I know this is the Street forum, but we are a Harley family right? so I hope no one minds my post about this here. I appreciate StoneFree's opinion (from another thread but thought I should start a new one) and would appreciate hearing from others. My first night of the Rider's Edge class was last night and while I am still waiting to make up my mind after the two days of riding the 500 (I am not going smaller than the 750) I am so torn about what bike I should start with. I consider myself a brand new rider as my last time on a bike was over 30 years ago (I'm not a spring chicken). I see most of my riding in the near future to be going back and forth to work with some totally pleasurable weekend riding, but not many cross country or even next state trips (don't ever want to say never about anything). I like a lot of the specs on 750, the 883 and of the Super Low so far. The 1200 Custom is nice too and Harley is having a great special on financing on the 2014 version of this bike. Have I given enough info for people to give me some thoughts? Thanks.While I purchased the Street 750 I rode the 500 first and took both on the freeway. No problems at all with either of them as both have more than ample power for freeway riding.
BTW I've ridden Harlys for years and I would NOT recommend a large Harley for a first motorcycle for numerous reasons.
