    My last bike was an 883.... Loved it ! We (my wife & I) wanted something alittle more comfortable for the road.

    Since I own a 2004 Sportster, I am a little partial...as it is my daily driver. Does it do everything I ask...absolutely...would I recommend it as a daily driver...yes...would I like a 2nd long distance touring bike for 2 up travel...well yes...but it hard to get "permission granted" when there are so many other "priorities" in our daily lives...:small3d023: but I can dream...! :rofl

    I alwasy thought of getting a sportster for a around the town bike. That is why i got my RK, to be able to strip it down, for around town, or add a fairing or winshield for longer rides.
    I say get it...
    look at it this way, it is an investment....probably better than the stockmarket:s

    Personally I see a lot of individuals riding Ultras and Road Kings around town.
    The only problem I could see is if you went shopping and had no where to store the item.
