Yeah, that's a nice bike.

Twist and go's are a lot of fun, especially around here in the mountains. People don't get it how easy they are to ride and how fun it can be.

I agree, the BMW scootinis are nice pieces.

You're right about the 1200c. I think most people here approach the Sportster as a starting point rather than a pre-rolled solution.

As a nice ready made road bike for all roads, it's pretty nice.

That's a good idea. I'm not real turned on at the idea of putting original tins and stuff on it.

Waiting to see what I can scrounge up.
