Iron 883 is the BEST
By Brian(Owner), Apr. 15, 2009
I have to say, I did not like the flat black series of motorcycles to start with. My 17yo son did. He was on a Suzuki C50T 800cc bike and would sit on every bike in the Harley shop. Myself, on a wing for a long time, now on the '09 Ultra, WOW! Well, I decided to surprise him with the Iron 883. ... Read Full Review

Excellent Bike

I was worried about a few things when I looked into this bike. My main concerns were that I'm 6 foot even, so I worried about the mid controls being uncomfortable. Also, the 883 engine size might be disappointing.

By Andy Stacey(Owner), Mar. 11, 2010
I had decided to buy a Harley Sportster and tried them all. I decided that my favourite to look at was the Iron 883, most comfortable handlebars were on the nightster (being wider and further back) and most suitable foot controls were on the custom (being forward mounted). So I ordered an Iron with ... Read Full Review

The coolest bike around.
By Marq(Enthusiast), Mar. 28, 2009
I am in love with this cool machine. This bikes' all black, no nonsense look surpasses even the HD Nightster and the very cool Triumph Bonneville.

Not for kids and and not for posers. Straight up and neat, this ride is in my near future. Read Full Review
