    Default 8 overÖor over the top?

    Hey Guys/Gals and/or whatever Harley motor you identify as..haha.

    So I’ve been into/riding Harleys for quite a few years. Have a 2006 Sportster 883L and a newer 2016 Dyna Lowrider. I’m now in a position to start making changes on my sportster without being without a bike if need be. My style/taste has changed so much over the years or just learned appreciate so many styles(except those massive wheel baggers hahaha). I want to go 6 over but if possible 8 over on my sportster(21” wheel eventually also) , thing is…I’m concerned about is reaching the ground. I’m 5’5 on a good day. It’s an 883 low, so the shocks are already 10.5(could be aftermarket). I can flat foot my Dyna in boots, almost flat in sneakers. I’m hoping people around my height can give some solid advice. Of course I can one foot it but I’m just curious how I will be with trying to flat foot. Lastly any solid rider advice on riding it would also be appreciated. Thanks!!

    The ride, front end flop will be horrible Add the 21" wheel, you will have hard time getting your feet on the ground

    Plenty of these style of bikes around, it's the "instant chopper look" after all. Can you sit on one? Plenty of chicks ride swingarm sportsters with 6/8 over front ends too. You'll be fine.
