my HD Roadster 2016. I used for 5 years from brand new, it still go strong

I love my roadster, I service regularly every 4000-6000km and keep changed primary oil changed every 9000km coz I believe the often I service then better for my engine. I had this bike for 5 years never let me down. 1 Tank of fuel will last 160 km maximum. It suit for people have a bad back so you can stop refuel and relaxed before do another 160km. Show details

Love the whole package

I bought my 2005 XL 1200 Custom on a whim. Super happy with it. Great for highway jaunts as well as around town. Plenty of power and effortless torque. My wife is comfortable on the back too. Well built and solid. Handling is more than reasonable. Rear suspension could be better. Exudes smiles every time I ride it. Great vibe and character. It’s an original. Not some retro styled wanna be. I love my Ducati’s and Moto Guzzi’s, but the 1200 Custom fits right in my garage as a viable alternative when I just want to chill and just enjoy the ride. Big enough and enough power. Not so big like you’re sailing a cruise ship. I highly recommend it. Show details

Fun bikes

I bought this entry level XL883L Superlow Harley for riding around our property with the kids, I didn't want an expensive bike like my other Harley's so this bike has been perfect. This is only an entry level bike which I thought would be great for my sons at this stage.We ride it daily and have had it for 9 months now and like the mid mount controls for the open road

So much fun and a joy to ride

Upgraded from a superlow 883

It is superior in every aspect

More comfortable, handles better, you can lean into corners with confidence

Superior blue with lots of chrome

Admiring looks and thumbs up where every I go

As a shorty, it fits me like a glove

I ride each day, commuting to the office and longer rides on weekends

Already clocked up over 2,500 kilometres

I have a 2000 sportster 883. Can I put any other kind of pushrods on besides solid ones?

Completely unsure to be honest. I thought they'd be hydraulic by then, but Screamin' Eagle or S & S would be your best go to sites.

Hello guys!!

I bought a new iron 1200 a few days ago and I just found that it’s full of slight scratches especially on the fuel tank.
Tank is full of circle scratches and it’s seems that somebody was cleaning the bike with wrong cleaning equipments..
I’m going to bring back the bike to dealer for sure..
Also I started to worry that my bike was not a brand new.
Is there any chance of that scenario?
Is there any way to confirm that my bike is actually brand new?
I will appreciate your help guys !

Thanks Michael. I got mine done yesterday at Brisbane. $430, I guess I'll be paying these prices while it's under warranty. Thanks again mate.
