I have a V-Rod, the one thats engine was developed by Porsche & the first Harley with overhead cams, fuel injection & liquid cooling…
old school Harley riders say its not a real Harley because it’s too far removed from the traditional ones being too much like a Jap bike…
Jap bike owners don’t like it because its a Harley lol
i am thinking sportster, not because its the cheapest cos i will be able to buy any1 i like but cos i prefer it anyway obviusly a 1200, i do like the dyna’s but i haver paid over 2g for a bike so still cant find myself handing over that sort of wonga for 1, lol.
dont some of the harley lot turn their nose up at the sportsters too? maybe the sportster and v-rod lot should join forces,
I’ve never owned one, but I’ve ridden a few (sportster and fatboy) and loved them!
I’ve always said that I would eventually buy a harley, just to go cruising around the country etc… However, that country would have to be america or Canada if I end up moving over that way eventually. Harley’s are not built for this country, espcially during winter. Avoid the Harley’s that are full of chrome or you’ll be cleaning them forever!
Another final thing I noticed on some of the newer models is that the build quality is not up to the price tag! The fuel cap n the new fatboy is unbelievably bad quality! It doesn’t even sit properly within the fuel tank!
By all means, chase the dream! Just make sure you thoroughly inspect before you buy!
