I am not going together into the Sportster is a "girls bike" or anything like that because it simply NOT true. What does bug the begesus out of me is the way H-D treats the Sporty as a forgotten stepchild. I just got the 2012 motor parts and accessary catalogue. The treatment the sporty gets is outrageous! If you go into the Screaming Eagle section, ther are"some" hop-up pets for the bike, but when you compare it to the twin cam motor...good Lord, the difference is astounding. Example, for my 2008 1200 there is one muffler for it ( and I am referring the style of mufflers.). I find that insulting. I also, did not find any cams for either the 883 or the 1200 (74 cu.in.). I have noticed that a lot over the years. Anyone else? John.
