Really sharp looking bike, they had one sitting at the dealer last time I went in to get the 0-ring for my spline lube.

Everyone's biggest compaint about this bike seems to be the skinny front tire. I still think it looks pretty sharp, I like the spokes on the front rim. I can't get seem to get my head around where the rear shocks are though.

A co-worker rides a 900, his uses a mono shock setup, forward of the rear wheel. DT's pic must be a newer model or a special edition I guess, my co-workers bike has a wider front tire

The Custom trim level comes with 41 mm front forks at a 33 rake/7.2” of trail, a 21” cast front wheel and 15” cast rear wheel. Rear suspension is Softail-style single-shock, hidden under the seat for a hardtail look. Slightly forward-set footpegs and a gunfighter-style seat contribute to the sporting cruiser look.

I saw a chrome one when they first came out a few years ago. Can't get my head around the skinny front wheel on the custom, and the non matching wheels. Seems like you'd get some weird wind action with a dish wheel on the back and open mag on the front. Don't know. Seems like a big bike for that skinny of a wheel though.
