Not to my taste but more power to you.

Sportsters are some of my favorite bikes but, at 6' 2" and shot full of arthritis, I just don't fit on them. Dammit.

Agreed. I see some crazy two strokes, like the NS 400, here. Not sure how they did that.

One post on WildGuzzi suggests to bring it in from Canada and kinda finagle the whole DMV thing.
