Bought a 1972 Sportster in '85 as a young Army private stationed in D.C. Sold it before going to Germany in '95. Picked up a 2011 XL1200Custom as a retirement gift for myself. Rode a lot of miles up and down the East Coast on that 72 Sporty but it's been a little while.
Walked into the HD dealer already knowing what I wanted and sat on a Sporty Custom, checking her out. Salesman walked out and said, "Can I help you?" I'm like, "Yeah, where the hell is the fuel petcock on this thing?" We both had a good laugh when he explained to me that they're all fuel-injected now and no carb = no petcock. Oops. It's been a little while!
