My 4th Wide Glide, and I love it. Wide Glides just simply handle and ride well


At about 13100 miles, the bank angle sensor went out. Starting on the '01's, they integrated this with the turn signal auto shut off. The bike thought it was on its side and wouldn't start. With the integration, it was pretty hard to find/figure out.

General Comments:

I have the full Screamin' Eagle package on this bike, and it runs like a dream. It is still carbed, so once in a while I get a skip or back fire, but seldom. It rides like a dream, and other than when the BAS went out, it has not failed me.

Pretty darn comfortable, even on the 500 mile trek to Sturgis.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
