Not mine, but the only Harley I've ever considered looks decent:
It's mine and I appreciate that.
The MoCo got it real right with the Iron and base 883s as a whole
proving once again that less is often more.
Your Iron is decidely enhanced by your excellent photographic rendition.
Has a bit if the HDR look about it. My 07 883R should look so good, though
I am doing a few things to help it's ADVability.
NYP797, in a very fridgid NYC
Nice bike Terrytori,
Like the air cleaner and pipes. How are you liking the bike?
I'm liking it a great deal, New Ride.
It's Sporty # 3 for me and the first that has retained its' 883 status.
It's perfect for loping around town or cruising the shore roads.
If you don't ask too much of it, it will deliver big time.
If you're into aggressive riding, it's probably going to disappoint.
If you want to tilt the horizion at all on it, I'd suggest new suspenders fore and aft. Braking can be improved with some steel lines.
Other than that, it delivers a nice hand of god feeling at your back right off the throttle and is about as mechanically simple as motorcycles get these days.
Looks are always a personal thing. I happen to think this is one of the most attarctive stock Sportys ever.
Good to hear that you are enjoying the new scoot. How are you liking the Progressives? I still haven't decided which shocks to go with.
I'm pretty happy with my 2006 XL883 standard model. I can lean it pretty far and haven't scraped yet. Here's my boring stock XL:
Here is my sporty and my "other" woman:
Just sold my Electra Glide to fund a new Triumph Sprint GT, Might sell the 'Bird as well. We'll see.
Cool video. Good music. Four buds having a great time together riding. It doesn't get much better that this.
The bike set up to look like an HD XR flat track racer seems to be either a Yamaha SR500 engine powered buike, or a Honda XL350 engined bike. There is another Yamaha SR500, a BMW, and I couldn't see the 4th bike well.
Thanks for the video. Reminds me of me and my buds back in high school when we rode a lot together. Class of 1972.
Here's my dinosaur. 1975, the first year for left foot shift. I've had it since 1981. Still fun to ride.
Very cool vid man. Thanks for sharing. The bikes and the music are perfect together.
Just returned from Afghanistan a couple weeks ago and have been spending time working on my sporty project started a few years ago. Latest efforts have been lacing 19" front and 17" rear Sun rims for the Conti Trail Attack tires. I do like the Conti Attack series of tires. Have them on my V-strom and wife has them on her Versys as well.
With the upgraded suspension and decent tires, it corners well. Not like my Buell, but hey, what can you expect from 1960 technology. Waiting on a custom made carbon fiber leather flat saddle reminiscent of the original 50's and 60's sporty seat. A few other changes in mind as well. The sporty is one heavy SOB, though.
Welcome home and thats a damn fine Sporty.
Thank you for your service.
And your bike is very cool, too....
SWEET ! Had a 75 as well, it was a damn fun ride ! Great job on yours, nice mods and great paint and chrome.
Looks great with the ceramic coated pipes!
How about a picture of it next to the SRX600?
