I like the new 2012 XL1200X... I'm drooling over it. I'm a long time sport bike rider then got my Roadster. I love it, but I kinda miss the sportbikes but don't want another full on sport bike, so an X is a perfect compromise. A sporty and sportbike in one.

If I couldn't touch change a thing it would definitely have to be a panhead, shovelhead at a close second.

I voted for "Other"..because If I would buy a new Sporty today, I'm pretty sure, this would be the "72"
