New to the site and new to Harley but not new to riding in general. I kinda had a 2009 soft tail deluxe fall in my lap so its been pretty fun and may have turned me from Victory to Harley. Anyways.... I am 6'3 and I do feel pretty comfortable on the bike but I would like to be able to have a more forward lean somehow, Any recommendations as to how to do this?

Adjust or replace your bars.

Welcome from north Texas!
I'd recommend putting some miles on it before changing your bars. You may get used to that stance and like it!

My:2cents. At 6'3" if you do an all day ride on your Deluxe, riding posture is everything. After a 100 miles and leaning forward you'll put a lot of pressure on your neck and lower back. I found that was the case on my Road King so I swapped out the stock bars for reduced reach bars.

The difference might be if you have a windshield or not.

The forward lean counteracts the pressure of the wind on your chest.

I've been riding with drag bars for nearly 30 years now.
