There's a Sportster available only in Europe I would take. Think it's called a VR1200 but it's basically a hopped-up XL1200S. Very cool bike. Getting off the poll question but also the Buell 1125R is verrry interesting but don't like the ideas of having to drop the engine everytime I want to change the spark plugs!

That's it! The XR1200. Wish they had similar in the States but HD wants to keep the cost down on XL's.

I voted Nightster then saw the anniversary one. I'd say it'd have to be a split between the two, I've got an anniversary Corvette, and an anniversary HD would be just as cool to me.

That's a bit more than a hopped up 1200S.

Still haven't got around to looking at the new XR1200, but I haven't been near a dealer for months!
