Great little hot rod!
The seat is not designed for the long haul.
Don't leave foot under shifter when cornering, as you will drag your toes!
Saddle bags are too small, will barely hold a man's large leather jacket.
Gas mileage is much lower than factory specs! Averages about 27 on the highway, and lower in city driving.
Aluminum wheels pain to polish. Mothers makes them look chrome, but takes lots of work.
Fun bike. Too low to really corner well.
The seat is not good for long rides, but the two sets of foot pegs are necessary if doing over 500 miles a day. They let you shift weight and pressure points during a long ride.
I put on CFR pipes, Power Commander, high flow filter, saddle bags, LED signal lights and tail lights with Kuryakn strobe controller in brake lights with LED brake light. Great brakes!
Still have my FLHTC, makes a good team. Overall, it's a great bike; very fast, handles well and is very predictable.
Pipes and other modifications improved performance, especially acceleration, and love the sound. The short pipe improves its looks; making the bike look lower and longer. Great engine!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
