Photographer. and Riles

You gotta love Beach and the year-round feast of fun it proffers. First of all, it smells like funnel and racing fuel. Win. there’s the ocean, typically temps and a beach you can ride bike on. Win-win.

Oh, and once a Bike Week, which this year with Spring Break, creating a storm of black T-shirt, and 100 rock bands all playing at

It was also the perfect backdrop for to release its recreated 2014 Low Rider, a main-stage player been five years off the And not only because this was where the original Low Rider was released in 1977, but also Daytona is a showcase of originality. almost everyone is wearing a T-shirt and leather, but one hour watching the hardware roll Main Street and we’re reminded that we all want a motorcycle.

And we want one that fits us. Not in style, but in physicality. Which is the Low Rider marque stands

One of Harley-Davidson’s first-ever factory the late-70’s Low Rider not only a platform for accessory-minded inspiration, it a seat height that motorcycling accessible to a whole new

And this new bike continues tradition in a big way. Yeah, the height is super low at 25.4 but what is really forward-thinking is Harley engineers have beyond simple feet-on-the-ground which is really more physiological ease at a standstill, and to addressing full-body ergonomic and confidence factors.

Because way more to safe, enjoyable than being able to both boot tips as dotting your way down Street. If you’re positioned to your motorcycle’s handlebar and while you’re underway, also more in control. safer.

And you’re much more

Harley’s ambition with new Low Rider is huge. Let’s not make it “low,” as expected; make it adjustable in various so that we can fit an even larger of rider. So very methodically, computer overlays, Harley the ergonomic triangles—seat, handlebar, position—of a variety of riders, and malleable physical solutions.

You when you get into a car, you can the seating position in a multitude of why not with a bike? While the Low adjustably isn’t all toggle-switch it does allow for huge refinement, so much so, that engineers claim the bike easily accommodate riders ranging in height from to 6-foot-1.

In addition to placing the controls two inches forward of Dyna mounts, the key to this new is the removable lumbar seat It’s basically a removable secured by concealed screws and a plate, which allows the to look stock whether the is in place or not. It makes a difference by moving the supporting of the seat forward or backward by 1.5

Also unique to the 2014 Low is an easily and infinitely adjustable riser, which creates a change in your rider Basically, you’re rolling the toward yourself or away, not only addresses comfort and issues, but can also personalize posture angle at either a slouch or straight-up attitude. As I this isn’t easy adjustability, but the changes can be made simple hand tools.


Back to the smell of cakes and racing fuel in Beach. The Low Rider is nice to at, very classic in first-glance but with trendy wrinkle-black all over the place. Everyone the Amber Whiskey/Vivid Black

It’s a good-looking machine.

As it feels like a Dyna. a bike with heart wants to be ridden sportily, but down easily, and is further by its short suspension travel, 3.1 in the rear. We were told the springs of the coil-over shocks, allow for three stiffness provide “all-day comfort and performance,” but we’ll need to the Low Rider to a state that has corners and bumps before we it a game-changer.

We were riding the new Low back-to-back with Harley’s new SportsterT, which uses the 1200 motor, so the Twin Cam so the 103 felt gutsier than peppier than it does pitted against the larger, mills found in comparable and American cruisers. Brakes fine in the environment we were the double discs up front a improvement over the single disc on some Dyna such as the Switchback. A big bike (a 666-pounds in running order) big brakes, especially if you’re a passenger or load.

Anti-lock brakes are optional on the Low a $795 addition that for itself the first time you fall down. Harley, for the is asking $14,199 for the Low Rider in Black, and $14,929 for the more two-tone versions. It might pricey, but this factory-designed, fitment system is worth a Just ask the guy or girl who wants to the full-size Harley but can’t reach the controls or the ground.

you’re more comfortable on a you’re therefore a safer, competent, rider.

This new 2014 Low Rider stirs the nostalgia. When the was introduced in Daytona Beach in it brought a factory custom to the showroom floor. It was a bike a low-slung stature that not looked cool, but fit more than ever before.

glad to see the Low Rider return, with all the creative fitment By getting more feet planted, Harley has once moved a step ahead.
