The white customized HD is the best of the lot, I guess as the 7-spoke alloys give it a standard appearance akin to the Sportster 883XL. Addition of Screamin’ eagle exhaust and intake filter makes it look even more exotic. The factory fit model with the weird alloys, however seems so unHD-like and pretentious.
I hope they add candy color next year or so as an optional customizaton.

He said they should have a candy color option, interesting. I wonder if HD will consider custom colors for different markets.

So they have the Street listed under the "Dark Custom" on the harley-davidson.com website so it stands to reason that all the options available on the other dark custom bikes would be available on the street too, here's hoping!

I believe to keep the price down Harley will have to limit the number of options from the factory

To make up for that I have heard the accessories brochure is going to be very large. So we will have lots of options for customization.

The less options the better, just as long as what they deliver is good enough, most shouldn't complain. Plus they can make more money selling accessories, I know HD already does that.

Depends. On my Street Rod a shock like that would interfere with my saddlebags. If I rotated the shock 180 degrees so the reservoir was facing forward (dorky, but hey) the reservoir would foul the passenger peg bracket.

The reservoir buys you some compression adjustability but what I have found is that on my bikes that have reservoir shocks, once I set compression damping I never change it. I only fool with rebound damping, and even then only two or three clicks around my base setting.

I live in a parallel universe but have a vacation home in reality.

How many of you would actually go for pipes like what are on this bike here?

Look at the riding position? Horrible, folded over like a clam. All show and no go.
