on a 48. Gosh, I think they are beautiful.
