True!

I did find it quite cumbersome while getting my Fatty home yesterday - due to the heat! Else its easy to handle on our roads. Yeah cannot be compared to the sportys or even Street 750!

cheers!

Congratulations!

When do we get to see the fatty? What is the plan for the iron, retaining or looking for a new home?

Congrats Shubz!!! I guess I'm one of the lucky few who managed to read the 'Fatty' thread before it was moved into Assemble Line!
She looks monstrous yet so lovely at the same time. Perfect choice of color and kudos for choosing an icon.
Quick question, the other AW Fatboy has LED/Projector headlamps. Yours doesn't. Is it an accessory? If it is, you should get it. Looks fab!
Wishing you many many happy miles with it and hope to bump into you soon!

Congratulations on the Fat Boy Shubz. You've made a great choice as an upgrade, looking forward to the ownership thread. Correct me if I'm wrong, but i think this will be the first ownership thread for a Fat Boy!

Hey Shubz,

I just saw an orange Iron 883 on the road with a big backrest and was wondering if it was you. But it seems you have already moved on to a bigger bike.

How have you been, man? Is the Iron up for grabs, still?

Hey Oreen!

Yes, I have moved on to the big one. the Orange Iron 883 you saw -- i aint the owner of that anymore.

Mods - please close the thread if you deem fit or can keep it open if it benefits the Iron community to post queries etc.

Thanks

Shubz I went through the entire thread, would be great if you could summarise the salient points on what made you upgrade so early. I ask this because I was kindoff trying to finalise Iron. A following comparo between the two would also be great !
