When you start to learn about motorcycles you realize that it is a little world of it’s own. People are passionate about their bikes, and about what is superior. Some people keep bikes that have been around fifty years just because of their loyalty to that product. This loyalty comes from extremely well made bikes. One such bike is the Harley Davidson Sportster.
Sportsters have been around since 1957 and although parts and technology have changed, the quality of these bikes stays the same. They are built to last. Harley Davidson is known for their attention to quality and detail and it shows in every bike that they produce. They use strong, reliable parts and they test their bikes multiple times to make sure they are running correctly and are safe for the average user.
People use motorcycles for different reasons, some people like them for short trips around town because they get much better gas mileage, and they look awesome doing it. Other people ride bikes for long trips. Gives them a sense of thrill, of being out in nature and having the wind sweep across their faces. Others just like the culture that comes with buying a Harley Davidson, and the instant support group that comes with it. Whatever your reason for riding sporster motorcycles, there are going to be some major benefits.
The sportster, although not a luxury cruiser by any means, still gets the job done in both short and long drives. It is reliable, hearty, and lightweight which makes it great for around town. They also have well made engines that can last a long time for an extended road trip. They come with many accessories including leather saddlebags, geometric suspension, and tanks for just about everything.
There are a few things to keep in mind when getting a sportster. First of all if you intend to make long trips with a partner than maybe this is not the bike for you. The bike comes with a kind of one size fits all seat, and is not super comfortable for two riders. Especially if your passenger is a little overweight or freakishly tall. Second it might be smart to invest in some added lights if you intend to do a lot of night riding. If you are riding at night during the rain, only having one light will slow you down quite a bit. However, if you are a single rider the bike is great for solo trips and you may only need to take a break every 80 to a 100 miles or so. Despite these few things the Harley Davidson sportster makes a great addition to any collection.
