This translates to faster turn-in, making the bike much easier to flick through the corners. We had plenty of opportunity to test this faster turn-in during our test ride through the hills outside San Diego. The Low Rider S is a sporty bike, but what limits it is its lean angle. While its clearance of 30.1 degrees of lean angle is noticeably more than most other models in Harley-Davidson’s lineup, it could use more. During our test ride, I found the footpegs scraping earlier than I’d hoped when taking a more aggressive lean into a corner. The front end suspension felt compliant enough to keep the bike well poised during aggressive riding and over bumps and ruts, but the rear end felt stiff. Despite preload adjustability, the shock’s spring proved to be heavier than my weight could properly compress, though I would imagine most average-sized Americans (around 180–200 pounds) won’t find the rear suspension as stiff as I found it.
