OEM I think is the best. The others seem to not always be too accurate and I've found them to sometimes take you the long way around to do things. I went to check the tail light in my Marquis last weekend and the Haynes does not even tell me how to do it. I think I have to pull the entire light out but it's weird so I went to the Haynes and nothing. I have the OEM for my Yamaha and it has everything in it. 400 pages worth.

p.s. I had a Haynes for my Vulcan too. It was decent for some stuff but, honestly, most of what I needed I found online anyway. But I did use it for some stuff.

OEM, period (as long as it's still available).

I agree... OEM. But with cars, it's all Helms. Those are basically OEM.

My HD manuals are intensly awesome.

Big Dog manual is a JOKE. Don't even list the oz required to refill the front forks!!

Went with the consensus and got an OEM... found lots of good stuff already in the couple days I've had it.
Some stuff lead me to ask questions I would not have thought of and I ended up finding better info online,,but only because I knew what to ask..
