    Finally, i got to take the Fat bob out! In a nutshell, i loved it. Still think i'd end up customising it quite a fair bit. Great platform for HD. Please note that I had to deal with the following conditions on the test route which made the review less white knuckle interns of pushing the bike more.
    1) British horrible wet weather
    2) Wet roads
    3) New bike (13 miles on the clock)

    Crazy you drove on the wrong side of the road that long and didn't get pulled over.

    Really like your review. From LA but lived in Amsterdam for last two years. Rain Rain rain and more rain. Rode BMW's there. Back home in Los Angeles a year since Ive been back from NL. No bike. So just purchased the 2019 Sportster 883 Iron. Kept that two weeks. Then traded up for the Fat Bob. Wow what a bike. Test rode all the ones I liked but this 2019 FB 114 rides so nice. reminds me of my sports bikes. Very comfortable seat, suspension wonderful on the back. forward controls are comfortable but would adjust right brake lever a bit more back toward me. Bumps are so nice now. Adjustable ease. I flipped my mirrors so I can see 100% better. Few things I want to change is exhaust stage one ? For sound it would be nice if it were just a tad louder. Can be expensive -tuner- full pipes or just slip ons. Don't like how high the pipes are and long same as you said. Sissy with rear rack one piece aftermarket would be nice for travel backpack. Not going to put bags on this bike like it naked. I do have small HD tool bag for front of bike above headlight for small items. I'm in break in mode so yes easy on the tires brakes and engine.

    There's something jarring about seeing a Harley Davidson in England.

    Can a big guy like 6 ft 220 lbs look normal riding this or is this bike small?

    Can this bike be modified to mid-control? It seems like a good handling bike that I’d like to track for fun and be able to move around on.

      Thats not really the takeaway i got from this video. Sounds like this bike is strong but can be made stronger.

    Rode a 2018 fat bob with a stage 4 117 kit on it. The power was ok, but the ergonomics ruined it for me. I absolutely hated it. I'm 6 feet tall and I felt so cramped. Just my experience though, give one a try if you can

    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

    Would buy one tomorrow if the Thai government would drop their crazy 200% import tax making this bike three times more expensive here than anywhere in the world shame really as I love the bike too.

      John Ambler I lived in TL for 2 years n think this bike would be cool in TL. I joy st got the 114 and have 1600 miles on it now.
      Here’s the problem for TL... it’s a heavy bike 675lbs. On sandy roads aka concreate roads with sand if she slipped it could be a serious problem.
      I lived in Samui n Phuket for 18 Months n 6 in Bkk.
      Ide bring my bike there but if I had to buy a bike ide go way lighter but then again who cares what I say 🤗 get what you want n have fun!
      Fun is fun!
      Take care mate n stay save farang.

    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.

    I purchased mine last December and my only serious issue is the amount of water it throws on me from the rear tire. I took it to a bike show and took 2nd and its still stock. Younger crowd loved it.

    i Want to see one of these bikes equipped with the lowering kit. Or someone put airbags on it and make a bloody video already. And more stage 3 and 4 kits!! is that asking too much? lol

    Small awkward tank, weird peg position, a cheap Chinese looking led headlight, sounds like a weed wacker and looks like a Japanese vmax. Yep...I’ll pass and buy a used Dyna.

    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.
