    Harleys...2012 Sportster Nightster or 2012 Sportster 48

    Having a really tough time trying to decide.The tiny tank on the 48 wont matter very much to me, and I really like the look. But I also really like the Nightster, and sometimes the 48 looks too small. Anyone have opinions? Thanks.

    All depends on your size and personal use of it? Long drives, cruising, entry bike? How tall are you, size.......Its like a suit....you pretty well have to be fitted to the bike

    I second what Mugsy said.... Took me 5 completely different bikes to find one that "fit"...


    I would also advise going to test-ride days to get a better feel. Sitting on one in a showroom is like deciding if a couch in a warehouse will fit in an apartment... Very deceiving... And rarely if ever can you get a refund.

    Jacox in Mississauga has demo days too. You just need to check out the dealers and ask around.

    Demo days are great. I thought the 48 was a nicer bike. But I also ride a Rocker. So my style of bike is pretty particular.
