I took the rider class four years ago. I forgotten quite a few things since then. My Sporty is my first bike. I had her now for three months. She is very top heavy and Im still learning. My husband surprise me with her one day! I wasnt expecting her because he always talked about gettin me a bigger bike, but I love her.Hopefully my next bike will be a roadking or a softtail! Nomatter what u ride be safe and have fun!

Choke answer (maybe)
by: Colleen

Hello -

I have a 2005 883 XLC - she's cold blooded too. What has worked for me- pull out the choke the whole way - pump the throttle 2 full times, then turn it on with just the start button. (not throttle and button) sometimes I have had to do button then throttle but usually the first way works. Let her warm up for a few minutes with choke all the way out in Neutral. Then off you go!

I love your seat and back rest - looks like the version I want. I have the Mustang seat with all of the studs, but no back rest. When I find 400 dollars laying around I'm going to get the one with the back rest.

have fun out there!!

Thank you ladies! Im enjoying her but the choke on it has slowed me down. Shes cold blooded and I havent yet learned to get her going on my own.

I have a 2001 Sportster 883. It is a tall, slender bike as opposed to squat. I bet when you get the feel, everything will fall in place. It's an easy bike to ride. Though I'm not sure it'll ever be a great bike for long trips. Others have feedback on this?

Sweet looking bike

I have a 2000 Sporty 883cc with some added on accessories, the 883 is adequate on power even though a bit more would be nice. Yours should be a bit smoother than mine since they went to a rubber mount engine in 2004. After you get use to the bike you will find that it handles nice. Enjoy and ride safe.
