A sportster has it’s place and fan base. For what I use a motorcycle for it does not cut it.

Unless it was a low or ‘Hugger’, I never understood the ‘woman’s bike’ comments especially for the sportier models Harley has marketed over the years. These were originally designed to compete with triumph, bsa, and, Norton’s after all and still cover a lot of ground in 2019. Sport, commute, tour.

For me, I love the old xlcr’s, 1200s and the 04-05 1200R’s which my brother just bought an unmolested orange 1200r that wasn’t lowered nor had forwards or apes fitted. A real deal....sportster. Authentic stuff.

My perfect sportster is in the flavor of a silver xr1200 with ohlins shocks, Showa bpf forks with racetech springs and the gold valve kit plus some other goodies that make it an ideal corner carver when I’m in the mood for such things.
