My Sportster has been a pleasant surprise. Being a '99 model, it lacks rubber engine mounts and EFI, yet it is remarkably smooth, tractable and even starts fairly well in Wisconsin's cool fall and spring mornings. I've even fired it up when it was only 26 degrees out. It took a few stabs at the starter, but it rumbled to life. With forward controls, a deeply scooped seat and buckhorn bars, it seats me down in behind that little black tank and feels as comfy at 80 mph as it does at 40, which is closer to where my average touring speed is on Wisconsin's back roads.
