    I have a company van, work 50+ hours a week so don't get to ride as much... but since 2004 this bike has been very reliable, problem free and now 35000 miles on the clock. not the best motorcycle in the world.
    but harley davidson is the most iconic motorcycle in the world.

    You seem thrilled that there's no SE parts on your hog as is the other imported parts are any better? From personal experiance you might wanna try some SE stuff as the quality its far better that...umm well... the other imported trinkets. No reason to have the dealer install anything unless your completely hopeless with tools.

    SE/ HD makes a good product- but there air filter takes in 450 less cfm than my CALIFORNIA MADE over flow air filter-----you know what they say more air/fuel=adrenilane . BUB rhinharts Imported, nope the power commander might be--- but HD race tuner, is a sort of Copy anyways..... HD SE/CVO makes a great complete MOTORCYCLE.
    not thrilled about non SE parts. but HD does not need the whole pie, there are those who have the stealership install/repair eveything:roflhopeless for them, and just go ahead and light a couple $$ on fire. they most likely wear all the T-shirts anyways:deal.

    I don't live to far from Payson and ride that way often, this was last week on the Oatman Highway Route 66 not killing anything just enjoying the ride. ABS is nice so is cruise control would have never said that three years ago but I'm sold now.

    Keep this thread going - I've had a hardon for a black FLHR since I had a manager in high school who would run between locations on his. No screen, big hard cases, decent chassis. They've always looked like the dictionary definition of motorcycle to me.


    What else is hiding out there?
