I think the all black one looks pretty awesome but I've had buddies tell me sportsters are for chicks. Let me know what you think.

do people ever get tired of saying "sportsters are for girls???"
If you like riding it, isn't that all that matters?

I keep up with the "big boys on their big twins" all day long on my 1998 XL 1200 S.
Sure, I am a woman on a sportster, how stereotypical, yes.
But really, I see so many woman get sportsters who dont even fit on them.
(they have some of the highest HD seat heights.)
and then i see huge ass dudes on them.

My point: match the propertions of your body and your bike size.

And then there is budget?

Either way, if you like the 1200 N and it actually fits your physical stature,
get it, trick it out, and smoke the bitches that call it a girl bike.

Or "piglet" ... that is my second favorite to "girl bike."

In the end, it is really just friendly teasing.
If they didnt tease us about our "girl bikes" it would be something else.

Or I know, telling em the sporty is like a woman with small hands:
... makes your cock look bigger!

Nope. It's only a chick's bike if a chick owns it. There is nothing better than a hot lady on a Sportster.

Adding to my last comment - Sportsters are very capable motorcycles, especially on twisty roads, and can leave most big twins far behind.

If you like it, then you should get it. I personally like the XR-1200. The coolest Sportster ever. I have ridden one of these, and it really puts the Sport back into Sportster.

And that's what I think!

By the way, I ripped this photo off Harley-Davidson's website - so it's theirs...

I know both girls and guys that ride Sportsters. They are not girl bikes...really work well for beginners too and anyone that enjoys riding them. Who cares what your friends say, do what feels comfortable for you...
