      lol I'd love to outfit myself with a bigger bike to compliment my sporty eventually, but I'll never get rid of the Sportster. Too great of a bike for around town riding.

    Good for you.
    I built a 1988 Harley Davidson XLH Sportster.
    Best Harley I've owned.

    I've been on a Road King for years, but last spring I picked up a 08' 1200 Sporty. I love it. My buddies like to poke at the Sporty, but she is a great bike, fun to ride, and the EVO engine is pretty darn bulletproof. I don't care what anybody thinks about the Sporty. It's an awesome bike and I probably spend more time on the Sporty than I do on my Road King these days.

    • BEACHBIKER
      BEACHBIKER  2 дня назад

      Amen Ty! That's why I love a Sporty so much. They harken back to yesteryear with a more raw and pure motorcycling experience, are dang reliable, and just fun to ride around town and tinker with. Keep enjoying it! 🤘🏼

    i'm 65 and have owned sportsters since i was 18. presently own a pair of mint XR1200's and that bike is the finest H-D ever made. sportsters were great right out of the box in 1957 and continue to be. the best driveline ever built by H-D and the feel of a well tuned sportster is unlike any other bike in the world.

    Put some miles on a big twin and you’d change your tune. Not necessarily a touring bike, but ride a softail or dyna for a month and you’ll sell your sportster.

    • BEACHBIKER
      BEACHBIKER  14 дней назад

      Honestly man, I'd love to have both. I love the raw motorcycling experience a sportster delivers along with it's 60+ year heritage. I'll never sell it.... But I'd love to build it out with the hammer performance 1275 kit. Maybe one day I'll get a street Bob or something for the longer highway riding, but I love my sporty for around then stuff.

      Talking about the low end torque bro. 883's are very powerful from light to light. Top speed is obviously a different thing.

    Where'd you get the gloves?

    • BEACHBIKER
      BEACHBIKER  16 дней назад

      Got them on Amazon! They are technically "driving gloves" and not motorcycle gloves. I wanted something to give me better grip and deflect bugs from my knuckles, but without being too hot and bulky so that I'm uncomfortable. Leather driving gloves are perfect for that! ✔️

    I love my sporty. It looks like an unassuming '95 883 with the natural finish engine but I'm rocking 100hp from a Hammer Performance set up. I really dig running over big twins. ( it's almost unfair) lol

    Amen dude. I'm 6'2 and love riding my 883. Doesn't matter what your on as long as your having fun and I love it when a 60 year out dude pulls up next to me at a light on his 2015 stock road glide and says "taking the wife's bike out". Nah dude this my kick ass sporty that I modded myself because it's the easiest bike to work on by far. But there just those kinda people sometimes tho 🤷🏼‍♂️

    Love the sportster.....just sold my Nightster in November and got a deal on a 2017 Road King I couldn’t pass up. Check me out on Instagram kidmoto22....I’ll be making the move to motovloging at some point in 2019....Little more difficult for me living in ND. Currently -2 with temps to reach -25 this weekend. It will be a while before I’m on my new bike!

    Damn brother you've definitely helped me make up my mind. I'm recently looking into purchasing a 2016 XL1200C Harley custom but have been thinking I might be to big for it I'm not tall just 5'8" but am 250lbs so was thinking I might look to big (fat) on it. Part of me says fuck it and what anybody thinks if I like it and I'm happy who cares but at the same time I dont wanna look ridiculous LOL.
    Any opinions from anybody on here would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    • BEACHBIKER
      BEACHBIKER  Месяц назад

      No problem man! Yeah hopefully you can testride that thing soon! I'll be looking forward to hearing how it goes!

      +BEACHBIKER thanks for the tips brother. I hoping this snow melts quick cause I'm supposed to go for a test ride soon. If all goes well I'll be on it soon. I'll keep ya posted. Ride safe brother and as always rubberside down.
      Thanks again.

    • BEACHBIKER
      BEACHBIKER  Месяц назад

      Dude at 5'8" your totally fine! That bike comes with forward foot controls, so you'll feel comfortable on it. Install some mini ape bars on it and that'll keep your posture more upright and help with keeping your stomach from feeling bunched up like it would be with lower bars that make you lean forward (speaking from experience lol). You'll love that bike dude! Go for it!🤘🏼

  • Glenn Davis

    ...............best thing about an 883 - you can buy ANY 883 cheap (mainly because everyone wants a 1200) , any 883 EVO year - and call HAMMER Performance in Idaho and order their custom Jugs and forged piston kit and bolt on over 80 to 85 hp in three hours for around $500 to $1000. This three hour job will smoke any production Harley. The 883 is the key because on the small head combustion design gets the compression ratio just right to build good power. Best $500 you can spend and doubles the stock power. they offer 1250 cc and 1275 cc kits. Cheers

    • BEACHBIKER

      Amen brother! Who cares what anyone thinks. It takes some strength and endurance to ride a raw Sportster... Especially on longer trips. "Tough guys" like to tout their ride glides and whatnot, but those things have every creature comfort short of a built-in coffee maker for crying out loud lol. Sporty's represent an era of motorcycling that was raw and real... And I love that!

    I currently own a 2014 iron 883 and I absolutely love it. There is nothing else in the harley lineup that is like it. I like the murderd out look. The plan is to install the big bore kit because I dont like the look of the iron 1200. Great video.

    I like your enthusiasm and agree with your points. I bought a 1200 roadster this year and went through comparing with many models, as I am not particularly attracted by the Harley myth. One point you made was a decisive factor: the classic new bike. I thought of the roadster as buying a new built air cooled Porsche 911. Classic old school charm and character, and overbuilt

    • vincent beijing
      vincent beijing 2 месяца назад +1

      BEACHBIKER yes i do! Rode 8000 kms in 6 months, in curvy mountain roads, no purpose, just for pleasure. I love the handling and the brakes, the engine was a bit lifeless until the stage 1 made it much more in tune with the great chassis. I am considering going further in upgrading the engine to stage 2 or 4. One thing I don’t like though is that my passengers complain a lot about the seat comfort.

    • BEACHBIKER

    OK I loved my first bike also, but do yourself a favor and experience some of the other bikes out there. There are much better bikes even in the Harley lineup. I loved riding my Jap four cylinders all over the country but as I grew older I went to larger and more comfortable bikes. And don't put down technology, my Goldwing has SRS airbags, abs and linked brakes and the Honda 6 cylinder has been documented going over 400-500 THOUSAND miles. lol Knees in the breeze is all that counts in the end.

      I have a SPORTSTER XLH 883 year 2005. I ride the bike for 13 years and since the bike had 0 kms. For me, it is the "complete sensation" of riding a motorcycle.
      For the record I have a 2016 BMW K1600 GTLE 160 cv, comfort, a jet, and all the current technology, which I love.
      Buuuut, the fun and sensations of the H-D SPORTSTER, are "different" and incomparable! LOOK, FEEL, and SOUND. 😊😊😊👋👋👋

    • BEACHBIKER
      BEACHBIKER  2 месяца назад

      Oh I don't doubt that a Honda can go 400,000+ miles! I love anything made by Honda. Incredible reliability. And I'm sorry if I was misleading to make you think I was against technology in bikes. I was meaning that Harleys do a great job of hiding modern technology within old school styling and build quality, which is awesome! And my two Harleys aren't the only things I've ridden. I actually used to own a 125cc scooter that was awesome, which was actually my first bike. I've ridden a Triumph Bonneville and liked it as well!

      BEACHBIKER yes I left the stock mid controls. I’m 5’10” they fit well. I also like miss because I can stand on them when going over big bumps. I did stage one with Vance and Hines 3 inch slip on’s and A Vance and Hines naked air filter and tuned it with a Vance and Hines fuel pack three. I put a Harley Davidson swingarm Bag on, A Dart fly screen. Willie G clutch cover and ignition cover, hey Willie G gas cap it’s just easier the open in the stock round one, flipped the mirrors removed front fork reflectors put on Avon grips.

    Loving the Channel! I also have a sportster (‘19 48 1200) and had new parts going on the afternoon I got it home. So fun. I totally agree with the feeling of having a new vintage bike. Love that they are timeless. People always ask me what year my bike is thinking it’s some restored old bike. Subscribed and can’t wait for new videos.

My wife and I just moved back to South Florida this fall, and that put a halt to making videos. Changed my channel name to BEACHBIKER because I've got a lot of motorcycle content planned with beach rides and beach themes infused into the content. Stay tuned!

    Good video! I agree on everything you said.I've got an 883, the power is fine. I also have a 1000 cbr rr, so I have a reference.
    Where in Florida did you live? I'm in Pinellas county.

    • BEACHBIKER

      Awesome! Yeah the low end torque of the 883 is insane. I love it. I actually just moved back to Florida this month from Texas! I'm in Stuart on the east coast about 40 minutes north of West Palm Beach. Once things settle from the move, I'm going to be posting LOTS of motorcycle/beach videos. Stay tuned!

      Hey Alonzo! Nice! I love the 2016 Iron. I get most of my aftermarket parts from J&P Cycles website where you can select to shop for parts that are compatible with your bike model. JPCycles.com

      I have a 2016 iron 883 as well but I'm fairly new to riding. I've only had it for about a year now. Where does one find all these aftermarket parts? I'm not sure where to look for motorcycle parts

    Chad, new sub here, I'm so glad you're vid popped up on my homepage. One of the best commentaries I've ever seen on this subject. I'm 56 & on my 3rd Sportser, a 1995 1200, picked it up 1 yr ago with 1,500 orig. miles, incredible bike! I love my bike & don't care what anyone says, they are awesome bikes & are a blast to ride. I have no problem keeping up with my buddies on bigger bikes, they can do it all!

      You'd be fine man! I'm 6'2" and 260 lbs... And I fit just fine with the forward controls and the mini-ape bars. Before those installs, the bike felt a little cramped on the dealer lot.

    • BEACHBIKER
      BEACHBIKER  5 месяцев назад +1

      James Wolfe haha true, but not from mid October through about mid April. The weather there is pure paradise during those winter months... Like zero rain, 75-80 degrees everyday, and low humidity. Perfect riding weather! My plan is to shoot and post 2-3 videos per week in Florida after we settle in from the move. Stay tuned for lots of awesome content man!

      Chad Ainsworth I’ve been toying with the idea of a sportster. I’m 5’8” and 220 I was wondering if I’d look way to big for the bike lol

    Love the Sporty's . I've owned many bikes , some big twin and a touring bike at one time ,but always seem to go back to the sportster . Just love the feel of them . I Currently have a 1997 1200 that's been mildly chopped and bobbed , and a 06 1200 roadster as my set out to travel bike and completely content letting it take me anywhere I want to go .Great video !!

      BEACHBIKER  5 месяцев назад +1

      434silverbullet thanks man! And yeah, I totally agree. Sporty's just fell right in size and power. I'm going to be setting my 06 1200 custom up as my touring bike eventually.

    Sportster has the best engine...H/D admits it. Watch it in the hands of a pro...bike is upgraded...it is still a Sportster...You almost think exact same as me on bikes and Sportys.
    I am 63 and ride m3y '13 Sporty alla time. Even had a head on with car at 55 mph, in Pearland Police records...Car's fault.(didn't see me)...my stage 2 and plugs and wires give my bike 73-74 hp. it can haul ass! have beat many big V-Twins in past few years and ride to Dallas from Houston every so often ..couple times a year. Love it in traffic.

    I'm now 64. My first Harley was a '77 AMF sportster. I currently have a 2017 SGS, 2012 Bonny, 2015 XT250, 1965 Bonnie T6, and I just bought the new Iron1200. I did a stage one on the Iron myself which was so easy. Love all my rides. I use my 2012 Bonnie for camping, my XT250 for exploring, my SGS for touring, my Iron for 30 to 50 mile rides, and my '65 bonnie for just tinker with. This Iron probably will be my last purchase. Started on a sportster and will end on one. Show me how you have your back pack mounted on your Burley sissy bar. I have one on mine and would like to see how you did your backpack.

    • BEACHBIKER
      BEACHBIKER  7 месяцев назад

      Awesome man! That's what I'm talking about! Just love of motorcycles, not one brand. Sportys are pretty special though. I love the new iron 1200's. And the Burley sissybar is the best! I bought a 3x1.5 foot flexible cargo net with tons of hooks on it for wrapping luggage to the sisbar. I overlap the cargo net a couple times around the bar and my packpack, stretching it tight and it does the job well!

    I think the Iron 883 is my dream bike! You forgot to mention one thing. After I test road one and parked it, the smell from the engine was intoxicating. I'm not sure what I was smelling, the air cooled engine, when you park it just lets off a beautiful smell as it cools down and you hear the engine go *tick* *tick* from the engine! I know I sound crazy LOL!

    • BEACHBIKER
      BEACHBIKER  7 месяцев назад +1

      DJ BASSGHOST BAY-BAY haha true! It's the smell of pure gas coming out of the exhaust lol. If you swap out your stock mufflers for some other ones without cats in them, the smell gets even stronger! Haha. My old '71 Camaro produced the same smell. So you did buy an Iron, eh??
