    bought my 2018 fat boy 2 weeks ago and haven't taken it home yet. its a 114 and doing the stage 3 to make it a 117! It has monster torque. Adding a bunch of accessories as well. Picking it up Saturday...

    Enjoyed the review. I do like the fat boy and actually love the styling of this bike but don't think I could deal with that big back tire.

    Nice vid. Are you only reviewing new 2018s? I'd love to see comparisons to older models, like comparing this to the previous gen Fatboy. .

    I love the look of a big fat back tire but I don't like the feel of a big fat back tire for reasons you already commented on. Next😎

    I’m a 5ft 7in female & I can comfortably flat foot this bike. I purchased the 114. I love it. I did put the short windshield on it, because I do love longer rides. I feel somewhat cramped, so I had an crash bars & highway pegs installed.
