I've had about 20 bikes over my 58 years and before this one, had never even ridden a Harley Davidson. Decided to make a change. Just rode it home yesterday.
Nice bike, Bill! Is that sporty customized, or is that the way Harley sells it? Lately HD has gone in some new directions with their styling.Rick.
Beautiful Sporty! However, your clean garage is making me feel guilty!Bob
Rick - that is bone stock. The Roadster comes with a longer (preload adjustable) rear shock - with the accompanying greater seat height and lean angle, double disk front brakes and an inverted front fork. Seat height is high for a Harley - 30.9 inches. It has an analog tach, with a digital speedo in the single cluster. Very minimalistic though, which is what I was going for...
Bill, how would you describe the foot peg location? Slightly forward?Bob
I'm not an HD guy, never ridden or owned one, but I've always regretted that I didn't pick up a couple of NOS XLCRs for cheap,,,waayyy back in the day.I've always had a soft spot for Sportsters of this style, they have a minimalist raw mechanical aura about them, that no other bike quite matches.Congrats, very well bought, hope you put lots of miles on itKelly
Bob - Harley lists them as mid mounted pegs and I find them pretty close to standard. The seat to peg distance is pretty short (and so am I), so someone 6 feet or over is going to be cramped. They make both forward and rear sets for this bike, but both of those are pretty extreme, at least for me.
So how's the handling compared to a Guzzi?I ask because when I was riding my Cal III, a friend swapped with me and I rode his Kawasaki Vulcan V-twin for a leg of a trip. I stopped to put air in the tires (it didn't need it) because as bad as that thing handled, it was like riding a Guzzi with two flat tires.I always assume that my Guzzis handle better than anything in their class ....Lannis
