Having not been able to drive anything remotely fun for the past 7 months has been tough. So this past month I got around to getting my bike licence. Before buying anything I plan to rent a few bikes to see what kind of ride I like. This past weekend I rented my 1st, the Harley Davidson Forty-Eight.
I’ve never been a huge fan of HDs but thought I would give this one a try. I really like the classic look, fat front tire and under bar mirrors:
We spend the day roaming around the island, and since it was actually my 1st time spending more than a few minutes on a bike it was a great learning experience.
The peanut tank looks awesome, but hold next to nothing inside so I had to fill it up twice before returning it. Shifting gears was nice and precise, but the clutch was a bit heavy. Maybe just something normal for these bikes.
As a rule, the place I rented from installs pipes on all their bikes as a “safety measure” but I had to say the sound of the 1200cc was awesome and despite not being super fast was really a joy to rev out and listen to. In the coming weeks I plan to rent a few other bikes. Really looking forward to it, but really could use a good drift car about now
