If you could get down to 260, you'd be half the man you used to be......

Sounds about right, think I need to go to the truck scales to find out how much I actually weigh. Should be somewhere around three and a quarter.

As said above, the 883 Hugger was a lowered version on the sportster, equivalent to the newer 883 Low. IIRC, it was the entry-level model with a solo seat and no frills.

I would steer clear of the "low" bikes unless you are short and can't reach the ground on a normal motorcycle. Lowered suspension = less suspension travel = harsh ride.

P.S. the good thing about the 883cc Sportster is it is easily upgradable to 1200cc. Harley sells a kit with everything needed for the conversion.

Sorta puts that 43 grams that Honda "shaved" off the engine cases of the latest CBXRRRRR1000SSSS into perspective, eh?

Yeah I get the joke on weight savings. Like my buddy telling me to buy new pedals for my mountain bike to save 20 grams. I rolled my eyes and said I can skip lunch and save a hell of a lot more than that. Same with my exhaust, granted you could use it for an anchor on a battle ship but with a 300+ lb mutant riding it whats the point?

The jokes on you my friend, I used to walk a 4 miles a day and work out with weights and push ups well up into my 40's. I got injured and stopped and within a few years it all softened up, only my arms stayed big from reefing on valves at work.

You either have to do it full time for the rest of your life or don't even start, you'll only be dissapointed

Funny you should mention that. I put my new 2Bros M5 V.A.L.E. carbon-fiber with Magnesium...(the secret ingredient that makes a man a P-O-W-E-R H-O-U-S-E in Bed!) on the Vee. The OEM exhaust, just the cans and pipes to the cat, mind you, easily weigh 50 pounds. Might be 60. The 2Bros M5 V.A.L.E. carbon-fiber with Magnesium...(the secret ingredient that makes a man a P-O-W-E-R H-O-U-S-E in Bed!) system might weigh 8 lbs total. It's like having the kid hop off the passenger seat.

It's enough of a difference that even I can detect it. Much snappier acceleration, quicker turning.
