Thanks folkie for getting those pictures posted like that
I was having a hell of a time trying to compress their size and it was telling me file size was to large no matter what I did. But yeah I'm not sure why the sporty gets hated on. I also see often when someone has some sort of trade ad up and they want a Harley it almost always says "no sportsters" as if if they wouldnt be caught dead on one. Can almost guarantee theyve never actually ridden one and also just believe the crap they hear to avoid them. The bike is great. Intake and tuner to go along with the pipes that are already on it and I'll be more than happy.

Scott im located in Southern MA 02747. Have been down here for a number of years. Originally from Alaska however.

Welcome from western Mass. Zip code puts you in the New Bedford area, my old stompin' grounds when I was a teenager back in the early '70's. Lived in Acushnet in those days.
