    love the lowrider just the way it is you mentioned T bars everyone has opinions and I hope I don't make you mad but those t bars are completely comical especially the lucky Dave's and when people are on the bikes that are their on they look like they belong in a Shriners parade or under the Big Top with the big red ball for a nose , those bars look stupid

    Probably the best Low Rider review I've seen, very good.  This HAS to be my next bike, hands down.

    The point about the adjustability of the seat pad and the bars, is not that they are meant to be adjusted again and again but so that the bike can fit a wider range of potential buyers. Its a good idea.

    I like the ride adjustable aspects. One might adjust the handle bars a few times to find the perfect spot and that usually comes with mileage on long days. I like the handle bar aspect. I also like the two into one exhaust.

    Is it just me or is the oil in the crankcase on the 103 engine? I don't see an oil tank and all the oil tubes like you see on the other Harley engines. I really like the adjustable handlebar position feature. I have really short arms and legs for my height. All my height is in the torso, so these adjustable features would probably really help me to fit the bike to my body. Really liked your review.

    Hi, im thinking about buying this bike as my first Harley, when I first went to the dealership I asked for an Iron 883 but they told me that I would get bored of it in one year so thats why I decided to take this one as my first HD. what do you think about it? do you think its too much power for me to get used to? I've tested other bikes like vstrom 650, bmw f700 but man I love Harleys. Please answer. great videos btw

    Will this be a perfect bike for a beginner? I looked at some sportsers but this one caught my eye more than anything

    Matt, love your videos. They're very informative. I have watched a lot of demo videos and yours are by far the best. Thank you for all the hard work you put into these videos. Keep em coming!

    always enjoy your videos brother. I just had to tell you, I agree 100% on the Sons of Anarchy. …I tried getting into it too, I've been riding for 35 years. Just couldn't get into it. Not sure if you remember me, I almost bought the 2015 Road King with the stage 4 kit on it back in November. I ended up getting the Milwaukee Eight. I loving it! Hope to ride with sometime, I was gonna ride with Mike M to Laughlin next weekend but I need my first tune up. Ride safe bro.

    Nice job. I really appreciate your insights and honest opinions. Refreshing. I don't feel like I'm being sold as much as educated.

    What is it about the Fat Bob that you like in terms of performance? Does it handle better than the low rider? What is better about it? I am open by the way..

    you're right about adjusting it once and leaving it but at least you can adjust it without having to buy different bars or risers or seats

    Hi Matt love the video's! The adjustable stuff is for when a rider sells his bike on ! he was six foot but the new guy is only five foot six! hence the adjustments in the seat, bars and possible windshield would help! Just a thought! Keep making the video's, I think we need to own at least three Harley's to enjoy all aspects of the different riding style's! My Rocker c I ride around the beautiful island of Cyprus, and on my wish list, a Harley Davidson Breakout, the new Harley street rod, a Heritage Softail, Road King with the new Miwakee 8 motor, or Fat boy, or even a Softail Slim is on my list, once you get it in your blood there is no going back!
