Thanks, looks really good. I am a Harley guy, but I would put one of these in the garage for fun.

This is my bike, a Harley sportster 48. Going to keep it mostly stock for now, but I’d love to hear about mods

After being without my bike for nearly 2 weeks (idiotically laid my bike over at work when. I didn't get the kick stand down all the way and bent the shifter, had to wait for a replacement  :'( ) I've been out and about when the opportunity arises, and so far this memorial day weekend has been FANTASTIC weather wise

Tracked down a mount and saddle bag, and while it's "a little) silly to just have one because of the high exhaust on the other side, for sure makes a run out to a not-so-close beer shop easier  :D

My poor girl is still in the garage waiting for me to do maintenance. 2008 Fat Bob. Need to get to it tomorrow!

I do love that Sportster 48 @S17

how do you find it? really been toying with the idea of one myself as I'm rapidly coming up toward first 'Big Bike' ownership

I dig the pipes on the sportster @S17
Been seeing a lot of slick HDs around my way here in Annapolis, it's 100% bike weather

In my opinion it is the perfect road bike. There’s just enough power to have fun without getting into too much trouble. One thing is that I knew I wanted the evo engine, and I love how accessible everything is on the bike for maintenance.

Cheers for that @S17. While there's a lot of bike reviews around the web most of them are from people who've only borrowed the press bike or ridden it for a day.

Much prefer to get the option of people who actually live with one if that makes sense.

I would say it depends on the type of riding that you plan? I use my Sportster for around town, commuting and smaller 1-4 hours trips (Although you can do longer rides, people ride across the country in hardtails, so don’t worry).
It’s a great bike. Spent 10k km now on it and never looked back. It’s a great engine, enough power, easy to service and just good sounding.
Maybe if you are on the taller side, you may want to play a bit with bars, pegs and saddle. I’m 5‘11“ on a good day 6’ and don’t have any issues.
