Test rode one of these and loved the light but steady handling. It also cornered much better than I'd been lead to believe. The keyless ignition and slick gear change were great too. Unfortunately it sounded like a paper bag fluttering in the wind. Liked the 'flame' paint job so much that I decided to take the gamble and buy one as my first 'big' Harley. Ordered it with a Stage 1 tune in the hope that this would give it more character..... This made it a different bike entirely. It now sounds absolutely glorious, and pulls like a train. On a sunny day, it is total therapy for the soul. Test rode a Fat Boy Special recently, which gets a great name, but it simply wasn't the same bike. If you want to find out what Harleys are all about, get one of these with the tune. Dont buy one without it. You cannot fail to love it. It is the essence of what Harleys are all about, and sheer joy to open up on the road.
