I think they're neat. One of my best friends had one with a Shovel in it. He said it would bounce too much 'cause there wasn't anything to dampen it. What's it feel like to you?

I like everything but the fat bars - they overpower the look of an otherwise tidy bike. They look almost the same diameter as the forks!...

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.
