    Sportster 883 Iron 2017
    Thanked: 5


    Hi from a Wrexham, North Wales. I'm a 47 yr old having a mid-life-crisis! In the past 3 months I've gone from no interest in motor bike to passing my DAS.
    In the past 2 weeks I've completed and past Mod 1 and last Thursday, at 8:30am in -1 temp passing Mod 2.
    I'm now after an 883, not sure what colour yet. Annoyingly I drove over to a pre-arrange test ride at Wolverhampton HD to find them closed on Sundays. (Not Impressed!)

    Hello Welsh Whiskey,

    Welcome to the forum from the West Yorkshire Pennine's of Calderdale.

    In the winter some H-D dealerships aren't open on Sunday's, they also cut the opening hours during the week.

    Best to check the dealerships website for opening hours before setting off, there's nothing worse than arriving at a destination only to find it closed. Chester H-D is a good dealership, my mate travels from Halifax to Chester H-D rather than the much closer Leeds H-D, he really rates Chester H-D very highly.

    The Iron is H-D's best selling model in the UK.

    Other members will welcome you soon, this is a small forum so be patient for reply's.

    Welcome. I passed my tests last year at the ripe old age of 55. I had progressed through a variety of sports cars and ended up with a very nice one just sitting in the garage not being used because I was paranoid about parking it and also the traffic/speed cameras basically took a lot of enjoyment out of it. I try and take my Road King out every weekend and just going to Box Hill, Newlands Corner or an HD dealership are enjoyable. Traffic isn’t a problem and I have found so many roads I didn’t know existed. Enjoy it when you get it but take care at this time of year!

    Welcome fae Fife. The Iron is a great bike, I can thoroughly recommend. I've had nine almost 2yrs, and of the many nosedive had, it's the best. You'll probably find a lot of dealerships,arnt open on Sundays. Both the ones in Scotland are shut then.
