I want to ask everyone who owns a Sportster this question. Have you ever had anyone ask you why you bought a sportster instead of a "real" Harley? I have had this asked me several times. Don't these ignoramouses know that Sportster was one of the first lines Harley put out? I point out the decal on my sporty. It says Sportster by Harley-Davidson. This is just something that has bugged since I have had my Sportster. I am very happy with my sporty and will ride it until either it or me drops.
