The starter motorcycle

Late last year I traded a 1995 Sportster for a 2018 Sportster as if I needed a newer version of the old bike. I enjoyed that bike for 1200 miles before I realized my mistake. I thought I was not going to be riding much and to my surprise, I was wrong.

Another surprise was my wife enjoying the rides with me, and us taking longer trips. While the Sportster is a great bike, when you get on the highway, specially with a passenger, you notice the wind throwing you all around the place. To make matters worse, the lack of a sixth gear means the engine gets extra loud and hot when traveling long rides.

Here is a picture of my Sportster…

I really enjoyed this bike but it had to go. Coming up on my next article, I will reveal the new addition to my garage. In the meantime, share with me, if you have a Sportster, what do you like the most and the least about it.
