Compare it to 2007 line: std, 883L,883C, 883R, 1200L, 1200C, 1200R, 1200N and XL50. That was a good year.

I like (sarcastically) hoe they are just following the trends of the custom world. Pick up a copy of The Horse and you will see this has been going on forever. I guess their leaving the OCC un-ride-able chopper phase behind. I guess any good business should follow the trends in order to make money, but it would be nice to see them set their own.

Another dissapointing model year, When will I ever learn. No Sporty Sportster, No Buell Blast replacement, No water cooled Bagger. I guess Metalic paint and real Bronze badging taxed the R+D department to the Max. What a JOKE the MoCo has become!! Bring on the Victories, I'm tired of this crap.

I don't want to agree with you, but there's no other choice. To add insult to injury: Harley is micro managing their dealerships so that customers are stuck with mediocre sales and service. I too am disgusted with a new color on yesterdays motorcycle. What's that saying? You can put a pig in a dress, but you still have a pig.

I really like my XL1200L but Harley needs to evolve a little faster than a snails pace. Period

I was expecting more for this anniversary. The 72 in green is pretty sick looking. Noticed you can get colored(red) rims on the Street bob.
