Yeah, I don't know, Rick is pissed at the HD world at the moment. Some Harley dude must have bumped into him at the IMS and spilled his beer.

Yea Ken its got Chameleon flames on the tank and front fender, A fat bob rear is being painted for it now, thats just gonna be black.

No Allen its not the lil 883.

The sportster was not my first choice.....but I wasnt going to spend 20G's to see if I liked Harleys { for those of you sayin...why did he get a sportster}

Im actually surprised at the performance and handling of it.

Tom who did the paint? Got a close up of just the tank? What mods were done to engine? I rented a 1200 in Phoenix, bone stock, performance was lack luster at best.

A guy named Dan......I dont but Ill get one.....None Yet..........kinda like a fzr600 eh?

I didnt get it to go fast.....compared to the Yamahunkajunkvmax it goes around corners like a dream.. I guess the first thing Ive noticed more then anything is...theres no desire to go fast on a Harley. If so get ready to spend lots O money.
if I were to Mod anything it would be the front brakes...using the rear is a necessity , next would be a S&S carb, then a bigger Cam.

This is gonna hurt!
