I'm supposed to be in Melbourne for a couple of days next week - maybe I'll try to get there on Sunday and go check it out.

Cheers,

Brett

Hi Guys

Just found this forum, this is my first post. I went along to the expo last night.

Unexpectedly, I think I have found my next bike - the Sportster Nightster looked great Anyone know what the cost to add forward controls?

Cheers
Chris

Yeah the nightster sure is a nice bike. Feels great sitting on it to. Gee the EFI sure adds a lot of paraphernalia to the bike. O2 sensors in the exhaust and cables running everywhere. Saw your bike there Walka. I saw it at the Leather and Lace show here in Melbourne as well. The wide glide front end and pipes and air cleaner look good. Have you done anything to the motor? The show was good value. I had a great time checking out the bikes.
