Hello all, 1st time poster - long time lurker. I've found the bike of my dreams . . . an '07 Springer Classic at a good price. I'm about to pull-the-trigger, but then I do another search of the site and find a post talking about the pain-in-the-butt factor of maintaining the springer front-end. Is this something that is a major concern? Also, the bike is a fair distance away. There are no Springer Classics around here that are available to ride, but I've ridden a Deluxe. I fit well, and the ride was great. Is this a fair comparison, or do I need to track down a springer to try before the buy? Thanks a ton for all of the great info contained on this site; it is mucho appreciated.
