At 5'7 its what I been looking for since I started riding Ultra's back in 2007. How tall are you? At some point the Ultra Low will be too cramped for a tall person. I wish I was taller but it is what it is. The standard size Ultra was really to tall for me.
It feels like a Ultra Sportster,lol.
I'm around 5'10". I personally liked the seat height of the Heritage, which is about the same as the new UC-Low. I agree with you on the Limited... I don't care for the half-ass water-cooling.
You rich northerners are always buying new bikes
Oh stop....not the case at all. My bike was only 2 years old and only had 15-16000 miles on it..still new and owed less then 1000$ on it. Trade in was very generous as was the interest rate.
I think Kickstand, that at 5'10 you'd find the Ultra Low to cramped. Wish I was 5'10. Thats about the perfect height for the regular Ultra. The Ultra low is advertised for 5'7 and shorter. The seat placement on the Ultra Low shoves the rider almost too close to the front. For me it could be back another 1-2 inchs and the handle bars are very different. At first glance I didn't like them but as I rode the 100 miles home I came to appreciate the forward seat/handle bar combo. Again as a 5'7 Ultra rider its like riding a Ultra Sportster.
The 2012 was set up just the way I like it but it was problematic from the beginning. Pearl white is my favorite color. Came "new" with 300 miles and a Virginia inspection sticker(I'm from New Hampshire). Broken ig switch,broken wind deflector, tour pac lite out and has been out another 2 times, 30mpg/3rd gear front end wobble still. And at 5'7 I was flat footed but straight legged and thats with 1" think soled boots. It was really a challenge to stop with my wife on the back and loaded down.
I'm definately feeling this Ultra Low. At 5'7 and preferring the Ultra this version has been a God send by the MOCO. The freaken radio has a how to book as thick as the owners manual. I got the 6.5 upgrade,comes with GPS. And the silver Pearl is growing on me too.
Taking our first 2 up ride Sunday going to Norwich,CT.
