I got my chance last summer when I took my ninth motorcycle in ten years—and first American bike—to see my folks in N.
It was great fun. I was surprised that a lower and and flatter 2-up Mustang worked better for me than the beautiful, scooped two-piece it came with, or the wide Mustang solo touring seat which had me scrunched too far forward and on my tail bone. The flatter Mustang was harder but let me scoot around more. A key for me is that I left the pillion empty and often sat back there for a mile or two.
When sitting on the front portion of the seat, passenger pegs definitely help! My turned-down buckhorns helped too, probably along with my dual gauges and low seat keeping me from being too much of a sail on my naked bike. Sometimes I had one foot on one set of pegs, and the other on another set. Mine being an , with a 3. It was a serenely mellow ride like that.
There was more expense for taking a used bike and sorting a few things—tires, new front disc to replace the one that we messed up doing the tires ourselves!
But yeah, if you can fit and make a few mods, Sportsters are great for touring. Not long ago a friend and I went to some of our favorite twisty roads, but this time with three couples on baggers. Those turns might as well have been four-way intersections with no cross traffic but yield signs. Light bike touring is really a lot of fun! Another thing I noticed about Sportsters is that they have sweet spots, and finding them is half the fun.
Where you keep the tach needle generally helps find some motor sweet spots for smoothness. When you are somewhere on the tach where the motor is just not as smooth, there are foot positions on the pegs which make vibrations nearly disappear. The Vision seems to defy some laws of physics. A newish Bonneville motor is a treat to be admired, and I love the ergos for around town and wish I could find such a seat for my Sporty , though at 65 mph on a naked Bonneville you have to hold on for dear life, or risk flying off the back of that flat seat.
Thanks so much for sharing. Great stories and tips in here. I found that having a couple different positions that you can shift to every now and then helps a lot, which is why the highway pegs are nice. Hopping up to a higher position where your leaning off of your tailbone can give you a lot of staying power. Lean back on it from your seat or hop up and have the extra support from the higher one! I am glad you are still keeping up here. My first riding was in Taiwan on cc scooters, for a few days in the south end of the island.
Your pictures from China make me nostalgic. I got my first Sportster about six months ago and really want to start doing some longer rides. Can you provide some thoughts on 1 Have you found the tank size a challenge?
B which model do you have? HD now offers a touring seat that has the zeppelin adjustable air bladders built in. Also you can depending on model go to a 3. Also you may want to have your wheels checked.
I ride mine over 70 mph with out problems, but again models may very. I hope I helped a little. I now have some highway pegs coming in the mail for my engine guard which I also have auxiliary lights on. Most of the people who bad mouth them would give up important body parts for a Pan, Knuckle, or Shovel yet they all have about the same size motors with less output on heavier frames.
It just might be down the road a little. Sorry for the delayed response here! Unfortunately comment notifications had somehow been turned off so I missed it. Glad you enjoyed the article though. Thanks for reading and sharing your own experiences! Got some beautiful mods on your sportster there. Like the idea of the inflatable seat. Have you heard of the new touring model Sportster HD just recently announced? I also like the fact that the Sportster as tourer is getting some recognition.
Thanks for visiting Rubber on Road and congratulations on your plan to get back in the saddle: A couple things I would say: In this article above I point out a couple ways I customized my Sportster to take on longer trips the longest was 8, miles around the US, which included two iron butt days: You can see my write up about it here.
Not counting overnight motels, here were the stops: Recent mods that all came in handy included HD heated grips, HD take-off touring bike air shocks, Progressive front fork cartridge, and dual Mustang seats. Let me explain that last one. Before this tour I tried, for laughs, putting a Mustang Vintage Solo on top of a Mustang 2-up Day Tripper, held on with bungees to the upper shock bolts. I bought both used from a fellow who put a larger tank on his bike after doing a conversion.
The 2-up was a bit short but somewhat pleasant for letting me move around, and the solo was plush but pushed me up too far forward. Also, the extra cushioning between me and the bumps helped a lot. For the mile trip to the shop I stacked another seat on top of my regular seat to have one to ride home on. It was high up but really comfy. It took over three years to think seriously of trying it again and it quickly became my everyday thing.
It looked goofy and took a couple experiments with bungee locations to get it stable, but it was remarkably comfy. A friend told me he had a friend do that too.
The next day I found a dealer and they put one in for me.
