HD made a great bike, but could have done better with the initial Twin Cam problems
Bike was a first year Twin Cam 88 model and had the defective camshaft bearings. I bought the bike on eBay for $9,500 and immediately had Harley of Pensacola replace the camshaft, bearings, and upgrade to the Stage 3A kit with the 95ci TC with the SE204 cam. The bike has run flawlessly ever since and I have done all other services... change the plugs,fluids, and oil filter.
This Harley is the FXDX, Super Glide Sport, and having previously owned both a '97 ZX-11D Ninja and '88 CBR 1000F Hurricane, I can vouch for what a great job Harley did on putting a V-Twin in a sport bike frame.
Overall handling on any roads is more than acceptable for my 52 year old 5'10" 220lb frame. I added the Mustang Seat because the stock seat is very uncomfortable.
Fuel economy is 44mpg average and I am reluctant to go the Stage 3B kit because the bike runs out very well. No leaks anywhere. Fires right up, warms up fast, and runs smooth at all RPMs. The bike is not geared for more than about 70-80mph non-stop cruising.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
