    Bought my second new HD ever yesterday, and they appear to have come a long way. Reviews will follow as soon as I figure out the touch screen and voice commands...

    That's a nice looking bike. Touchscreen and voice on a Harley? What is this world coming to?

    Pampered convenience. Since they haven't projectile leaked oil in decades, we've got to mind something... HH

    This was before the weekend of end-of-days Armageddon snow near the dealer in Belgrade, Montana. Two of the only three routes home were closed the next day so we packed the truck with toilet paper and beer. HH New bike Bozeman.jpg

    Au contraire. You can hear mosquitoes mate over this thing at red line. That, and they put the catalytic converters right where you place your right ankle...Red Addair couldn't come up with a boot that would prevent you from being branded. HH

    You're going to save a ton on chrome polish.

    The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.

    Nice ride!

    I bought a new Heritage Classic 114 softail a couple months ago, totally impressed with what Harley has done. Torque by the ton is instantaneous, handles tight, rides much better than any previous softail (or my Electra Glide, for that matter) with its adjustable monoshock and cartridge fork, but it did need assistance from Vance & Hines to sound like a motorcycle. I still dote on my two older softails ('01 and '09) but the new machine is worlds ahead. It's barely a Harley. I was really tempted by the Street Glide but in the end went for the lighter (only 720 lb.) bike because I'm not getting any younger.

    Is that an oil cooler radiator or a water radiator up front?
