Default Harley-Davidson Iron 883

Anybody on here have one of these? Just seems to call to me. I'm not a fan of chrome and this bike for a HD doesn't have much. The price is right being around $ 8 grand.

Any opinions out there?

I looked at one before I bought my STR. Ultimately the cons kept me away. Firstly for me its a HD too many people that have Harleys have this elitist attitude that HD's are the best bike ever made. The bike's weight at 550lbs where the triple is 400. I wanted something somewhat unique which HD's clearly aren't.

I think it's a pretty good looking motorcycle. However, it would probably feel really boring compared to your Street Triple. They may be nice to just cruise around though.

I'm not anti HD but ....3.3 gallon tank....553 lbs dry.....53 crank HP......1.6 inches of rear suspension travel..... it sure would be a much different experience than your Street Triple. Might be fun around town though

Talking not selling my Street

I love my Street, and am not even thinking about selling it! I just find that motorcycles are a bit like guns, once you buy one, ya start wanting to get another one.

Those specs were what turned me off, I felt like after a few months I would get bored with and want something else, which hasn't happened with the STR. I really like the look though.

53 hp? I rather get a 250 and have more fun. Get a duo-sport.

I got to ride one a couple years ago - it felt like something you'd build in your barn out of WWII-era tractor parts. If you really sit and look at one, that assesment wouldn't be too far off, lol. It's a pretty gutless machine, if you go down this road at least get the 1200cc-class engine, whatever they call it.

I'm not a cruiser guy, but I also have rode a Victory Hammer - it was soooo much better built and finished then the H-D. The only H-D I would consider owning would be the XLR1200, with the race package installed. I will say that the simplicity of H-D machinery is somewhat appealing in the fact they are super simple to work on, and the parts/aftermarket support is phenominal.
