Hello,
I’m Bill and I started riding when I was 12. However, life happened and it’s been several years since I’ve straddled a bike. Well, the bug bit me and yesterday I bought a Street Rod. Unfortunately, I’m 6’5” and it just doesn’t fit. I’m all scrunched up and I know I couldn’t handle a long trip. I’m a professional photographer and want to use it for trips of 300-500 miles.

The dealer is willing to swap so I’m thinking an Iron 1200 or a Sportster Roadster. I don’t really want one of the big guys—my budget is about $13,000.

I would really appreciate your recommendations on this. Which bike would be the best fit and best suited for longer trips?

Thanks for your advice and help. I really appreciate it.

Bill

I would go with the Iron with the mini apes. Add forward controls. Just my opinion though!! Good luck!!!

If you're going to be travelling 300-500 miles you might want to consider the 1200 sportster with the 3 gallon gas tank instead of the peanut tank. Just my 2 cents.
