Thanks for the great articles and real information. I am 5 feet 6 inches and have some of the same issues as you, so the bikes comparison is a great help. I now have a Honda VTX 1300Cand have been wanting a 6 speed low riding bike. Keep up the good work!

I have just upgraded my 09 Nightster to an 2011 Fat Bob and am an absolute Dyna convert. The ride is so smooth compared to the bone-shaking action of the Nightster, despite my love of that model for an easy cornering, fun, rip-roaring ride. The Fat Bob is wide around the horn and air filter but that is easily fixed with a repositioned horn cover and Screamin' Eagle Heavy Breather. My Fat Bob corners like a dream, despite being 50 kg heavier than the Nightster and I love that you have to haul it around a bit on tight roundabouts.

I'm only 5 feet 5 inches and despite my short legs the FXDF fits me really well and with a super Reach Seat, I am all over whatever the road has to offer. It's not a particularly feminine look, as a bike, but it's my job to make up for its lack of girlish charm. It is just straight out fun and its brazen, two-eyed gruntiness makes it a perfect bike for both good looks and excellent handling.

Loved the article. The author mentions a number of things I see and experience with my Low Rider. I enjoy my bike, and especially like the sound of the Vance & Hines shorts that were added on prior to my purchase. My only complaint would be I notice I have to be more careful on the curve clearance than on my previous Honda Shadow Spirit.

Thanks for all the great reviews. Let's me know I'm not alone trying to get my Dyna to fit, and to gain comfortable control. I have an '08 Dyna Super Glide, just the base model, really wanted the Low Rider but couldn't afford it and was itching to move up from my starter bike, a Honda 750 Spirit.

At 5-feet-2, I was barely touching with toes on the ground, I had Harley lower the rear with Harley rear shock lowering kit. I could touch a little better but not with confidence, and definitely not on an inclined or curved surface, or gravel, God forbid. No front lowering kit was available when I bought my bike, but just had one from The Fat Book - Drag Specialties put on this week, finally. Seems to make a noticeable difference, need to get some miles on.

The biggest help to reach ground was a Corbin Hollywood solo saddle, pretty thin and narrow but comfortable. I want to get my handlebars closer to me but the handlebar mounted speedometer limits options. Also feel like the clutch is hard to pull, especially compared to my Honda, but the Dyna engine is more than twice as big. Even with all these issues, I absolutely love the ride, the feel, the sound and the look of my Dyna. Ahe rides smooth as a Cadillac.
