Yo from western NY! I believe you have coined a new phrase.

Lol I hope so Sportsters are the most versatile bike ever made I’m finding out. I’ve seen some sweet dressers on here. Just loved the thought of a miniature heritage. Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome.

Not really a miniature. A '66 Electra-Glide weighed about 600 lbs., had a 60" wheelbase & a 1200cc motor. Kinda sounds like a Sportster, to me.

I did a demo ride of a heritage at the now-defunct IMS show this fall. I think an XL based solution is probably better. Either a Sportster or FL, but the in-between wasn't enough one way or the other for me.

Welcome from north Georgia. Practically neighbors. You've got some good roads up there.

Funny, I live right next to Brushy Mountain Road. No prisons on this one.
