Harley-Davidson forty eight test ride and I decided to buying a 48.

The first time I saw a real of the new Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight at dealer, I was smitten.

The impression is not forgotten. It was much pretty cool!

I tried riding Harley-Davidson and sports star, XL1200X  today.

There were many people that look for their motorcycle  at Harley-Davidson dealer. I suspected the world going to be Deflation? or not?.
It is because the Harley-Davidson dealer was gathering the visitor.

Harley-Davidson is a motorcycle of 1.5 times as many prices, in Japan.

I told the female salesclerk that I would like to test ride Harley-Davidson 48.

Please show me license,she said. And I take out the pocket,Yesterday I get it!  I said.
It can ride on all the motorcycles!

Since my height is 162 cm, the position of a leg is such touch in case of forward control.

My legs was completely extended at the steps.
Moreover, it is not generous.

My legs reaches the ground exactly.

Let's go to test ride, feeling uneasy.

Since the sheet was low, it settled down very much and operation was completed.

It is a torque full engine.
My body will be brought to back shortly after turning an Accelerator just for a moment.

Since a leg could not reach a foot brake when stopping at the first signal, it was quite dangerous the rear brake did not work.

Position which sits down was changed after that and the position of the leg was adjusted somehow, and after the leg had arrived, it operated.
Also for safety, it was thought after all that mid control was required.

Forward control is cool style,but Safety First is important.

The test ride was completed and I decided to buying a forty eight.
Of course, it order with an option  mid control!


harley davidson 48 XL1200X big blue parl or 883 night star ?

It has been three weeks since large-sized motorcycle license was acquired, but I would like to ride on a motorbike early very much.

I decide on the Harley purchase at this weekend.

I cannot ride,if I don't buy a motor cycle. And it decided, but My mind wavers,forty eight or night star.
Let's compare two types.

Performance does not change mostly.

On a touring, a night star with much tank capacity may be advantageous.

As for the left forty eight, gasoline(petrol) enter only 7.9L.

But this peanut tank is pretty cool and cute.

Forty eight's front and rear wheel with fat tire is pretty good,too.

A big difference is a posture of operation.
Forty eight is forward control, And  I must choose mid control, a leg does not arrive at front step and rear brake. Because I am short.(165cm)

can't Short people choose forty eight? 

No, there is a method. Forty eight's forward control can exchanges  to mid control.
The price of the expense is about 1,000 dollars.(800euro)

I am short, but a leg reaches the ground exactly.

You can exchange the position of a handle,and the position of a brake.

I want forty eight, tank color is big blue pearl.

The dealer told me, if I order this type now, might be waiting for two months by the popular color.

Decides after test-riding once again.
