Harley Lowrider Bikes

Anyone here like Harley lowrider bikes?

My dream is to own a road king or soft tail and turn it into a lowrider!

What are you talking about. I saw two pictures of hot chicks, and only one of a motorcycle.

I'm not sure those shoes are the best for riding, lol.

I have always wondered if low rider bikes (or cars) have problems with the road scratching the bottom of the bike. If you go over a speed bump or pot hole or something like that, wouldn't it scratch up the bottom?

Depends how much you lower the car or bike. I have a slightly lowered Audi (part of a coil over perfermance suspension package from 2Bennett Audimotive) and you very much have to be careful with steep driveways and speed bumps. Deep snow is a no go in that car, you will be plowing the snow built up between tire tracks on unplowed roads or driveways. The benefit of bringing the roll center closer to the Mike Axis (the name of the line through the car or bikes center of mass) is reduced roll in corners without having to use anti-roll bars and much less (zero in my car) brake dive on hard stops. The trade off are the problems mentioned above.

Lowering bikes you can ruin the basic steering geometry and introduce instabilities that are not present on the stock bike. I vividly recall a guy on a slammed bagger on an LA freeway trying to keep up with me in traffic on my old K100RS. Every time we opened it up between packs of cars and passed 80 mph his bike began to weave and hewould have to back out of it and slow down. Funny to watch, but probably not so funny from where he was sitting.

I live in a parallel universe but have a vacation home in reality.
