WOW... well I spoke about it on FB...


Lots of people don't get the HDs but they do what they were designed to do and they do it well. Plus if there is anything you want it's out there and by 83 different companies. They are the most customizable bike around. I'm a bit of a fan boy but I also can point out real world reasons too.

The HD's don't drop much and if you're going used you're all set.

Pros: Holds value well, pretty solid bike. Easy to find lots of customizing & tweaking options.

Cons: Most of the people that don't ride Harley's rag on them, and typically you'll get double the animosity from Sport Bike riders.. not sure if it's jealousy, intimidation, or just plain ol' people being busy-body dumbfucks. Customizing parts tend to be on the pricy side (but that could just be my frugal-Scottsman blood talking).

As Gas pointed out they do what they're designed for. And they aren't designed for OMGWTFZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!! speed, so as long as you're not buying it for that, then you're all set. :D

Biggest pro for me is parts availability. The metric have been doing the planned obsolescence with their bikes since the 70s which is great if you buy new every few years. You can still get parts, but you have to wait and so many things are model and year specific. Harley has gotten that way since around 08 with its offerings as well, but the aftermarket is huge. Con- Street Glides are nice looking machines. However if you do a lot of traveling, consider going with a Classic because you can always take the tourpac off(thought I would take mine off but never have)
