Summary:

Awesome

Faults:

Leaking oil from gasket rear cylinder.

General Comments:

Super comfortable great tourer two up. Averaged 40-45 mpg.

Standard windscreen is too high, especially in wet weather.

Handled surprisingly well for its size, with great presence on the road.

Good at speeds up to 100 mph two up.

Brakes are ordinary, look at a newer one with ABS if this is an issue (it should be!).

Also would not buy any Harley without a good service history and preferably a warranty.

Ultimately I wish I had not sold it, but I needed the money at the time.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
