|So how do you pick the one that's best for you?
Our advice is to start by finding the model that really speaks to your heart - the one you love to look at. Then, check out the
feel when you sit on the bike. They're all a little bit different. Hand, foot and seat position vary from bike to bike. Some
have narrow bars, some wide. Some have foot controls that sit below and some are forward. Some have floorboards and some have
A general observation is that people with long legs tend to like bikes with forward controls. Those with shorter inseams they
seem to prefer bikes with floorboards. The best way to find out what's right for you is to come in and try a few on for size.
The good news is you really can't make a bad decision. Hey, these are Harley-Davidson® bikes after all. They all hold their value, and
they're all in demand. Of course, the best decision is always an informed one. And our knowledgeable staff is always available
to answer any and all of your questions. We'll work with you to find the bike of your dreams!
