    • In stock form, its pretty damn zippy.
    • The horn is f*ing LOUD
    • The suspension on these bikes is light years ahead of earlier bikes. Coming from a '13 FLTRU, the ride is waaayyy better. The coil-over rear shocks are a huge improvement.


    So far I'm very happy with this bike.
    Not for a long while. It's pretty zippy as is, I just want to put a shit load of miles on it and have someone else pay for the repairs.

    Brandon told me after he rode one, that he didn't like the suspension. That it felt disconnected from the road and almost too cushy. He also disliked how non vibrating the motor was to the rider. He said it didn't shake enough and made it felt very "metric-y".

    All I can tell you is that I personally feel the new suspension is freakin awesome from my perstpective. No more bone jarring rattly bumps, very planted and assertive on the road. I'm way more comfortable on this bike, and it definitely moves.

    Will put some good slip-ons on it on Sunday in Sturgis, first thing I'm doing Sunday morning is rolling out early to Rapid City HD to check out Rinehart, V&H, etc.
