883
By Michael(Owner), Dec. 8, 2009
I love my 883. It is great on gas and great for work every day. it takes a long time to warm up and get tunning right.
I have had the bike for 2 years and bought it used. I am surprised how quickly it goes through tires. Great starter bike, ready to move up. Read Full Review

I have owned my for 9 years, bought new. I love it and is a great starter bike, however I am 6'2" and it is a little small for me. Time to get something bigger for longer rides. Read Full Review
