Harley-Davidson 883 Iron

Now I’m going to be totally honest here. I’ve never been the world’s greatest fan of the Sportster. I’ve never really felt comfortable on it and maybe that’s why when I was asked to ride the 883 and give my thoughts, I wasn’t really that excited.  How could I be… its Harley-Davidsons 2nd smallest motorcycle they have on the current production line and its only 883cc.
