And harley marketing is incredible....

Nice vid.

Those early Harleys actually look like off-roaders. No way you're gonna get a modern one down to the riverbank to do a spot of fishing, unless you got a Chinook to get it back out.

Best you ride to the Waterfront and buy your fish.........  :biggrin:

14k here for the standard edition and 15k for the traveller with wire wheels etc edition.

Pricing is a tad high but its in range of the KTM and GS1250 so another option in that price class. I think its going to do well.

Getting Kahl Drogo as brand ambassador is a win..beats the Ewan and chuck show.

That motor seems to be a peach to use to take the fight to Indian with. Its a lil off the harley beaten track but needed i spose.

Not that I'd buy one, but I could probably afford to buy a bike at that price in Europe.

With low interest rates and higher salaries it becomes feasible to buy on HP, something I wouldn't entertain in SA.

And leaving my wife back in SA makes it even easier ..................  :biggrin:

I see many here in the States but the one that talks to me is the Fatboy.
I did take a ride on the Heritage but it's not quite what I like, felt even a tad cramped but probably the riding position.
I personally will not have a look at the 883 and 1200's, nothing wrong with it but my short experience on a 1200 was not lekker....it shaked and was just unrefined and not a pleasure to ride.
I like the bigger Harleys and hope to own one at some stage of my life. Always thought Wtf till I tried one...dont look at the spect sheets, go ride one and you'll get it!

A Sporster doesn't try to be something it is not, I guess that's what I admire about the bike. 

It offers a pure and raw motorbiking experience.

I would likely have one if I did not look like a circus bear riding a unicycle on one.

Well. I don t look dainty on it thatís for sure. Itís a sweet u adulterated simple motorbike which harks back to when men were tough an sheep were scared. Itís got FI an ABS but still looks old. I have the roadster an I actually enjoy it. I like the simplicity of it.

No longer available in Europe so the next sportster or whatever itís called will be that 1250 motor which will be a completely different animal.

Well that's what makes us unique. The world would have been a boring place if we all liked the same models.
Each to his own and good on you.
I prefer a big displacement Harley thank you  :3some:
Most of the Soft tale range will do but the Fatboy tops my likes.
