Thank you for the great the article. I am under 5 feet tall and bought a 2011 SuperLow for my first bike. I am having difficulty taking off as it is pretty torquey at the start. Also I need to reduce my stretch on the foot controls. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated on how to reduce take off torque and leg stretch.

Hi Tracy,
Reducing the stretch on mid controls is tricky. You may need to search for an aftermarket peg or mini floorboard that brings it back an inch or so.
As for the take-off torque, you can control your takeoff by mastering the friction zone. Remember, you are controlling how fast the bike takes off by how quickly and how much you release the clutch lever. This simply takes practice.
If you are struggling with this and don't feel safe, I highly recommend a smaller cc motorcycling to learn on. The 883 is a pretty big engine that can easily get away from an inexperienced rider. It's best to start small and master your skills before moving up to a more powerful bike like a Sportster.
Wishing you the best!

Before I bought the 2017 883L SuperLow, I had a 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 636R. Though the Harley is a lot better to ride than the Ninja, I don't have the need for speed from the Ninja. Riding the Harley is unmistakably speedy too, and I feel a lot safer riding the Harley fast on back roads. And it is fun too! Mostly it is awesome for mountain cruises—5 stars for that! It's not big or heavy, it glides as you do. The 883 is the choice for all categories, male or female. It is not a "girl 's bike!"

I am a new rider and have been looking for the perfect bike for a few years. I am 5 feet 1 inches so I thought about bigger bikes. I have to say when I saw the SuperLow I didn't realize it was even a Sportster. I thought with the tank and the wider forks it was a bigger bike. Didn't have that Sportster look. It is so comfortable. Being tall I had to put forward controls on it and move handlebars up but now she's perfect. Couldn't be happier with my 2012 SuperLow! Love, love love!

The handlebars are too high. It forces my arms to bend at the elbow and at the wrist. This limits my riding to a couple of hours before fatigue. It also reduces confidence when making quicker turns and creates a large pocket of air at the torso when running on the highway. The HD catalog or site doesn't provide options in handlebars for this model. I think this SuperLow may be the redheaded stepchild of Harley or Davidson.
