I purchased this bike a few months ago from a fellow that had 3 Boulevards. The C90, the C90T and the M109R. He decided to keep his C90 because he liked the color better than the C90T. (which is Gunmetal) He did rob the saddlebags, passenger sissy bar and stock windscreen from the T, which I have since replaced with aftermarket parts. He priced the bike accordingly. ($6300)
After owning several Harley-Davidsons I had decided it was time to try a metric bike. I must admit I am very pleasantly surprised with the Boulevards comfort and handling. It is equal to or better than anything I have ridden in the past. I am averaging 51mpg on the hwy and 41mpg around town. The bike has a great deal of low end torque as advertised, and seems to really cruise soft and sweet between 65 and 75mph.
I have not experienced any front end wobble with this bike at any speed up to 90mph, which I have heard some mention in other reviews I have read. I suspect tire pressure may have been an issue in those cases. But who knows?
The bike has nice clean classic lines and has turned a few heads on the few trips I have taken so far. The Boulevard out handles the last bike I owned hands-down, in the twisting mountain roads of Washington State where I live.
As much as I like this bike there are a few things that I don't like. The bike in my opinion is too quiet. Granted, there is no substitute for the sexy, throaty rumble of a Harley. But the Boulevards' exhaust note is almost non existent. I won't be spending large amounts of money on new pipes to make it sound beefier. But will look for the right deal on something to experiment with.
I also don't like the small fuel capacity of the bike. Although I must admit, having the tank down low under the seat may be a big reason this bike handles so well.
The paint is inferior to Harley and Victorys' as well as the lack of "real" chrome. But remember, the bike even new is almost half the price!!
I will keep this bike as a second when I make my next purchase which will be the Triumph Rocket III. It will then be used mostly by friends who come out for a visit. I would have no qualms at all having my buddies ride this machine.
