You really have to own a HD or Indian/Victory to comment on these bikes. I have owned HDs since 1990 and my wife and I still do. My first bike was a HONDA CB450 in 1972. Then a CB750 and CX650T which leaked more oil than a shovelhead. WE had FXR's on 1990 and a FL in 1993 so our son could ride with us. Always had a bagger and still do BUT I had a VTR1000(Motor self destructed in 20002007 Aprilia Tuono and a 2011 Concours as its like golf clubs-you need more than ONE. HD is an aquired taste but riding 5-600 miles a day is MUCH more relaxing on a FL! I have bought my last HD as I need a T120 NEXT!
