A great bike that anyone can enjoy

Faults:

None.

Lots of power.

Turns in one lane; amazing for a full dresser.

Sounds like a Harley.

The stereo is loud and obnoxious, and it's as comfortable as hell.

Faults:

My bike has been GREAT TO ME.

I like the way the bike handles, the way it accelerates and the way it runs.

I don't think I could get a different bike. I have had no problems with my bike. So far it has been the best bike that I have had.

Summary:

It's GREAT as Tony the Tiger would say

Faults:

Horn went bad. Under warranty, quick fix, no sweat. The part was ordered with next day delivery. Fixed in less than an hour.

General Comments:

I've own three Harley's; a Road King, an Ultra Glide and now the Ultra Electra Glide CVO, which I think the best bike Harley makes as a touring bike.

I've taken couple long distance rides over 5 thousand miles this summer alone. I really had a great ride.

The 110 engine is so powerful, I was a bit taken back when I first rode it.

This is an expensive bike listed for 39k. Of course I didn't pay that. Harley did some great customer service, sending me a lots of great stuff; paid for HOG for the first year. Even an invite for the big party in Milwaukee.

The CVO version is a great thing.

The only thing I added to the bike was a cup holder.

Great to see your enthusiasm. Sorry we didn't see you or cruise with you at the Summerfest/110 year party.

Too hot. Fixed it or helped to cool off by using new headers.

General Comments:

Really a safe one. Had I know about the 2014, I would have waited. No dealer will trade with me now.
