2009 Harley-Davidson FLHRCI Road King Classic
Rolls Royce of bikes
Nothing has gone wrong as yet.
Handling is excellent.
Acceleration is not bad for a 360 Kg plus bike.
The aftermarket seat and backrest makes the boss (pillion) a lot happier than the original.
Finish is of a high standard.
It looks the part.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I bought a new 09 RoadKing Classic.
From the very first ride I had a problem with bottoming out and hitting hard. Could find no sweet spot as far as air pressure goes. Harley Rep tells me I am the only one.
I put a set of 440 progressives, improved. However, it definitely did not solve the problem. They cost $900.00 and change.
One would assume that the rear suspension is supposed to come standard. The rear suspension on the 2009 RoadKing classic is crap. I certainly expected more.
They have a long ways to go to have the same ride a Yamaha.

That's exactly why I ride a Yamaha!

That's why it's a Harley, and not a Japanese washing machine!
