Best Motorcycle I've ever owned

published

Purchased the new Soft Tail version of the Low Rider, which replaced the previous Dyna model. The new 107 cubic inch Milwaukee 8 engine is so powerful that the first couple of rides were a bit scary, but now that I'm used to it, it's so much fun to just open her up on the long country roads that I ride.

For such a big bike it handles really well and just loves the windy roads, as well as the long straight ones.

Purchased in June 2018 for $25,500.00.

Best bike I've owned

published

Bought the Harley Low Rider S just on two years ago and have clocked 22,000 km (which is a lot for a Harley rider) I've added V&H Big Shots and forward controls and the bike sounds and looks great. I did all the servicing myself after the initial run in service and run Amsoil in all holes. It rides solid and is the last of the Dyna's so reckon I'll never sell it.

Great bike now.

published

In my previous review, I said how my new bike would not stay charged. It spent about 6 weeks at the dealer. I have now got it back and have not had any problems since. I was not told by the dealer what the problem was but an employee said that it was software related. I am really glad to have it back and I have to say that it is a great bike. It has loads of power and handles very well. This is the perfect bike for long range cruising. Shaky start but all good now. Fingers crossed.

Never had owned a bike before, never even rode one. Bought this one in Nov. 2012, had 8400 miles. Replaced the tires and changed the Oils, filters and plugs. Can not stay off of it. Easy to ride and handles great. Have logged 5,000 + miles. Beautiful Bike. Harley did a great job.


Awesome Ride

published

I have had motorcycle in the family all my life. Honda, Suzuki, Triumph, Mustang, and BSA. All have their unique ride. When I rode the 2002 Harley Davidson FXDL Dana Low Rider I was hooked like a bass on the line. This bike is an awesome ride. You crack the throttle and this thing is a beast with incredible power and torque. You would think a bike of this size would be difficult to handle but oh, contra-ire. This motorcycle has the perfect weight to height balance. It's seat style and position makes it so smooth and comfortable to ride.
Harley Davidson has knocked this one out of the park ! I can't wait off from work to get out on the road.
I can't tell you enough. Awesome motorcycle

Better than the rest

Had all the rice burners and had good fun with them. Longed for a harley but never got round to it. I got told they were teeth chatters, they do nt stop and do nt go round bends. Well i now own a dyna low rider and it does everything i was told it would nt do. Ive one regret and that is that i did not buy one twenty years ago

Excellent Motorcycle

published

I live in mexico have had several sportys, shovel and even a panhead first dyna low and love it. I ride long distance 600 to 1200 kilometers a day sometimes have had no probs got some tommy guns 2-1-2. Regardless of what people say it sounds good (no baffle) and all in all comfortable i love it. No problems had it for a year put about 7 k on it just check it and change oil & filters and seems to go good. I recommend it and not very expensive can get some good deals used.

A little rigid but not too bad

Looking for an expert opinion on the H-D Low rider as a fist time bike. I am 5'7" about 175lbs. I have watched a ton of videos on what is a good 1st bike. I get some that say start small and grow vs. get one that you are going to be happy with and just ride and respect it you will be good to go. Any opinions on this would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi mate, its a matter of choice. I wont go into the requirements of licensing etc but a Dyna Low Rider as a first bike? I don't know if you have ridden a bike before or how much experience you have (or haven't got) All I can say is that if it is your first time on a bike, I would get a cheap crappy bike to get some experience first. You cant afford to drop a Harley.. If you have been riding for a while, go for it. Ive had a Dyna for nearly 20 years. I'm a little bit lighter but similar height. The Low Riders are good for short legs but ive fitted highway pegs so I can stretch out on long rides. A lot depends on what you are looking for. In stock trim, Harleys are brilliant at just putting along enjoying the scenery. If you want suicidal neck snapping take off and double speed limit speeds, look at a Jap bike. I had a GSXR1100R Suzuki before I got the dyna and traded it within 6 months as I couldn't control myself. It was a full on race bike with indicators. (In stock trim). The Harley slowed me down and now I love the cruise and the scenery. As everyone knows, Harleys are different and nothing comes close to the sound or feel of one.

No problems at all. As the name suggests, its low to the ground and good handling. Still heavier than a Japanese bike but you get used to it and low speed riding is fine. If the bike has been modified with a wide glide front end, the turning circle gets a bit restricted but again, its something you allow for once you are used to it.
