Previous motorcycleHonda Gold Wing 1800 Trike

Summary:

A life changing experience

Faults:

Harley Davidson Tri Glide Trike 2011: Pulls to the right.

After repeatedly being placed in the shop for this problem, it still pulls to the right.

Was advised that all Harley trikes pull to the right.

General Comments:

As the rider, the Harley is a rush to ride!

It responds quickly for a trike and handles like no other.

The Harley gives me the feeling of riding a motorcycle again, where the Honda just felt like a trike, large and cumbersome.

My HD trike is Merlot in color, which is awesome, and I receive compliments daily.

Passenger seat is much smaller than our previous Honda, and comfort is much less for the passenger.

The ride is a much rougher ride than the Honda.
