I love my Nightster. I wanted a V-Rod; rode one all last year but it was out of my price range, so I "settled" for the '09 Nightster. Was I ever wrong! She's got all the snap I need, and is very responsive. I'm 5 feet 3 inches with a 31 inch inseam and it's very comfy. My hubby loves my bike too. He has a Night Rod. I have the forward controls, mini apes, Stage 1 Screamin' Eagle air intake and exhaust. No windshield.

I'm looking for a new seat as the stock one is a bit hard. The suspension is stiff. I don't imagine a rigid would be much worse, but I love its performance, and its minimalist look. There really isn't anywhere to put bags unless you get the saddlebags, which I don't want. I use a small leather backpack, works great. On longer trips I have a HD backpack that fits everything I need and is very comfy. It doesn't have a gas gauge, just a dummy light that tells you you're out of gas so you have to pay attention. I don't need a bigger tank, 'cause my hubby's tank isn't much bigger, so we need to fill up at the same rate.

Have the Nightster -- love it better than riding a crotch rocket and better on my back. But when I do get home with my husband after riding, all worries are gone and we have our down time (wine time and good food) better than seeing a shrink. He has his own bike; we both have freedom when we need it.

I started off with a 2008 Suzuki Boulevard S40 as I was a beginner rider but found that I needed to upgrade by the end of the season. While on vacation, I came upon a 2009 Harley Davidson Sportster Nightster XL1200N Orange and Black paint scheme. I sat on the bike and instantly knew that it was the bike for me as I am only 5 feet 2 inches. I stopped in at my local H-D retailer to place an order and have loved it from the start.

I have done a couple things to the bike to make it mine and add some comfort. I added the dark logo gas cap cover, derby cover and timing cover. I purchased a Mustang seat as the original seat is pretty firm, some Vance & Hines Short Shots in black and am considering forward controls.

Overall, this is a great bike but I think that if you are taller than 5 feet 8 inches it might be too small, at least that is what my husband thinks. He said it's fun but feels too small for him. That's OK with me, just means that he won't be riding my bike!

I started on an 883L Sporty directly after passing my test and loved it to bits for nine months. Unfortunately it soon felt underpowered for the kind of riding that I was doing and I began to search for something with more energy. I found a second hand 2008 Nightster with S&S Cycle pipes, HD heavy breather and racing chip and I was in love. She absolutely munches the miles between petrol stops and is spine-tinglingly fun around the curves. You could not want for more power and the low centre of gravity and relatively low weight make handling a dream.

Styling is extreme and I have added bullet hole heat shields, HD seat and fender bib and she is absolutely resplendent in her black and orange colourscheme. Perfection on wheels! When I'm not riding, I'm dreaming about riding. You couldn't get a better bike in my mind.
