    Cons: price, small tank, reputation

    Summary: I grew up on the back of a Harley. Hubby has owned a Harley since we have been together. When my oldest son was old enough to ride, he went everywhere with Daddy. So mommy either learned to ride, or stayed at home. I took the motorcycle safety course at ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Instant respect; infinite customization possibilities.
    Cons: Small fuel tank; dealer service costs too high.

    Summary: I recently purchased a 2000 Sportster XL883C (with the 1200cc big bore kit) at a very reasonable price. After 30+ years of riding Hondas and Kawasakis I definitely found the Sporty to be different from those bikes, but in a good way. I weigh about 200 ... read more

    Nov 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Lighter than the big Harleys making it easier to handle.
    Cons: A bit more challenging to ride with a passenger.

    Summary: The sporster is a great Harley to start with. I have a 1200CC which is my first bike. It has enough horsepower to fun, yet is small enought to easily handle. I would recommend the lowering kit that will bring the height of the bike about 1-2 ... read more

    Pros: Light, quick, traditional seating position. It's a Harley
    Cons: A little top heavy, Rear shocks, small tank.

    Summary: Harley Davidson XL1200C, Not a big twin, but a fun around town back road motorcycle. If you were once an off road rider and want to get onto a Harley, this is not a bad transition bike. You may find in a year you want a big twin, but understand why you ... read more

    Pros: rides smoother that the older bikes
    Cons: They say that most do develop an oil leak but it can be repaired

    Pros: Outstanding Appearance
    Cons: None

    Summary: Having always ridden on Japanese bikes in the past, I was simply astounded when I purchased my first Harley. The XL 1200 C has far surpassed my initial expectations of a Harley product. The chrome features which are standard issue on this motorcycle are ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: styling
    Cons: slow, loud, vibrates, unreliable, basic

    Summary: I don't own one, never will, I'm a Honda man. But I can't argue with buying a Harley, riding it for a year, then selling it for more than you bought it for. I rode with a buddy of mine who had a mid 90's Sportster 1200. I have a 1977 Honda 750 ... read more

    Pros: quick(for a Harley), cheap (for a Harley)
    Cons: gas tank size, slow(for a motorcycle), PRICE, reliability

    Summary: This was my first Harley and my last. This bike is crap. I don't care what "Harley" people say, this bike is NOT fast. Any 600 can blow it away, I'd bet a 250 can even beat it. It does accelerate quick, but that's about it. This bike is not bad, ... read more
