I thought I got this out of my system years ago. Playing Freddie Spencer in the twisties. I haven't ridden my sportbike in years, spending all my 2-wheel time on my dirtbike or dual-sport. Then last year, like some dormant instinct written in my DNA, the H-D lust awoke. I'm older now, I thought, I'd rather look good and be comfortable than go fast. Night Train, Low Rider, Deuce. Yeah, one o'them bad boys oughta do. Then I saw that word. The verbal equivalent of t!ts, BIG t!ts. Couldn't pull my eyes away. The word was "SPORT". As in Dyna Super Glide Sport. What's this? Cartridge forks? On a Harley? Triple disc brakes? An upright seating position? t!ts...big t!ts.
Delivery plus two months: I stop by on the 'DX to see an old sport-rider buddy. "Dude, you're not supposed to wear the tires on a Harley this far up!"
So why didn't I buy a Buell, you may ask? If you have to ask, you don't understand.
My name's Dean and I'm a knee dragger

FXDeanX, I'm right there with ya, bro. I've got my eye on an FXDX too. That's a Harley that can get me to give up rice burners.

Does the FXDX really have that much on the FXD?
It's the suspension. Prolly the best ever put on a production Harley. Also a much better max lean angle so you can really get her cranked over. Breath on tha engine some and you're talkin' about some fun canyon carving.

Don't forget the second disc up front. Gotta be able to slow before you look, lean and roll ... ;-)
