    I also had Sport bikes a few years ago. The part I like about riding a HD is chasing down the sport bikes in the curves and see the look on there face :swoon I guess most sport riders can not believe HD's can corner...:D

    I am new to the Harley World as well. Ive owned several hondas since mid 80s and love my '97 Sportster 883. Wish I had gone bigger but it was a ice breaker for the wife. She loves it too. Yes!!!

    Im in the middle of changing the main drive gear bearing and am looking for some advice on removing the Primary Drive/Clutch assy. Any help would be welcome.
