Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Sold my large Harley Touring bike. Wanted to go for a local cruiser. Loved the looks of the Boulevard, easy controls...

Biggest problem is the passenger foot pegs' location, and the very heavy handling for such a small bike. And the other thing I notice is a lot of vibration at higher speeds; not a smooth ride, even with new well balanced tires.

I found it to be a mistake to go from a luxury ride like the Harley Touring to this. It is like going from a Lincoln to a Model T.

But again, it seems to be a good bike for the money invested, but I am looking to sell and go back to a belt drive Harley or Victory.

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