roycrown wants to know Dino or Syn?
51 years old, and can't see myself ever, ever "moving up" to a Big Twin. I could have afforded any Harley in the catalog, ended up with 2 Sportsters and a Buell. When you get to my age, you don't always want the newest, bestest, biggest, fanciest of items. You want what was out of reach when you were young, and a Harley-Davidson Sportster was definately out of reach to this teenager in 1970. I never, ever daydreamed of owning an Electra-Glide, and only occasionly of a Super Glide after it's 1971 introduction, it was always that instantly recognizeable profile of the Sportster that got my juices flowing. I have nothing against Softails, Dynas, Glides, Rods, etc., it is just that my eyes don't instanly acknowlege them, I often look right past them, yet there is not a Sportster that passes by I don't look at. Any event I go to, I head straight for the Sportsters, every time I visit the dealer, I look at the new/used Sportsters for several minutes every time. That's just me though.

Talking

I'm 63 and have a 1995 Sportster 1200 and a 2002 Super Glide (just a Sportster on steroids). I have considered a "bagger" from time to time, but I'm really not old enough yet.

LOL. I am 54 and I got an XL 883 last year. A 2005. Im about to get a Zipper' Torkster package on it and some goodies to put some spark in it. Maybe put a more desirable cam in it next year to keep the juice flowing. Im not sure where all this goes but I dont care. I just want to get out and ride and hear this machine between my legs ready to do my bidding.

43 here. Traded an 04' 1200R for a Buell XB (have had 2 of them). Now, between the XB and the Springer Classic I thinks all my riding needs are satisfied.
