I like the new color on the 14 phantom. Can't believe they still have a rear drum though.

I do not care if the Harley guys respect it, they only respect a more expensive, bigger, more chromed out, more skull heads bike then what they ride, and they are really just envious.

I don't like it, I do not like water cooled bikes, I do not like super low seat heights, I do not like overweight 500cc bikes with little suspension, I do not like bikes my wife can not go on the back of, or bikes that have no way to carry anything without buying baggage.

Exactly. It's a well spec-ed machine for anyone shopping in that segment. It will surely sell well just because it'll be a good bike for all those people who want a bike in this segment.

We have it pretty freaking good right now in the North American market.

My hardest problem right now is picking the right bike, not finding it.
It's nice to see that people with a short inseam have a choice with HD. It should step things up in the metric ranks now.

I like the look of these bikes. Maybe Mrs. B could finally find something she liked better than her ancient 450 Rebel.

How much?

Please loose those for gaiters too. Those weren't cool in the 70's either.

I do not like people who don't know the difference between then and than.

I like it. And I'm not a girl OR a new rider. Just turned 60 Nov. 1st, and got my first motorcycle at 8. I don't ride two up any more. I worked at an HD/Buell dealer the last 5 years before I retired. I don't buy any of that Sportster being a girl's bike, or a beginner's bike BS. I've owned some real fun 500 cc motorcycles and lots of bigger and smaller ones. I've owned 2 Sportsters, which I believe is the best Harley-Davidson.

All right. Let's see some reviews of these.

This is a great move for H-D. I hope they sell boat loads of them.

Yea, that's where they should be..
Does the mother ship dictate product placement on the floor..or is up to the dealership?
