Like a good Sportster, it goes on forever if you maintain it properly.

Hoping so. My 06 Roadster might be the last bike I own. Between it and my 09 Superglide. We will see. I just bought the Roadster with 21k on the clock. It might have been run hard. I put 1k on it. So far so good

I acquired a barn find '05 883 low with 3,900 miles on it through some trading to accompany my Fat Boy in the garage. I have never rode a Sportster (including this one since it is on my lift) so this should be interesting.
