Hello again ladies. I feel like I am ready to trade up from m y Honda Shadow 600. I am completely in love with the Harley 1200 custom with a super reach solo seat and mini apes. When I sit on the bike, it feels perfect but a little heavy. I know I need to test ride it but thats my first dilemma. I've been riding for 2 seasons and still not confident all of the time. I'm concerned with pulling out of the dealership for a test ride. My other question is will this be to much bike for me? I am 5'4" 140 lbs. I usually do not let fear stand in my way, but I don't want to drop a brand new bike on a test ride. I'm sure I want to go bigger, but my other choice was another shadow but a 750. I'm just worries in a year or two I will be wishing I went to the 1200. If anyone else has any experience, I would love to hear from you. Thanks again and happy and safe riding!
