    Another likely unpopular bike purchase...


    Sold the Electra Glide at the end of 2016 and went a season without riding. Couldn't bear the thought of missing out on another year so this is coming home with me this coming Saturday. Opted for the sharknose fairing over the batwing this time around.

    Again, not a popular bike choice here but I still have a number of sportbikes at my disposal for when that itch needs to be scratched and the bagger really fits most needs for a daily ride.

    Nice!

    Took me a while to realize on mine that I could raise the floorboards up for less sparks when cornering (plus I put longer shocks on it for the same reason)

    I don't know the current lineup, so to me it doesn't look dated at all. And certainly doesn't look like a 13 year old motorcycle.

    Nice ride. All they really need is descent suspension. I have a Ducati in the garage next to my Road King and the king gets the nod usually. Easy relaxing comfortable. And a dose of Traxxion Dynamics helps.

    I am surprised no one has asked this yet. Does it take Rotella?

    I'm sure we could work something out. There's a very short list of people I trust riding my bikes and you've always been on it.

    Are those mini ape bars on there? Better have good blood pressure, my hands would go numb quick.

    Congrats. That blue is a great color and the nose is very cool. I can't ever see myself on a Harley, but that is a cool looking bike.

    They're 16" bars and as high as they look in pics, they're actually right about shoulder height when seated and surprisingly comfortable.

    Re: Another likely unpopular bike purchase...

    Stopped into a Harley dealer over the weekend and fell in love with a bike. Thank god I can't afford it right now or I would have spent a fortune on it. But 28k is a bit out of the budget right now.
