Technical and tyres
As you've already found out, everyone has different opinions about what's the best kit to buy and also that everyone in the World will make fun of you for buying a Harley but you just ignore them all and carry on enjoying it.
You might try ebay for good second hand clothing. There's a lot of very nearly new clothing on there as some people can't be bothered to take things back to the shop and just put them away until they're having a clear out. It's good way to find out what you like and also means you can afford a much bigger selection of gear. I buy crash helmets brand new but everything else is usually second hand. If people look down on you for that then it's their problem, not yours.
And enjoy that Sportster. They are the most fun of all the Harleys. O.K, so I'm a bit prejudiced as I rode one for years, but as long as you have fun that's all that matters.

Touring & travel
This trip sounds great apart from the camping part.
Buying and selling
Even in those small photos you can see the left hand front indicator has been snapped off and there is a big scuff on the left hand seat unit plastics.
Who knows what else there might be if you saw it in person?.... a bar end? left side mirror? front fairing?
bent handlebar? bent rear subframe? front forks out of line?
When a bike goes over its not just the engine case that gets damaged.
Without seeing it in person you will not know.,
MCN site & MCN forum feedback
The worst site ever. Previously everything was clear. Now the site is so bad I honestly do not use it very much at all.
If they have any logs that counts the visit they already should know that.
Rubbish is a compliment!
If MCN guys have half of brain they should cut the losses and bring back the old site.
What a waste of money is this new site.
