Taken a Few Months Ago When the Weather Was Warm!

I took the motorcycle safety class at age 55, then was so excited to ride I bought this bike right away, even before getting my license! When I sat on it, I knew it was for me. Low, easy to maneuver, fun fun fun. Not to mention amazingly gorgeous too! I love everything about my bike except 2 things: 1) the gas tank is a bit small, so I have to fill up more often then most of my friends and 2) the rear shocks don't do much damping. That is because the bike is very low so there is only 1 1/2 inches of travel on the shocks. But I will replace them with some better ones when I have the money. But for now, when I see an unavoidable bump or hole, I stand up on the pegs just a little, and let the bike take the jolt, not me. Works fine unless I don't see it!

My friends say I'll want a bigger bike someday, but I don't know about that, this bike is super fast and fun. I highly recommend anybody thinking about a Harley to take a test ride on one!

It's a Beauty!
by: Lynn

At 1200cc you certainly have plenty of power! You're right about the rear shocks, but with standard pegs it's easy just to lift yourself off the seat when you can't avoid a pot hole, etc. I teased my friend and told her I would get in trouble (speeding) if I rode her bike much longer. It sure was fun! Enjoy!

Me Too...
by: Fancy

I started out with a Sporty 883 Hugger... She was very fun to ride but very top heavy... I also experienced the issue of the small gas tank... I knew that I wanted something a little bit bigger so last July 4th I purchased a BEAUTIFUL Dyna Low... I recently had her lowered so that the center of gravity is even lower... I absolutely LOVE HER!!! I know that she is the bike that I will have forever... Her name is FANCY...

First Bike
by: Kristina

My first bike was an 883 sporty, and I rode it for almost eleven years. I love SPORTIES!!! My husband totally customized it to fit my style. I now finally upgraded to the touring family,I ride a 2007 HD Road Glide which I am in love with!!! Most comfy ride, and I don't get tired. I can ride all day! I miss my sporty, but never imagined I would be in love with the comfort of my Road Glide, plus it's fast and I am not always filling up, and not getting blown around on the road anymore. I can almost bet if you keep riding you'll eventually upgrade too. (-;

Glad to read that you love it! I'm 52 and decided I wanted to ride a bike so I got a HD 883 XL Sportster, loved it the minute I saw it. Will take class in March can hardly wait. Have fun on your HD. Dianna
