Hi, I'm new to the forum and to bikes. I've been wanting to own a Harley since I was a kid (24 now) and now I can afford one. I'd like to buy a new or lightly used harley. THis will be my first bike, I've not road a one before. I have been on quads, 3wheelers, sleds, and most other types of equipment but not motorcycles. I've been looking at the XL1200L sportster, the XL1200C sportster, and the Dyna Super glide. I have done a little research and have seen that the 1200 is more of a favorite than the 883 is when it comes to sprtster models. What would you recomend for a first bike, I'd like to stick with HD and not and import bike. Also I do plan on doing my own maintenance, I am a diesel mechanic by trade. Sorry for the long winded post and thanks to any replies!
