    Try one of these on Geoff, I rode one not long again and it's the first Harley that was ergonomically ok for me off the floor, I'd still mess with the engine but seat, bars, suspension and even the floorboards were all good.
    Might not be your cuppa but worth a blat to see mate.

    Grease Monkey, the main reason I'm getting rid of my Street Glide is that with my arthritis and angina the weight of the Glide is getting a bit much at low speeds.

    I need something a fair bit lighter so I'm going to take a 1200 sportster (maybe an Iron 1200) for a decent test ride and see what I think.

    You will need a low one then, my old 1200 was pretty tall and not that easy to paddle about

    Yes I thought about it but Trikes don't really do it for me.
