No experience with these, so can't offer constructive comments.

But a nice looking bike. Also heard good things about the new M8 engine.

At a quick glance the lines look a little like the Triumph Bobber Black.

Cheerio,

Roy

My favorite HD from current models is the Fat Bob. It was well received by the MC motoring press and felt comfortable when I sat on one. If I didn't have a HD already this one would be my choice.

I was at a Harley Shop recently and saw a Glide in Red Denim.... I'm all about that color.

I've spent my fortune on wine, women, and motorcycles. The rest I wasted on everything else.

It is IMO the most "fun" HD, I own 2 HDs in addition to my Triumph Bobber. The 107 M8 motor is also a better choice for a cruiser/bobber as it keeps the torque curve down low. I rode a Breakout with both motors and preferred the 107.

Came across this Street Bob outside the gym the other day. I think the new range of 'Soft-tails' are great, Harley have certainly upped their game in terms of fit and finish, but then again they needed too!!!

Actually IMO HD set the bar in fit and finish as well as materials. Unlike many motorcycles they use metal and quality parts. Of course I also think Triumph is now also a state of the art manufacturer in fit and finish.

For me; what kills me is the rear fender on most HDs like this one. I get that it needs suspension travel but man itís blah looking. Yes; I also lower my cars to get rid of fender gap and increase handling performance.
