    I got my first bike on Friday, and damn am I chuffed!

    Ladies and Gentlemen, my 2016 Harley 883 Iron Sportster:

    [​IMG]

    Already been tearing bits off her, on there is a new air cleaner (S&S Stealth), new pipes (Cobra 3" Slip-ons) and a funky fuel management remapping gadget called a FuelPak3 - talks to my phone and allows tuning on the fly :cool:

    I'll be honest, there aren't many bikes I like - Not keen on sports bikes with all the plastic fairing, not keen on big cruisers, and tbh don't even really like other Harleys, but when I first set my eyes on a Sportster I knew one had to go in my garage some day!

    Great fun, superb build quality, torquey as hell, couldn't be happier :)

    Edit: Heres an updated picture since my recent bout of messing!

    Eh? It's 2015! I always find it weird when they release updates that don't match the year.

    It's well worth joining one, I'm in a Swiss bike club and we do 3 numerous day long tours each year.

    Harley's/cruisers are like muscle cars to me, I like them and the sound is non comparable to any other type of bike. But I just wouldn't own one myself, not saying its not nice as I do like it! :D

    BTW If you like Harley's you should definitely watch SOA.

    Edit

    Are there any fees in the club you're in? Some clubs around me charge you for membership...

    No, why would there be fees? That's a bit weird.

    I think like those that have commented before....

    I'm not a fan of H-D bikes but that thing looks mighty fine :)


    Local ones to me its around £100-150 a year for membership.

    Really like these, I'm really considering one, but not sure if I'd be wanting more power soon after getting one. Really need to be saving for a house deposit though, so will likely be stuck on my bike for a few more years yet anyways.

    Like the look of that, and not too much chrome so you don't hide it away as soon as you see a single cloud floating in an otherwise blue sky

    Nice bike, but I'm not a fan of cruisers. Mainly because they bottom out over about 15 degrees of lean, I mean how are you supposed to go round corners!? :p
