  • In my first episode of my new weekly motovlog, I discuss the reasons as to why I prefer riding a Sportster. Sorry about some of the wind noise! I had a deadcat windscreen on my mic, but the wind just got really strong a few times!

    I’m a short guy (5’ 6” maybe), but I just want the bike because I like how it looks tbh.

    Great video!! Definitely subscribed to your channel. I’m 41 and just about to start riding and the Sportster Superlow is what I’m aiming for to start off with. If you don’t mind me asking, what size bars do you recommend for someone who is 5’5” ?

    • Amador Robancho

      The Grow Sesh being my height, I always thought a Harley was too big for me; therefore, I never rode but my cousins are all riders and are pressuring me to get a Harley. The other day, I went to the Harley store here in town to look at the Sportsters. But the Road King got caught my eye; it was love at first sight. I sat on that bike and had no problem planting my feet on the ground. The salesman said that I can even drop it an inch but it is perfect as it is. It was comfortable. I’m going to take that rider course then gong right back to purchase that Road King. I’m very excited!!
      Thank you for your reply,

      Amador Robancho, you can go stock or anything. Comfort and satisfaction are what count man! I know guys your size that have stock bars & other that have swapped more than once. It all comes down to your personal preference my friend. As my dad said when I was about 16 “if it makes you happy, throw it on and grin like hell!” That ride is yours bro-experiment, tinker, learn and enjoy the adventure. Every biker will tell you, once you start customizing, you never really stop. The bike will forever be a work in progress. That’s the joy of the lifestyle man. Just keep the wheels down, the throttle twisted & the babes begging for more man!

    Great first video. I even enjoyed the music which is rare for me. So many of these cruiser guys play that "hip" kinda music. Not sure how to describe it. I'll be checking out your other videos.

    I'm seriously considering a Harley Davidson for my next bike. Currently riding a 2018 Honda Shadow Phantom. The relatively low weight is nice and the MPG is good but it would be nice to have something with more power. The problem is that all the other similar-sized bikes that are more powerful have smaller gas tanks and less MPG: Indian Scout, Sporter 883 & 1200 etc. The new Softail Low Riders look nice and they have a 5 gallon tank but I'm not a fan of all that chrome. Plus they are heavier and way more expensive. Can an aftermarket 4.5 gallon tank be installed on an Iron 1200?

      Hey! Thanks man! And yes, an aftermarket 4.5 gallon tank can indeed be installed on an iron 1200 👍🏼

    I do NOT like any Harley-Davidson motorcycles. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rikuo_Motorcycle ru-clip.com/video/rPzNV3Hu6mc/video.html
    ru-clip.com/video/PF3yJrODglw/video.html From 1930 until 1958 they had a factory in Japan making Harley-Davidson motorcycles and supplying Harley parts for the American market. You just can not trust a Motorcycle company that does a thing like that. They even sold the company to AMF a bowling ball company for a few years. As bad as things got during the 1930s depression Indian (the proper Indian) motorcycles never did anything as bad as this.

    That's one reason why I like cruising with some friends rather than these big Harley group rides. I'm in a CMA chapter and we usually have a couple Harleys, an Indian, a couple Yamahas, a GOLDWING! We're all friends and we have a great time.

    I love bikes,that 883 is my favorite bike, I never had a chance ride a bike at all. Now that I'm out the military, and got all the time in the world,my body is too f#cked up for two wheels now lol I still watch sportster videos to learn from because I'm getting a Can am Ryker which is they're sportster model,since I cant ride 2 wheels, that's going to be my 883. Plus my wife saids that with my PTSD anger issues,she doesn't want me on 2 wheels. Lol

    My first Harley was a 68 xlch I wish I still had it Kickstart only what a beast,now I have a 2001 Road King now then I'm totally happy with that but you know what I had just as much fun on my Sportster probably had more chicks with my Sportster because I had it all custom painted up like a bobber and it was bad to the bone.

    Ride what you wanna ride and who cares what other people think.....Is that why you're whispering?!?! Lmao! Just kidding, bro! Seriously though, who really does care....riding is all about the freedom, the wind in your face, the open road with absolutely no destination and love! Nowhere in there did it say riding is about what kind of bike your ride and it's been that way since day friggin one! There's guys I know that ride rigid custom choppers on long Poker Runs and cruises and absolutely love it even though hitting a bump/pothole feels like you just ran over a friggin Prius and there's other guys I know that love to ride full dressers and complete suspensions so it feels like you're riding on air so the only thing that truly matters is how comfortable and happy you are on your favorite style. Not everyone's the same, not everyone's a 1%'r MC badass, not everyone's a weekend warrior and not everyone's a basic Dyna kind of rider. There NEVER has been a rule book for riding and there NEVER will be! Ride safe my brothers & sisters \m/

    I rode one of these fuckin things once; about 15 miles across London and back.I liked the noise, but the brakes were rubbish, it was too heavy, gutless and didn`t want to go round corners. the hadlebar furniture was good but the bolt on bits, footrests etc looked cheap.
    they are unique, thank fuck. If you think it is quick you should try almost anything else.
    The V Rod was fun. I still reckon the Moto Guzzi Le Mans (1) is as good as you`ll need.

  • John Oakes

    My '93, 883 has 110K on it and it's been pretty reliable. I bought it new and don't see any reason to get rid of it. Seat, bars pegs , gearing, everything is set up for ME! I've changed from a belt to a chain to gear it the way I want. It'll cruise at 80 with a pretty well stock engine.Open up the exhaust and put a Screaming Eagle air cleaner on it. Ignition Module and find someone who can do a GOOD ,multi-angle, valve job. You don't need a different carb or open pipes. Stock cams are OK. You can get 60HP on an 883 with them. Idle nice and are great in town. If you've got an early 5-speed, '91-'97, put a '98 oil pump in it. Scavenges much better. There's other things you can do. The list is endless so do it your own way. The above has worked well for me. I'm old now 75, and don't ride much so I doubt if I'll do anything else to it BUT, I've got an idea! Putting a front head on the rear jug and make a dual-carb Sporty. Yes, the beauty of a Sportster.

    Really well said. Thank you for making this video. My uncle is a big Harley guy and while he doesn't knock the Sportsters, he's always said "oh you'll get rid of it in a year" but he can also afford a $30k road glide. I was considering a sporty before but this makes me confident that it's going to be a great option for me not just in the beginning, but for years to come.
    Thanks again!

    I had a vrod muscle and rode the piss out if it. I got tired of the feel and wanted that traditional harley rumble. I have the exact bike you have only in denim grey, same year and all. I will eventually build it to a 1200 or 1250. Its a great bike. Haters gonna hate. 🤷‍♂️

    • BEACHBIKER

    Before I got my street glide I had a sportster 1200. I absolutely loved that bike and would still have it today if I didn’t have to trade it in towards the street glide 😔
    I wanted a bigger bike for comfort and stability. Either way I would recommend a sportster for anyone, great bikes.

My Honda weighs in at 575 lbs. I'll consider a Sportster when I retire, as I live very close to a H-D dealer and would like to own an American bike.

      With a windshield, I can go 70-75mph all day long with a mustang seat as well. Stock seat will have you spitting up blood within 30 minutes of riding at any speed lol. Without a windshield, I can handle 60-65 comfortably, but can very much still do 75-80, but it becomes taxing after awhile.

    Making videos with titles like this and explanations like you're coming out of the closet just make more of a negative image a reality. Just ride what you want to ride, damn.

      You missed the point entirely. And guess what? You watched a video like this. Meaning I succeeded. I'm producing content for my RU-clip channel that will grow my views and subscriber count. I don't have to defend my bike choice, but I'm more than happy to make a video about it because it attracts new viewers and attracts lots of comments like this one 👍🏻

    The evolution motor is not the same as a Evo motor they are all different. Do your homework.

      Yes it is. Evo literally stands for Evolution. You need to do your homework.

    I ride a 1200 Sportster. I'm 270 lbs. Just under 6 ft. Has plenty of power, love the torque! Much better to ride than a monster bagger for around town and is just fine on the highway. Love it!

    Mine a bit more basic than yours, I got a 1996 1200S. Carby rigid mount engine, love it and I'm 60. Been ridin' over 50 years and still love it with a passion. If someone wants to give me a run and thinks the there're better than this old fart. I just roll out my Honda CBR 1100XX and then ,let the young fuckers try and keep up. Good vid mate.

    Sportsters rule ok ,,,,, simple as that, you can not find a more customisable , fixable, reliable go anywhere bike with so much history. I have two, I have done 85K miles on my first one, it will get to 100k no problem. I ride with all kinds of riders and the sports bikers often ask me " how does it go round corners so well.

    Personally, I'm a Triumph guy. But I like pretty much all motorcycles. These days it's hard to find a truly bad bike. Too each his own, just get out there and ride.
    I'm 6' and around 210 lbs and I spent last summer bopping around on a little Yamaha TW200 and I had a blast putting around in the woods and cruising around the back roads.
