2007 Harley-Davidson FLHTCU Ultra Classic Electra Glide from United States of America

Summary:

Will buy another Kawasaki next time

Faults:

Started out great, BUT after riding it about two months it started skipping. I had bought the extended warranty so I took it back to the dealership where I bought it (where it was checked out and was road ready); well the skip was a broken injector wire, the rear tire needed to be replaced, and the drive belt had to be replaced. Well that being said, $2300.00 bucks later it ran great until I started having charging issues (not charging) after the warranty ran out.

I have not ridden this bike in almost a year because I do not trust it anymore. Wish I still had my Kawasaki.

2015 Harley-Davidson FLHTCU Ultra Classic Electra Glide from United States of America

Summary:

Super comfortable ride for long rides

Faults:

Nothing, just normal maintenance.

General Comments:

I love this motorcycle, my girl and I ride every chance we can. Great ride, extremely comfortable, very low jolting. Has air ride. We try to see how far we can travel in one day; at our age, that is a big thing... we have made it 10 hours straight.

2013 Harley-Davidson FLHTCU Ultra Classic Electra Glide from United States of America

Summary:

Love it, could use a better seat

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Stock seat is uncomfortable, added a Harley Sundowner, better but not great. Added Vance & Hines header, SE pipes, SE breather kit, Stage one upload. Roll-on is okay. Have made several 2000 mile 4 day trips with no issues.

Stock handgrips are too small, added larger diameter grips. Lots of room in the bags & trunk. Radio/ CD sounds good. Air temp gauge is a joke - I know the temp before I get on the bike and know if it's hot or cold out; should be an oil temp gauge instead.

Love the bike overall, and it's my sixth Harley.

2013 Harley-Davidson FLHTCU Ultra Classic Electra Glide from United States of America

Summary:

This MC fullfills and exceeds all my requirements for touring North America!

Faults:

Not a thing!

General Comments:

This bike is the most comfortable HD on the market.

Touring in sixth gear still provides over 40 MPG.

A little heavy, so don't let it get away from you.

It is actually quiet and all stock with more power than I will ever need.

I love the dual disc anti-lock brakes.

2015 Harley-Davidson FLHTCU Ultra Classic Electra Glide from United States of America

Summary:

Very expensive to own and expensive to service. BEWARE

Faults:

2 recalls. Baggage rack and clutch assembly (all repaired, no expense out of pocket).

It's very expensive to take the motorcycle to the dealer to get the regular maintenance on it! The dealerships squeeze you like a sponge to get every dime from you. Now I realize why it's best to bring it to an authorized Harley mechanic for half the price rather than to the dealership. You're asked what's wrong, I am telling you, and you're raped buying the warranty and it does not cover general maintenance, and when you get the bill, be prepared for the shock of your life. Wake up Harley and treat your new customers like they bought a piece of real estate from you, rather than a boat!!!

General Comments:

The color black gets dirty very fast.

The handling is comfortable.

When purchased it I thought that it had a CD player and GPS system; it did not!

For the price that I paid for this motorcycle, I would have thought that I purchased the Cadillac of bikes.

The visual display is very difficult to read in the sunlight when riding.

Would I get another one? Definitely not. The cost does not outweigh the service options. The extended warranty when purchased does not cover regular maintenance with the $50.00 deductible; it's only in a major breakdown of components. My last bill on a 1000 mile service was $485.00; too excessive for a new motorcycle. My next service at 5000 miles will even be more expensive; that's unheard of. My Big Dog chopper that I have owned for 10 years, the most I had spent on it when servicing it was $285.00 dollars!

It's like a boat; when you use it, it's expensive, and when you rack up mileage on it, more expensive when purchased at $28000.00. I thought that I was covered for life; you're not.

Warranty doesn't cover service???? Black gets dirty easily? No kidding, you don't say?

I have owned motorcycles. Can't change your own oil? Anybody with even a bit of intelligence can do it. I still can't figure out why you're upset. Perhaps a Goldwing would be a better fit for you.

You say Goldwing like it's a bad thing! The new 2018 Wing will rule the touring bike industry for ten years. It's only 30 grand.
