I have ridden two and I like the way my sporty handles a lot better. Also, stock for stock, a 1200 sporty will be faster. If your not into the sportster though look into the blackline. Personally I think they look great and I have heard they are a lot of fun to ride.
You know the Harley is not a bad thing, i have had over 40 bikes in 40 years had all sorts, as you get a little older we slow down just a little, take in the smells and have a look around this is how you ride a bike, if it gets a little cold you can fit up the quick fit screen and put on your heated gloves no need to speed its just good clean fun, Well that is untill you change that exhaust and pull on your vest with that patch.
