I don't care for the Sportsters that much but I'm liking that Nightster.

Anyone else?

Well, if you're over 5'6", and 140 lbs., it's TOO SMALL for you! Otherwise, it's OK if you like that kinda thing. I think it looks kinda boring, I'm a CHROME guy myself! :D

Not bad looking, but I'm pretty spoiled with liquid cooled MC engines. :wink:

+1

They had a nice one at the dealer here...added some mild apes and kinda old school looking saddlebags. But at 6'1" my knees were almost in my chest...I felt like I was riding a minibike lol. I do like the fat bob though...not quite as cool as the Nighster but a similar theme and a bit bigger.

Well you really need to ask that question over on HDForums. That being said it gets good reviews and owners seem to like it. However ask the question to owners. Personally I think it is a great looking bike, but I like sportys.

I dunno. I just don't 'get it'. Is it me? or does anyone else think all HD look alike...'cept maybe the full baggers.

I just don't see high price tag.

but...to each their own, as I always say. :wink:

I am 5'6 and 140 lbs. so it might be a great bike for a fella like myself. I have been on one and liked it. I like the sporty! Price is'n bad either for a HD :wink:

I sit on the 1200 sporty low and I don't find it cramped. Now the Yami 250 I find to be cramped. I also found the C50 to be cramped. I guess everyone is built different.

It's certainly NOT boring. They are VERY sharp looking bikes. FAR better looking in person.

I just wish those bikes where a bit longer. Maybe a bit more leg room too.

Chrome is over rated.

I said it before.....HD's wrinkle finishes are trend setters. A perfect example of that is on their new bobber/chopper wanna be thingy.

The matte silver finish is AWESOME!
