Probably pretty high, the cheerleader Jeep crowd tends to be pretty hive minded unlike us cool Cherokee drivers.

A "Sportster Sport"? Redundant? Truth in Advertising? Someone got bored naming bikes?

They couldn't fit "Harley Davidson Sporty Sportster Sport Model" on the tank.

Ahhhh...

I wasn't trying to "bash" Harley. But really, Sportster Sport? Did you see the new KTM 1200 Adventure Adv.?

Sportster Sport makes it sound like there is a Sportster Cruiser, which begs the question, why not just call it a Cruiser and be done?

And what is it with the FXLHMAY and XLTYZYA (by the by, those are COMPLETELY made up, I know, but you get the idea) with Harley? There has to be a rhyme or a reason. If someone could post up said reason I'd appreciate it.

Production codes I'd imagine. Ones that are publicly posted are likely set for nostalgic purposes, i.e. Toyota FJ Cruiser (FJ was the base body code for Land Cruisers).

Either wya I still wouldn't mind an HD XR1200X though, silly name that makes you think of Honda or not!
