Default DANG! My nephew's new '03 Deuce

DANG!!! My nephew just picked up his new (to him) 2003 Deuce anniversary edition. Dang that is a hot bike. While I'm not a huge Softtail fan, the looks of that Deuce is great!

I've always felt that if I were to upgrade to a BT it would be a Dyna, but whoa that is a shweet looking bike. It's got a great line to it albeit rather bulky.

Makes me want to get that sporty paid off already so I can add another HOG to my garage. I would probably end up still buying a DYNA, but.....dang!

While the Deuce is a good looking bike, it doesn't handle nearly as well as the Dyna Line.. Just keep that in mind.

A Sporty and a Dyna dont make a good pairing, To close in size and character. Now a Sporty and a Touring Rig make great stable mates!!

I'm not a fan of Softails myself but I must admit the Deuce is a good looking bike.
I was surprised when HD dropped it.

If I had to go that direction in style I like the wide glide better, the older WG that is.

The Deuce is a great bike. Most either love it or hate it. I like it because it was different. Even more so now that they don't make it anymore. Here's mine. Old pic, few more changes since this one.

I still love my sporty. I just got a letter asking me if I wanted to upgrade to a BT. I thought about it and considered all the changes I made and am going to make and have decided against it. I am a small man 5'5" and 160#. I will just make a touring bike out of my sporty. But damn the duece is hot.
