    I actually like this bike better than the 2018. I hope they do something about the paint job before I pick one up.

      Thanks for the feedback Matt...ya
      I'm a new rider at 54 and caught between a rock and a hard place I can't ride a starter bike because they are 2 small for my frame and I'm concerned about about a bike that would fit my frame due to my lack of experience....

      I wouldn’t say too big but there are definitely better options for a guy your size like a touring chassis bike.

    The tire rubber and foot pegs are still not tall enough, which equals ground clearance. The tall rubber will absorb the shitty roads we have in this State. I'm a firm believer in tall rubber. The low profile stuff breaks.

    This thing sounds like a lawn mower with that exhaust. Straights, the only way to go on a Harley.

    Love the silver & black low rider not likening the bars on it though but the money you save from getting the low rider over the low rider S you can get some after market parts. Oh ya great review to very informative. 👍

    Matt. I enjoy our views, however, you are talking with your blinkers on when you criticise 'adjustability'. I have a 2013 Triumph Trophy (tourer) similar to the BMW Sports-tourer - it has an electronic adjustable screen on the fairing. Adjustability is on the fly by pushing a button on the handle bars. There is a real advantage here, on those beautiful warm days you lower the screen all the way down giving you a sportier riding feel when attacking the mountain roads and more wind, then on the wet days you raise the screen all the way up and you are protected from the weather and those cold days. Then there's all the adjustability in between for different conditions. Don't criticise BMW when you are ignorant on the functionality of having an adjustable wind screen.

    Hi Mat, hello from Western Australia. Absolutely love your videos and watch them every day and night. I bought a 2012 Dyna Super Glide in immaculate condition and my spouse wants a Harley now. She is 5’7” and weigh 65kg. She wants a Dyna too but I’m telling her it’s heavy to manoeuvre at slow speeds and around our house in readiness for a ride. Do you think a Sportster would be a better choice? I’m recommending the Street Rod due to ABS, great suspension and handling. She wants that air cooled Harley sound but I said she wouldn’t be too disappointed with the Rod. What do you think?

  • Ticky Tocky
    Ticky Tocky Год назад

    I test rode one of these and my feet kept vibrating off the pegs on the freeway, the rear suspension was a jackhammer, front no better, pretty worthless, brakes were not good, the thing was downright dangerous. I've had over 50 bikes in my life and used to race bikes, not a noob, I really wanted to like it because it does look good but c'mon Harley, get into the '80s and fix this crap.

  • daisy8luke

    The adjustable risers are definitely a good idea. I had to change my risers and handlebars on my Dyna, because I'm not very tall. The original position was very uncomfortable. If I had those adjustable risers, I wouldn't have had to remove and replace everything like I did. That would have saved me a good amount of cash and time !

    Hay! The FXR is that 1986 bike right? I've heard Waldo's FXR. Waldo is another dude on youtube. I've heard his on the Shade Tree Sergen's channal. Dude that thing was totally a man's bike. Well maybe Waldo put some other pipes on it or something. But if he didn't dude you don't get more manlie man's bike than that. I mean Josh who's the shade tree sergen said that it shook his house. He actually rode it once. It sounded totally cool.

    I like everything but the wheels. It needs spokes. If the Street Bob was polished this much or had this much chrome it would be a no-brainer. Otherwise, I think I'd have to figure out how to get spokes for one of these.

    Hi Matt, first of all Congratulations for all of your reviews!! I´m just trying to make my research about what motorcycle I will buy, I´m between this Low Rider or a Street Bob, I´m 5´9, my first option was the Street Bob but now I See this Low Rider and has some many extra things like the double seat, the double break disc, that the Street Bob doesn´t have but It looks a bit old school like easy rider time, but there´s not much difference in price between this and the Street Bob, I like mini ape handlebars and the look of the Street Bob, and being clear I´m against to keep buying and buying stuff for the motorcycle, and for sure I will have to do it for the Street Bob, so what do you recommend me to buy between each other? One hand the Low Rider has almost what I need talking about the parts, but the Street Bob, man love that agressive looking and the mini apes... I´ve never ridden any of both. You are the expert, do you mind give me your recommendation? Greetings from Mexico City.

    does the standard low rider handle better than the low rider s, cause I've ridden a low rider s and that bike handled like crap, compared to a sportster and a m8 road king, just wondering.

    How's the LR handle compared to the Wide Glide ?

    • Matt Laidlaw
      Matt Laidlaw  Год назад

      Chopbreaka a lot better mostly due to the less dramatic rake and trail of the front end.

    LILGAY BOOI YOUR MOVING UP TO BIGGER BIKES AND THE MAIN THING IS THE WEIGHT AND BALANCE !! WHEN YOU GO INTO A TURN AND LEAN HOW WELL CAN YOU RECOVER ?? IM IN THE SAME BOAT AS YOU AND HAVE DECIDED THAT A BIKE WITH A LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY IS IN MY FAVOR AS FAR AS BETTER CONTROL AND THE HANDLING !! WHEN YOU MOVE UP TO A 1200 FROM AN 883 YOU HAVE AN ADDITIONAL HAVE 40 POUNDS MORE TO HANDLE !! STAY SAFE THE LOW RIDER IS AN EXCELLENT STARTING POINT !! GOOD LUCK AND STAY SAFE RIDING !!

    The point about the adjustability of the seat pad and the bars, is not that they are meant to be adjusted again and again but so that the bike can fit a wider range of potential buyers. Its a good idea.

    • Matt Laidlaw
      Matt Laidlaw  Год назад

      Yea, I was probably a little harsh when I commented on that feature.

    Is it just me or is the oil in the crankcase on the 103 engine? I don't see an oil tank and all the oil tubes like you see on the other Harley engines. I really like the adjustable handlebar position feature. I have really short arms and legs for my height. All my height is in the torso, so these adjustable features would probably really help me to fit the bike to my body. Really liked your review.

    Hi, im thinking about buying this bike as my first Harley, when I first went to the dealership I asked for an Iron 883 but they told me that I would get bored of it in one year so thats why I decided to take this one as my first HD. what do you think about it? do you think its too much power for me to get used to? I've tested other bikes like vstrom 650, bmw f700 but man I love Harleys. Please answer. great videos btw

Not sure if you remember me, I almost bought the 2015 Road King with the stage 4 kit on it back in November. I ended up getting the Milwaukee Eight. I loving it! Hope to ride with sometime, I was gonna ride with Mike M to Laughlin next weekend but I need my first tune up. Ride safe bro.

  • cliffy amo

    Hi Matt love the video's! The adjustable stuff is for when a rider sells his bike on ! he was six foot but the new guy is only five foot six! hence the adjustments in the seat, bars and possible windshield would help! Just a thought! Keep making the video's, I think we need to own at least three Harley's to enjoy all aspects of the different riding style's! My Rocker c I ride around the beautiful island of Cyprus, and on my wish list, a Harley Davidson Breakout, the new Harley street rod, a Heritage Softail, Road King with the new Miwakee 8 motor, or Fat boy, or even a Softail Slim is on my list, once you get it in your blood there is no going back!

    I own a 2016 and half low rider ... in this color ,,, and im pretty sure exactly the same as the one on the vid. and all I can say is ...FUKING LOVE IT ... of course is not perfect , it has a couple of thing that it could improve , mainly in the suspension and I would like to have a little bigger fender on the front. it has helluva lot of power on street riding and super comfortable in highways. light weight for handling and heavy for stability ... at the same time ... I guess I could go on and on ...

    Nice review. I have a Street Bob with the orginal mid mount foot pegs and it's ok for me. Noticed that by moving the pegs forward on the Low Rider, the gearlever had to be extended and so movement when shifting is increased. Don't you lose some precision in the process ? Another thing, which bikes from Harley have this High output 103 engine ?

    • Matt Laidlaw
      Matt Laidlaw  Год назад

      Miguel Azevedo everything except the street bob starting in 2016? I think. And of course the low rider S is the 110. No, you don't lose any precision.

I got my Sporty to learn on, but I love touring & after a couple years have definitely outgrown it. I know the touring models are the way to go U can't argue with the Street Glide but I'm head over heals in love with the Road King!! So my question is: Is the wind you catch on a non-fairing tourer really that taxing?? At what point will I be wishing I had a fairing?? (ps. I hate windshields, I don't have any grandkids! )

      SteezBurgerz it's a great bike. I have the 2014 FXDL, and I'm 6'2" with a 33 inseam. It has forwards mounted on it from previous owner. I removed the pad too, but it's VERY comfy. The adjustable riser may move on you though, tighten that up firmly so it doesn't move on you. The 103 scoots great.
      Cons: the exhaust is weak. Sewing machine sound. The headlight is SHIT. Tape a flashlight to the forks, it'll light up better lol. And get a fuel tuner, I chose the FP3. It got rid of the decel popping and smoothed out the throttle so it's not so snatchy.
