I own an '07 883 standard Sportster as well and it is a great bike, like all the modern Harleys. Uncannily smooth at 100-120km/h cruise, comfortable as an old chair, very well built, reliable as a rock, virtual nil maintenance and excellent fuel consumption. The only downside is the 3.3 gal tank and the difficulty fitting a larger tank to a fuel injected bike. I put Road King shocks, tacho and a few other goodies on mine and it is a very good touring bike. I like the Road Kings but don't have the garage space to fit one - big bikes.

You can bolt on a Sportster "Custom" 4.5 gallon tank for that bike. I see em on Ebay all the time...
