sweetest looking stock harley out there (shh.... dont tell the nightrod I said that) Ive always wanted a harley, but I never knew I could actually afford one. One of my buddies is a salesman at a large Harley dealer here in STL and I just found out that I can get a brand new nighster for 10k or slightly under out the door. Now I always assumed that nice harleys were 20k+ and I never looked into it. but if I can get a brand new bike (paritally financed) for 10k out the door that is a smokin deal in my opinion. great mpg, awesome looks, reasonable price etc.... im just having a hard time finding reasons not to go get it today. however, im trying to be reasonable about big purchases and do my research. Ive never ridden anything other than dirtbikes and atv's..... is there any reason I would NOT want a 1200 sportster as a first bike? id look at 883s, but I dont want to be wishing id have gotten more 6months into it when I get used to it. Im responsible, and bikes scare the (edit) out of me so Id be taking it very easy until I got comfortable. id go with a bigger bike like a vrod or nice crusier, but $$$ wise thats not very practical and id feel more comforatble starting on a sportser since its smaller and (guessing) easier for a new rider to learn.
