Yup, I like them. Pretty "no-nonsense" for a Harley, IMO.
I do not own one, though.

A Harley forum would really be nice here. Geez - even the scooter guys have one.

What an FXR? Is the same as the FLCHTCNXR?

This is the kinda of shit responses you would get if there was a Harley forum. It would be a full time job for a mod to weed the haters out.

Not mine, but a beautiful example. I still read and hear how the FXRS was the best handling big twin Harley ever made. And with Eric Buell on the engineering team at the time, makes sense...

Fcuk the haters. I had an '87 FXRS Lowrider, it was a great bike, wish I had kept it. I sold it because I had a '70 shovelhead chopper, a V-max and a KLR too, should have sold the stupid shovelhead instead.

I couldn't possibly care less about what haters have to say ...
Well awere of poor brakes, suspenssion and oil leaks, but still like Sporties, FXRs and some Dynas evry bit as much as my Airheads and a whole lot more than most UJMs out there.

With a little bit of tweeking FXRs make good sport touring rigs.

I had the first year FXR Superglide and rode the heck out of it all over the eastern US and the Maritime Provinces.
Of all the Harleys' I've owned that is the one I wish I'd kept. It was a very good motorcycle. 5 speed chain drive with EVO motor.

I like them. By the time I was ready to buy a new HD in the '90's, the FXR's were no longer being made. So I bought a Dyna. Good bike in general, but had I bought an FXR I'd probably still have it...

Kinda ironic.. I sold my Dyna after we finished building my Shovel chopper.
Life was never gonna be complete without doing that. I love the Shovel. I've never missed the Dyna.
