I'll bet that Harley is really "flickable" on tight single track...

As is, that Sportster could be a BALL to ride on a good grass track. Put flat track tires on it, and it's ready to go flat tracking and would be an absolute hoot. Few bikes sound better than a Sporster that's been breathed on with speed goodies.

Why would they go to the trouble of adding Ohlins, and then spec the parts with almost no suspension travel?

There are DS Sportsters out there. They have 14" or longer shocks and forks with DS-worthy amounts of travel...
