Summary:

Happy so far, don't get Denim Paint!!

Faults:

Hi, I've only had my Street Glide a short time, my first ride ever on it was from Calgary AB to Kamloops BC on March 24th 2011. About 650 kms, and it ran great and was comfortable.

Since then I have had it to the dealer for service. Good service, except for scratched paint on fairing and one saddlebag latch, that I would swear wasn't on the bike when I took it in. The shop manager replaced the latch, but I still have a small mark on the fairing.

The paint is a Denim Black. I like the look, but if it's going to scratch this easily, HD needs to address this or stop using it.

General Comments:

I like the way it handles for a bagger, and feel the fit and finish (except for Denim Paint) is superior to my 2003 Mean Streak, which I owned from new and put 116,000 kms on.

It has the 96, and the power feels fine to me, though the bike already had an after market pipe, K&N air filter, and was remapped by HD, according to my dealer.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
