The only thing better than a street-eater is a custom street-eater, like the Sportster® 883 Custom you see here. We begin by giving it the smooth-operating, rubber-mounted Evolution® engine ...

... and 4.5-gallon tank. Then we go to work from there. We raise the handlebar, lower the suspension, and give it easy-to-reach forward foot controls. It all makes the riding position feel right. The custom look wouldn’t be complete without a 150mm rear tire. Chrome Profile Laced wheel options available for both front and rear. And for the finishing touch, we even gave this ride a sleek two-up seat. Because the only thing better than eating up miles of endless asphalt is sharing the experience.

If you have to have a H,D and just learning how to ride then the 883 is ok. But I think for a New rider, that isnt that tall .The 800 drifter would be better.
