Well I joined this forum a while back with the intent of buying a sportbike.. well I finally bought a bike last week but as the title says its not a sportbike..

I just found that the riding position of a crusier was more comfortable to me.. and for the type of riding I want to do it was the best choice (no desire to do track days or ride down the freeway at break neck speeds)
2012 Harley Davidson Nightster

First order of business.. Remove those god ugly reflectors atleast the ones on the front forks

Have some other mods in mind for later down the road.. if anybody is interested (which is doubtful based on the hate ive seen Harley's get on this site) ill post pics in the future as I change some things to make it my own

its pretty easy to wrench on.. so far ive changed the slip ons (MORE VOLUME :D) and used heat wrap on the header pipe instead of heat sheilds , Air cleaner, and added a power commander..

also put on a small saddle bag on the left side of the bike. a luggage rack, and a new gas cap

I agree, sweet bike! Along the same lines as KeS, good for you buying something that works for you.

One of my buddies is appalled I bought a z1000 instead of a super sport...

That is a nice looking bike and I think the gas cap looks nice on the bike. Also, KeS has a sweet bike. I love the K1300s' looks and I'll bet it is awesome to ride. Anyhow, congrats on the new bike.
