Oh yes, have a stock Iron and a Fourty-Eight start at the same place and same time; Depending on the distance, the Iron would easily win for the sheer fact that the tank is bigger. The Fourty-Eight and its peanut tank will be stopping every 60 or so miles (depending on what you have added on) for gas.

I've ridden both, owned a 1200 Custom for 4.5 years before getting my Fat Bob. There's NO WAY I'd own an 883! Might as well get a KLR 650 if you want to go that slow. My advice is; if you want a Harley and are considering getting the 883 because you can't afford the 1200, WAIT! Wait until you CAN afford the 1200 or better yet, a big bike. You'll get spanked by everything on wheels with an engine if you get the 883. It's a dog! And face it, no one wants to be on a slow bike. That's like having a really nice slow car, WHY???
