Is a long running model that has propelled millions into the motorcycling world and at one time held the bragging rights to the fastest hot rod street bike. It in nimble, can be ridden agrresively, can be chopped, stroked and customized almost infinitely. I am not sure about the current Big Twins with the increase engine size but previously a stock 1200 Sporty could outrun most any Harley Big Twin. Bronson rode a Sporty, it was Sonny Bargers Harley of choice. Girls bike? Hardly, especially the old XLCH's which with their kick starts could cripple a man with careless starting habits. A Honda 750 is a nice bike, a Sportster is a legend.
