get the 8-ball vegas. its my very first bike and man do i love it! i was going to get the HD blackline but i decided that if i got a stock bike i would be so unhappy til i got all the mods done to it. so i found that i could get a 2011 8ball vegas w/ custom black radiused pipes,lowered,rear seat w/ back rest,air box delete,and power commander for $15k out the door or........ be stuck w/ a stock HD blackline...no pipes,no seat,smaller engine,etc for $16k.
im happy w/ my choice and havent looked back!
