Very down-to-earth conversation, similar to a friend discussing something. I wish the article was longer.

I've got a 2013 custom Sportster. Loved the bike from the moment I sat on it. I'm 5 feet 3 inches with a 31 inch inseam. I would agree the bike is a bit top heavy, but the setup was perfect for me. My first bike was a Yamaha Virago 250, so this was quite a step up. I bought a quick-release windshield. There are two different height windshields, so getting the right one for the primary rider is key. My husband likes the bike, and often takes it out for a spin just for fun. When we travel together I have no problem keeping up with him on his 1100cc Yamaha Silverado Classic. I haven't noticed extreme vibration, but haven't done more than about four hour stretches riding with a food break.

I bought a 2013 Softail Slim. It has the 103 motor. From seat to ground is 24 inches. I love it. I'm only 5 feet 4 inches and about 110 pound. I have no problem riding this bike.

I bought a Sportster 1200L in '07. It was my first bike and I had no idea about a lot of things I know now. I loved that bike and yes, the back of the bags were unfinished. Yes it was top heavy and for me at 5 feet, I still wasn't flat footed and since it was a low I couldn't lower it any further. Also, the mid-placed footpegs become uncomfortable on long rides. I can't imagine that Harley was able to improve on those things. However that bike with all it's imperfections allowed me to experience some really great times. No, it is not a touring bike, but you can make it what you want 'til you know how to handle what you want, then you move on. I got a 2014 Softail Deluxe and now I'm really ready to tour. Safe travels.
