    Harley-Davidson 883 iron

    Greetings from the Granite City

    Good Morning All,

    Thought I would introduce myself, my name is Scott and I am from Aberdeen.

    After 12 years of riding Triumph (i know, i know) I decided to mix things up a little and see how the other half ride. So for my only my third bike, I sold my Thunderbird Storm and took a huge CC reduction to a reasonably priced Iron 883.
    the verdict so far.... to my surprise.... highly enjoyable. Sure i can now appreciate the scenery more and find it surreal when listening to a fast paced song how sedately the world flies by, however all in all I am very pleased.

    Not one to sit around I have already put my stamp on the bike with a few modestly priced non HD finishing touches. (had to buy Imperial tools!) and a few more planned (who needs baffles anyway?).

    So if you are around Aberdeen and happen to see a 'red denim' (read red-lead for those of the ilk and age) 883 with brass bits feel free to say hello.

    Fit like Scott,

    Welcome to the forum from an exiled Heilan' man in Calderdale, West Yorkshire.

    I'm originally from Dufftown, Banffshire.

    I have owned and ridden Meriden Triumph's in the early 1980's, a TR7RV Tiger 750, a T140E Bonneville 750, a T160V Trident with Norman Hyde 871cc big bore kit, and finally a TSX-4 750.

    I now have a 2011 Iron 883 which I bought new, Sportster's are ideal for customising and putting your own mark on them. Hope you enjoy the forum, we're a small but friendly bunch of H-D owners.
