Default Iron 883 VS Vulcan ???

I have been riding GS 1200 for the past 5 years and now I decided to add a cruiser in my garage, for that, I was looking for Vulcan 900 and the Harley 883 Iron but not sure which one would be better for me. I have not ridden any other cruiser before so just looking for an entry-level machine to get used to the sitting posture and handling and switch to the bigger machine.
What do you guys suggest? Which would be a better choice for a beginner cruiser biker??

Well , you're on a Harley site so I wonder which one we would recommend The Sportster isn't really a cruiser so it can't really be compared to a Jap cruiser. If budget is part of the equation then I would recommend buying a slightly older big twin. The 88 cube carbureted twin cam is a very good bike and they aren't to pricey and you'll have a good model range to choose from. Hope that helps mate

Just bought the 883 iron and now looking for some cheap luggage just to get used to it. do we have bags from Harley for every specific model or we have to go 3rd party brands that offer the luggage?

I googled a lot and landed on
https://www.vikingbags.com/harley-da...cycle-tank-bag
this product, price is cheap, could not say anything about the quality but I am unclear if that would fit 883 or not. Please check this webpage and LMK if that can fit on or not.

Please do share some other brands for the luggage

Mate , I always have used aftermarket luggage because I can buy what I need to do the job. If you go for just one make then you might have to make sacrifices in what you can carry . Viking are good and so is Saddlemen but go for what you need within your budget
