Why are you considering get a sportster? Because it weighs a little less? Or because it would be a little lower to the ground?scrumpy wrote: I have an 01 HD Dyna LowRider, bought it last summer. I'm 5'1, 110lbs. I am having trouble parking it (backing it up). I was going to sell it and buy the new sportster low but my friends keep telling me that i will get use to the weight. I love my bike and can ride it no problem, its just heavy to park it. Is there any tips to backing it up? I cant take it out alone for the fear that I will be stuck. I get so nervous (been riding 4yrs) when its time to park it and everyone says to plan your spot, but its kind of hard to plan when there may be 100 bikes around. HELP!
