    Hi,

    I am going to be a new rider soon and wanted some advice on what kind of bike to buy.

    Currently I am looking at a 1993 Heritage Soft tail with about 40k miles on it.

    Another bike I am looking at is a 99 SuperGlide with 16k miles.

    I am wondering which to buy and what sorts of things I should be aware of when riding it like one bike has a tendency to rub the foot pegs when riding for example.

    I am 5'4", so the seat height is important as well.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    The 93 would have a lower seat height but the 99SG would return a better ride out of the two with a better suspension and rubber mounted engine.

    glider pretty much summed it up......H-D does offer a sett of rear shocks that will lower the superglide 1 1/2 inches
