What do you guys think about Harley's Iron 883? What do you think about Sportsters/Harleys in general? I'm thinking of getting one after I sell my Honda Shadow.

My wife's cousin and her husband owned a Harley dealership. When I first started riding we talked a about a Sporster. She said a 1200 was fine but would absolutely refuse to sell me an 883 because they were seriously under-powered. That's all I can tell you. Never rode an 883 or a 1200.

Well I currently ride a 600cc honda shadow...which I don't really feel is "underpowered." Maybe that's just because I haven't been on a bigger bike. Either way, I'm not trying to race anyone or set any speed records. I just want a reliable motorcycle to ride around town and occasionally on the highway on the weekends.

I ended up getting a 1200cc Harley Sportster by the way. I'm glad I went with the bigger engine size.
