Having owned motorcycles since 1973, The Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider seems to be my favorite. It's fun to ride. Thr large easy starting fuel injected engine hasn't ever let me down. I didn't want to say that because I don't want to get jinxed. Anyway, from the comfort, smooth ride, and strong engine remains the top three attributes that come to mind. This beautiful motorcycle has been garage kept. Serviced and maintained regularly is very important to me. The appearance and functionality aspects are very similar to a new Harley despite the 16,500 miles It's traveled. As far as dependably, I would trust it today to travel anywhere in the 48 states. I have chosen to keep this Harley as stock as possible. The Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low is like it came brand new from the dealership except for the 16,500 miles she's been driven by only conservative adult riders. As father time is catching up to me, I've decided to allow a younger person take over the controls to enjoy what I have been blessed with. If you are someone you know is interested in a great bike at less than half price of a new one, have them look me up here or on Facebook.

It's powerful, that's for sure! You'll pass everything else on the road! Except the gas station. It has a 4.8 gallon gas tank. Which, in my opinion is too small. A 5 gal. tank would be better as gas consumption is high. But, what do you expect with a 1450cc motor! Chrome everywhere. Which is time consuming... read more
It's powerful, that's for sure! You'll pass everything else on the road! Except the gas station. It has a 4.8 gallon gas tank. Which, in my opinion is too small. A 5 gal. tank would be better as gas consumption is high. But, what do you expect with a 1450cc motor! Chrome everywhere. Which is time consuming. But looks great when you get it shined up. An all around great bike. With ONE exception. It needs forward control's. It would be SO much more comfortable on longer rides. Other than that, you can't beat it! It'll do what you want every time! Mine has NEVER left me stranded after 4 year's of hard riding. Like anything else, you have to preform your maintenance every time! If you treat this dog well. You'll have a friend you can count on every time! It'll never let you down!

I purchased a 2005 Lowrider in Feb of 09. Today was the first day I rode it. Picked it up from the dealer after winter storage and this day could not come fast enough. I was coming off of a Honda Shadow VLX 600 and that was a great bike to get back into the saddle with after a 10 year hiatus. I soon realized that I was going to need a bigger machine. I looked at the Sportster 1200 as well as the Lowrider. I went to buy a Sportster and it sold before I got to the dealer, and BOY am I glad I fell onto the Lowrider. I was a little intimidated with the lowrider at first but after 5 minutes of riding, it was like I had owned it all along. I can't get over how SMOOTH this bike rides. She has a nice low center of gravity, making it easy to handle especially in the corners. She takes the bumps like they are nothing, and wind resistance, wow she trucks right along. VERY VERY VERY Stable machine. The Fuel injection is great, she starts right up no problem. The stock seat for me is comfortable, then again I am not very tall so that probably has a lot to do with it. I have no problem flat footing the bike at all, the seat height is perfect. If you are a smaller rider, male or female, this would make the perfect bike. The only two complaints I have is, 1: The Mid controls take a little getting use to. 2: The Initial price to get into this machine is higher than it should be. If you have experience riding and are contemplating a Sportster, do yourself a favor and move into the Dyna series if you can afford to. You don't have to buy new. You will be happy you did, trust me!!! My final words, this is a top Notch, quality built, stable Smooooth Ride!

I had a total of 1 mile riding on two wheels over a motor. I had to get a H.D. as my first bike. Powder black coating with pimped out chroming is very eye appealing. Feet touch the ground easily for my height which was ideal. Re-sale value on these bikes is tremendous. don't loose much off the lot with a H.D. Attention to detail is great!!! No complaints! Based on carb'ed not fuel injected. Also, last year H.D. is putting out carb'ed bikes! Should add value to the right customer in years to come!

I recently purchased the Low Rider as my first motorcycle, instead of starting out with a smaller bike. It's turned out to be a great decision! It handles much better than I expected for its weight class. Quick maneuvers in traffic or in tight places are not a problem. Very smooth ride out on the road with good feel. Brakes are excellent once broken in sufficently. This is the 2005 model with fuel injection; black with lava red. Looks great as is. No real need at this time to add chrome.

Coming from a 1999 Sportster 883 it's like riding a Cadillac, even though my husband thinks it rides like a rock, he owns a Honda Shadow Spirit. The bike is very comfortable(it should be for the price). Mileage is excellent, rode 175 nonstop miles on one trip, and didn't even hit reserve. Acceleration is excellent. I have developed a leak at the gear shift shaft where the gear shift bolts on, at least it's under warranty. After all it is a Harley. I also have a problem scraping the pipes and bottom of engine when cornering. We stiffened the shocks two clicks but I still occasionally scrape. Taking a trip to California in a few days, if it breaks down I'll have to consider switching brands. Once my Sportster hit 23000 miles it broke down too often. So far I'm satisfied with my Low Rider.
