Sportster will give your 636 a good run for the money.

In city riding? May want to rethink that.

A Sportster is in its own element in that kind of riding. It comes down to the rider, not the bike.

An 03 HD FXDX 1450cc was neck and neck with a 04 636 till 80, then the 636 pulled away. In the city, both hard on the throttle, both not stock bikes.

on second thought..... i remember Shawn on his batrod was going a lot faster than his buddy on a 1198 through RR, so it really comes down to the rider i guess.
