    You were probably out of sight before the motorcycle registered on their consciousness.

    I haven’t seen one in person but looking at the picture I can see how it’s growing on you . I love it and with those more off-road tires, the bike really looks great and has a more ‘bring it on’ attitude ! Overall I think Harley did a great job on color choices for the Pan Am .

    Yesterday, I received the Screaming Eagle Extreme Flow Air Filter I ordered for my PAS. Parts are still very hard to come by, so I'm happy this came through. My local dealer, where I purchased the bike, says they have nothing.

    I would speculate the exhaust and filter are CARB approved. Can't see HD having two sets of parts for CA and the rest of the world.

    It says on their website it is not CARB approved and are not for sale/use in California. That means, you need to keep it stock or, figure out how to buy it out of state on install everything yourself.

    The stock PA sounds like an angry Singer Sewing Machine.

    Thank goodness! So tired of Harley being a slave to their sound. Finally an engine they can actually be proud of.

    How does the old saying go: "The less you have to say the louder you have to say it".

    I don't like BIG sounds like on the normal Harley's, but the Pan America could use a little bass in its voice. I will say this, I love how a BMW GS 1250 sounds when you first fire it up. Very confident & satisfying. The Pan America sounds closer to my Vespa Primavera when you first start it.

    This looks like just some very short light mud riding, but you can see, it packs right in there. Going to guess Harley's wind tunnel testing wasn't with mud packed all over the front. That short fender and R/R placement is a stupid design. It needed much more fender coverage.

    Also, The standard GS has a larger fender and doesn't have radiators or R/R so foolishly located. The radiators are high and to the side. Mud like this hits the breast plate.

    Maybe it's my age....or the ear protection I wear...I don't know....but I cannot hear the horn if I press the horn button while riding. I can hear that it is working if I press the button with the engine off, but the horn on my bike is very weak.
