I been thinking about this for a couple of weeks now. I bought a 2015 CVO limited at the end of September love the bike rides amazing, on my shoulder there is that little guy saying go for something small to throw around. I'm 6.1" about 260 I been looking at a sportster iron 883 or a sportster forty-eight. My dealer told me a dyna will be good but I don't want to spend that kind of money right now.

I think there are conversion mods you can do to the CVO that would streamline it a bit for bar hopping. If I got a second bike it would be a dirt bike or ATV for sure!

Do it. When I rode dirt & woods, I was about your size and rode a lot of different bikes including a Husky CR400. But one of my favorites was my Honda XR200 precisely because I could throw it around. Bigger is not always better.

i have an ultra as well but really want something smaller too. I'm pretty attracted to the on/off road type bikes.

I second the forty-eight. I think they look badass and I rode a buddy's. They are a cool change from a touring bike. You could make a big statement with one. Flat black slash cut pipes and an old bomber jacket. For my money that is the way I would go. You know it will not be a maintenance problem and a lot of fun.

A friend of mine just sold his I wish I knew he was doing that I would if taking it. That's the one I'm leaning more towards too. I have to run this by the wife now

I bought my wife a 48 and she loves it. I am 6-3, 230 lbs. I feel like I am riding a mini bike but it a fast little bike, maybe quicker than my 95 inch heritage. Feels like I am riding a rigid. If it was mine I would have to put a more comfortable seat and shocks on it. I put the 16 inch apes on it and we both like those better than the stock ones, took the crap stock seat off too. All in all I enjoy riding it around town, other than constantly filling it up. No gas gauge is a bummer.

I like my 03 heritage as my second bike great for running errands ( saddlebags) and when friends fly in they can ride it

You might want to look at a Super Motard (cross between a motocross and roadrace bike) they are very light, very quick, and handle!

Look at the Vrod as they are available cheap used. Lots of power!

Look at the 72 it is a nice thrasher bike.
