Harley's ?
« on: January 23, 2018, 09:35:47 PM »

Love 'em or hate 'em?

They can be a bit controversial.
What do you guys think?

Don't mind the bikes - hate the whole Harley rider/screamin eagle persona!! All that leather, denim, gang patches, silly beards and pony tails. Ugh. Don't mind the scantily clad women pillions though!!!

Sorry. I don't have a beard, ponytail, gang patches or even a tattoo. But I do have a 2013 Harley sportster that has never left me on the side of the road and has only had routine maintenance and tires replaced. Yes I agree the goober riders stand out and get noticed where people like me don't get noticed so you could easily get a bad opinion of some motor company riders. The sad thing is my 2011 hyo convinced me to buy the sportster as the hyo couldnt get down the road without breaking down. And yes I bought the hyo  brand new and no it wasn't a leftover. I bought the 2011 in 2011.

I've always been on the fence with them tbh. I do think they're overpriced, but that's another matter.
They just have that kinda something I can't put my finger on.
Been looking at the Iron 883 - nice looker and I'm kinda tempted. I'll still keep me Hyo though.

I'd have one.
Could do without the handlebars being 6ft wide.

Never really appealed to me, which, in some way is a little odd, as I like custom/cruiser bikes. Right from when I had my Jinlun JL-250, Honda VTX, Triumph America and now the ST7   ??? ???

Nah,

The Iron 883 is fairly normal for a Harley. Bars are ok and the pegs are further back than usual.
Imo, the black one looks the dogs bollox.. 8)

They were not on my radar for years - kinda never took much notice of 'em really.
It's a recent thing..... ;)

Never ridden one.

Never had herpes either.

I go riding with a mate who has a 1200 V-ROD and that thing is mental .
I don't like them but that thing can move.
