Hey everyone, I've heard really good things about this forum and look forward to surfing this page.

I do not have a Harley yet. I'm in the process of taking the Harley course to get my liscence and am looking into what bike I should get.

I'm 6'6" 205 lbs. I am just lookin for a bike to go bar hopping really. A cousin of mine has a tricked out 1200 sportster but even though sitting on it feels comfortable I dont know how well I'd be able to ride it because of my height.

What do you guys recommend? The Dyna Super Glide Sport is what has really caught my eye but after sitting on it I feel more comfortable sitting on the Sporty. Whats the deal with that?

did you ever sit on a softail springer?? long wheelbase & extended forward controls make mine very comfortable & stretched out feeling! i too ride a mountain bike as well as competing in observed trials & feel that off road riding will definitely make you a better rider on the street--teaches you a lot about traction & how to maintain control under adverse, changing conditions---just remember, trees don't turn left in front of you!!! good luck & ride safe!!
