2012 Sportster 72 by Harley Davidson
by Joetta Nelms
I bought a new Sportster 72 (new model, came out in 2012), latelast fall... I am a new rider, rode with husband (on Harleys) for 15 years. I took the MSF course last fall, been riding as much ass possible since... Im 5ft 3in and weigh 115 lbs. Sportster is top heavy for me soextra care taken on our hilly, gravel driveway. Once out on road doing fine... Have a super reduced reach Harley seat that puts me lower and forward and wear 2 in. heel motorcycle boots. Did not have it lowered yet, think iwill be good with more riding under my belt. Just now getting comfortable going speed limit on local twisty roads. Just noow starting to relax and enjoy the ride quite a bit!!!!
