Harley's Cross Bones is the perfect antidote to a tough week at work. It’s so comfortable, thanks to its wide, beautifully padded, hand-stitched sprung seat and rubber-topped footboards that you could almost fall asleep on it; something the whisper-quiet exhausts would unfortunately let you do, if you weren’t careful.
It looks the part and the ‘Springer’ front end adds to the coolness of this Harley-Davidson. It doesn’t have as much grunt as you’d expect from such a big (1584cc) motor, but it’s happy just to plod along all day in the sunshine at 50mph; it’s ideal cruising speed with an open-faced helmet. You can’t help but smile when you ride the Harley-Davidson Softail Cross Bones and it makes you feel special.
All this loveliness comes at a price, though and costing close to thirteen grand, it’s certainly not cheap, especially when you consider it’s a single-seater. Try selling that to your missus.
