    Question ?? Just looked at your review on the Indian scout and just looked at this review on the harley !I'm in the market for a bike ?
    these 2 have now caught my eye ,
    which one of these is the best in your opinion??
    The bike is only going to be used for work and home , freeway riding is involved at 110 kph then city riding at 40 to 60 kph
    See my drama ????
    Have a honda cb 500 now that's doing the work
    What do u think ????

    Who in God's name is an expert on anything? So I don't care what your review is the bike sucks because it's naked there's no protection at 200 miles an hour with such a big bore bike

    What idiot at Harley Davidson allowed this bike to go into production with an 3.5 gallon fuel tank? Short term memory fail on the production of the immensely capable and fun XR1200 that could be in a second or third gen by now if it had reasonable fuel capacity... HD is off its meds and stocks sliding to single digits.

    In 2017/2018 I just want to know how long Harley Davidson is going to get away with a chain primary drive system? A new motor, new technology, better cooling and they are not using or designed a gear drive primary.
    Harley-Davidson can keep the traditional primary cover for appearances but go with a smoother and lower maintenance gear drive primary.

    I've been thinking about this long and hard (since the beginning of my beer) and I have a solution to your issue with it always raining when you want to review a new bike. First, you'll need to recruit a few friends. The more the better. Second, get everyone into the North Sea. Third, push the U.K. further toward the center of the Atlantic Ocean. That's it. You're welcome.

    It’s a Great bike. I Love mine. I’ve been lucky to have owned quite a few Harley’s over the years, loved them all and still do. But this one does it for me I love it soooo much. Well done Harley this is the all in one Harley Davidson, Fun, Fast, Looks Ace, Handles Great, So comfy it’s got it all. It’s my every day Harley. Some people don’t like the change but what I say is You love your choice of Harley and I love mine This One. Each to there own. Ride One. My last bike was a Low rider S which was great but I Love this more.

    Beautiful bike meant to perform. Almost bought one several months ago. The 3.6 gallon gas tank killed the deal. A regular ride of 220 miles or more is done often. In the far west mountains and deserts a range of 140 miles or so is unacceptable and may find me out of gas and no stations anywhere around. Maybe next years Fat Bob's will have a 5 gallon tank and allow this bike to actually do what it should was built for; long comfortable riding on a performance machine. Not looking for gas or just riding to grandma's or the Harley dealership!

      Decided to buy the new 114 after taking a few Harley bikes out 4 a test 2 months ago. Left the FatBob 114 till last. As soon as I took it out I knew it was the bike I’d buy. Put a huge grin on my face. By the way loved your post on this bike which I viewed after deciding to buy the bike. Top video.

    I want one in the matte red, but I also want a Ducati monster and I already have an iron which is pretty basic has in my mind some of the best lines of any HD. It's also my first motorcycle so little bit sentimental.
    You are spot on about the headlight. It gives one an idea of traveling when lanterns were used.

    Excellent review...
    What are pros & cons of Fat Bob vs Breakout?

    This will be my very first road bike. I've rode mx bikes, but never a road bike before.
    I love the simplistic & minimalist look of this bike.
    Is this a good choice for first road bike?
    I fell in love with this bike when I walked into the HD showroom and saw 2018 Breakout Black ( it was first bike closest to the door ).
    I was intimidated at first.
    It seemed so big & too heavy compared to MX bikes. But after sitting on it for awhile, off & on for ~ 2 to 3 hrs, ( I was in showroom for 6hrs straight hrs 1st day & visited HD couple more days where I sat on it some more & felt more comfortable with weight ).
    Although they allow test drives I don't have a motorcycle license. They mentioned there's school I can go to on weekends to get on bike training & also pass written test and get license / certified.
    Majority of my rides will be less than 125 miles.
    However, I could see myself occasionally wanting to go 200 and rarely 300 or 400 miles one way?
    Sales people tried to convince me to buy 2018 CVO Road Glide because they said eventually it'd be a lot better because of all the additional features; however, although I could purchase the CVO, I like the simplistic & minimalist look of this bike...
    If necessary as I become better & more familiar with road bikes / breakout, I could purchase CVO Road Glide later, in addition to the breakout, if I really get into long distance riding.
    Is this bike ok for riding twisting roads in mountains?
    Would wind resistance against my body be an issue at 65 to 70 mph?
    Any thoughts & suggestions would be appreciated.
    I plan to get black version.
    There's 107, 114 & 117, which engine should beginner start with?
    I saw somewhere that tank on this is smaller 3.5g vs 5g. Again I love streamline look of this bike; however, some mentioned range is much more limited between refueling, 164 to empty ( 47 * 3.5 ) but should refuel at 1/4 before empty ~123 miles.
    Is that a problem?
    Some said it would / could be in group ride where other riders have 5g tanks and could go ~50 more additional miles before refueling.
    Thanks in advance for sharing..."

    I hadn't rode a bike in years, I seen the new Fat Bob and loved the look. I went straight to my local Harley dealer and jumped on one for a test ride. Yeehaa! Looks like I'm getting back into riding next year! Harley must have done something right because they pulled me back into the market after having been absent for years. I think they are going to be successful with bringing in new riders to their brand. Smart.

      I'm thinking of getting one, but I will definitely be keeping my XSR for my speed fix. That being said, it does get a move on and feels a lot faster due to the shear mass of the thing. This is the first Harley I've ridden and I have to admit they do have something about them...It just felt a bit more of a special event compared to say the Speedmaster - Which is probably a better bike in every way except the riding position and how it made me feel, go figure. Get a test ride, see if you were as surprised as I was.

    Well...i ride a 2014 FXDF and it will have to last for muuuch longer.
    Went to our local HD Dealer on "the day" and was quite shocked. Darling,
    THEY have shrunk the bikes ! Shortened the whellbase ! The all new Softail
    "Fat Bob" optically has become some kind of a rice-cooker , the seating position
    doesn't fit for a 6ft + rider any more. I sit higher on the bike and the tank just disappears between my legs. On my "Old" FXDF my legs and knees are left and right of the tank,
    at about half it's hight, the NEW Fat Bob is a DWARF. .... . I won't comment it's looks because other riders may be of different opinion. I don't like the new "japanese" look at all.
    Technically the Milwaukee Eight is just marginally tougher than my
    Twincam 103, the leaning angle is identical, no chance to fit saddle-bags, the tank even grew SMALLER ! I'd NEVER buy a bike that forces me to the gas-station every 110 miles !!!
    Silly enough VICTORY decided to cease production of their great bikes
    more or less same time when HARLEY decided to dump the fun-tastic DYNA's
    and try to modernise their bikes to fight the VICTORY's .... Silly
    in My Opinion Harley committed suicide if you don't want a HD Tourer.
    I love my DYNA FXDF - because of her size, her agility
    and her CHARACTER ! That Motorcycle is LIVING ! The NEW Softail "Dyna's" are so wonderful smooth but...without any character. May be even good motorcycles they are no
    HARLEYS any more . .
