I want to trade in my Iron 883 Sportster to get a Softail Deluxe any Input would be appreciated
I was thinking about trading my Iron 883 Sportster in for a Softail Deluxe. This will be
my 3rd season of riding. Lets just say I am not a natural. My husband surprised me with my dream bike 3 years ago for our Wedding Anniversary a brand new Iron 883 Sportster. I have never ridden a motorcycle in my life. I took the class and received my license a couple of months after I got the bike. He knew I wanted that bike so bad I cut a picture out of a flyer and stuck it on our refrigerator and just thought to myself one day it will happen. Never thinking how heavy the bike was, etc. Well I found out the hard way. I was determined though. I do love my sportster but the center of gravity is not the best. When I saw the Softail Deluxe I fell in love all over again. This was after I got my motorcycle license. I did sit on one in a showroom at a local HD dealership but never test rode one. I heard the center of gravity should not make a difference. But I have heard the Softail Deluxe is a better ride. Have any of you started with a sportster and traded it in for a Softail Deluxe and what was your experience? I am still learning. I over think so much when I am riding. I did not ride a lot last summer due to we were out of town a lot camping. This year my husband and I have a permanent camp site and we can ride our bike there. No more hauling the camper back and forth. Any input would be greatly appreciated. I do plan if I get the Softail Deluxe a lot of parking lot pratice.
