Note the grainy, thumb-in-picture, cellphone-quality that makes this pic look like a sneaky spy shot.

Picked up the Harley-Davidson Iron 883 today over at the H-D fleet center. Man, I love that place and today I had the pleasure of talking with Todd Canavan, one of the Super Tech Gurus who helps run the fleet. Canavan’s explanation and overview of the Iron 883 was amazingly thorough and for this I say Thanks Todd. Good stuff. He even brushed through the magic that is the Harley self-canceling turn signal system that was apparently designed by NASA or space aliens.

Still settling into the bike and its extremely low — it is slammed — riding position. But once the cramp in my thigh went away, I was reminded why Iloved the Nightster so much. The Iron comes with narrower bars than the Nightster and I like the compact, easy reach steering. More to come as I get out and about. (For other, related Harley news — not the good kind — go here .)
