After more than 30 years of not riding I decided to purchase a 2006 XL1200 Custom in August of 2006. Although it was a great bike, my heart said, "go with the big boys." So, on Dec 9th of last year I traded the Sportster in for a 2007 Heritage Softail Classic. It's the difference between a Volkswagon and a Continental. I had the Screamin Eagle Stage 1Air Kit, Racing Tuner and Vance & Hines Big Shot Longs installed at purchase, along with an engine guard, passenger floorboards and matching studded passenger pillion and backrest. Needless to say, my "baby" looks great, sounds great and rides like a dream. Couldn't be more happier.
