I just picked up my 2013 Dyna SG a few weeks ago. I felt the same way...Where is the reserve? No petcock. Just seems odd. Not sure about the Sportster, but at least my bike has a fuel gauge and milers till empty on the readout by the speedo.
Took it out again today to pick up some library books for the kids. I feel like I did when I first got my license at 15. I'd come up with any excuse to take the car out.
"Ahhh Mom, looks like we need some milk."
I actually did the same thing today........with those library books.
Of course, I had to take the "15 mile even though it's only 3 miles down the road" trip to the library. I'll be doing a few more of those before winter sets in.
And to think that I was actually contemplating buy a Shadow........
