I wish they had gone full-on 80's style and put white wheels on it.

I could be wrong, but I thought the rwb was 07 only.
I just like the scheme, and would like it even more if they had done the white wheels too.

I really like the later and early 800's. I like them all. Great road machines.

Local Triumph/BMW/Yamaha dealer had an open house today.

I could see having one of these for short jaunts.

They made them with spokes too. I like the idea of a parallel twin cruiser. Lots of useful midrange for people who like to twist the throttle and hear one wind up a bit, but not to 16k rpm.

The rubber mounts are only a heavy solution to mask a problem. They should have invested that money in balancing the sporty engines like Buell did. Save the weight too. My 883 smoothed out a lot after the 1250 kit and the buell bottom end. I will miss it when its gone, but I will always want a sportster in my garage.
