    1. Buying experience: i bought my motorcycle (iron sportster iron 883) in the later half of 2012 from bengal harley davidson, kolkata. The process of purchase was simple and effective. 2. Riding experience: the riding experience on this motorcycle was always awesome on expressways and flat roads, irrespective of tough traffic being on the roads. The acceleration and braking were the best thing about it. The simultaneous vibration bore the hd trademark and i loved it. Then came the bad roads, the potholes and the bike suffered. The ground clearance was less. And bad bumps often scraped the lower portion of the bike. The ride on such roads was outright hard and bad. I changed the fork oil but it proved to be no good. The solution that the showroom offered was costing 1.25 Lakhs as it involved changing both the front and rear suspensions. So, the bastards were basically giving me 4 suspensions for the cost of a honda cbr 150 / yamaha r15. I denied, put my foot down, went home and did as much research over the months that i could. Finally, a few months back i bought two progressive 412 13.5 Inch rear suspensions and two 412 front fork springs with progressive fork oil. I imported it from us and the entire kit (inclusive of custom duties & taxes) costed me 34 thousand bucks. And boy !! has it done wonders to the riding quality. The motorcycle is now sexier than ever. I still have to be careful around the bumps and bad speedbreakers. But the potholes are now history. 3. Details about looks and performance can be found on hd website and other 3rd party websites . Nothing extra to add from my side. 4. Service and maintenance: in the past 4 1/2 years, i have had 6 servicings only. And on an average, each servicing has costed me about 9 grands. And that goes for most other models as well. This motorcycle is basically very tough. If you run it regularly, even for your daily chores, it can do without maintenance for long periods. The parts really last long. Very long. Comparatively, the triumph bonneville costs 30 grands for a single scheduled servicing. Mindfully, it will do you a lot of good if you start servicing the motorcycle yourself after 3 years of purchase. Because by this time, your zero debt insurance will come to an end and 3rd party insurance rules will apply. For keeping the motorcycle in a trouble free condition, one must, and i insist, must do the following: (a) keep battery detached from the bike, if not running for more than 20 days. Also, buy a battery charger when purchasing the bike. Don't even think of replacing the hd battery with other cheaper ones from the market. They will die out miserably coz the bike draws heavy current while starting. (B) keep wd 40, x1-r lubricants, black shoe polish (as engine blackener), 3m power brake cleaner, autosol polish, formula / meguiar's tire dresser, glycerine, non-organic brake pads and loctite glue / thread locker, apart from the general toolkit. You can learn their application and usage on youtube. It will help you a lot. 5. There isn't much left for me to say anything on pros and cons. The aforementioned points have summarised it all. Thanks. Rohit singh
