Yes I do own a Iron 883 2013. I am actually inquiring about the "cloth" which you wear with your open face helmet. This cloth is called Buff, named after the company which makes it..

Can you share where this item, can be bought ? I like the design you have

Belated Congrats Dheeraj! Missed this thread of yours - been really busy lately.
All your cool pics have me drooling over your Harley! Loved the bike and your pics have really brought out each and every detail.
The Harley SuperLow is really cool and makes me want to go back to my biking days !

Have a great time with your Harley and hope to join you someday in the HOG.

Regards
Behemoth

This is the problem in Bangalore. I booked my Superlow in mid August and there is a 3-4 month wait. I was surprised to see that you got it so quick. I called up the dealer here and asked him about the delay in Bangalore and he gave some generic answer which did not make any sense to me. I hope Harley guys get their act together.

May be I will call Delhi, Chennai and Hyd dealers tomorrow and see what their response is. Has anyone tried that?

Bro - 3-4 months wait itself is so painful. imagine 6 months. Even that they say - is not guaranteed. as it could extend beyond that too.

Well, the tusker Harley folks in Bangalore told me that dealers in other cities (Delhi etc) won't take our booking because there is some sorta understanding among these dealers. I haven't tried that route so I don't know if they were bluffing. Besides, we would lose 30K if we cancel the booking in Bangalore.

Many Congrats on your Prized Possession and an excellent review of your beautiful Ride.

Dheeraj Sir, any chance of an outsider (other than a Harley owner) joining Meerut Mutineers Motorcycling Club - M3C? I would love to come for the Sunday rides. Please PM me.

Cheers and Ride Safe.

Thanks mate. If you have a worthy bike and passion for it, surely you too can join the M3C. We also have a member with a Ninja ZX14R.

Yes, the HOG international membership is free for the 1st year with every bike and subsequently chargeable. My Membership Number came automatically from HOG Europe though I had to pursue them further to create a profile and change my address to Meerut. But I have heard some owners not getting this by default (like Bradhey) and they will need to follow up with their CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) at the dealership from where they have bought the HOG.

- Not a single bottom scrape anywhere on the trip. Superlow is perfectly livable in Indian conditions.
- Touched 120 with ease.
- Passed a twosum on a Beemer and a Ninja 650. Hellos exchanged.
- Going for the first service on Tuesday to Capital Harley, Delhi and also to get the HSRP fitted.
- FE is between 18-20kmpl.
- Completed 700kms. Zero issues.
