Sportsters seem to have a good following, and people love them. I think if I wouldn't have lost a lot of weight, I wouldn't even be considering it. I strongly suggest taking either the 48 or the 72 out for a test ride. I couldn't stop smiling and that's what riding is all about right?
My bike is the the total opposite of a 72, but I totally understand... it's all about the ride.
