Unhappy No longer own my Sporty

Well unfortunately I sold my Sporty and got my wife a Mini Cooper I cried on the drive home, come home and called my cousin and told him what I did, his response? Come get this FXDL!! I go next week to pick it up!!!
Only problem I had with the Sporty is it truly wasn't comfortable 2 up (too cramped), 1 up and I was a madman on it! Decided to get rid of it with the intention of getting a Softail, now I will have the FXDL and cash in my pocket!! Can't complain there!
