Harley 883XL Hugger Sportster (2003)
submitted by Harleyblueswoman
The Harley Hugger is a great bike for women....it sits
lower to the ground. I am 5'4" and can sit with my feet flat on the
ground. If you get the solid mag wheels instead of the spokes, it sits a
hair lower. It weighs around 480# and is fast enough to keep up with the
pack if you want it to!!!!! I got a windshield and am still getting used
to it. Thought it would be a good idea to have....but it takes some
adjusting on windy days. I got the kind that just pops on and off
though...so it is easy to remove. I had a lot of stuff put on when it
first came in....you don't have to pay for the labor then...just for the
parts!! I got the pullback handlebars for better comfort. I had
Screaming Eagle pipes added....and it sounds soooo good!!! It comes with
a solo seat....but I had a different seat put on in case I take someone
for a ride. You have to add your own passenger foot pegs though. I had
highway pegs added for kicking back on the highway. It was a great year
to buy a Harley...it is a 100 year Anniversary bike.....figured that
couldn't hurt the resale value!!! Not that I will ever sell it....I love

Honda Twin Star 250 to learn on and it was a great bike for a beginner.
I had a Honda Hawk 400 till this year....and I finally got my Harley!!!!
