Scary fast and very reliable


Had to replace the battery, brake pads and tires. And that is all. Other than some rust pits on chrome, but I live on the beach and I ride my Night Train. I don't spend too much time waxing it.

General Comments:

This bike is the fastest bike I have ever ridden. It handles wonderfully and it is very comfortable. It has proven to be the most reliable bike I have ever owned.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I owned a 2002 fuel injected. Not especially fast at all in my opinion. Immediate starts at all times and very reliable. The Black Line doesn't look as good in my opinion. These bikes sell quickly. I had a Black and my friend had a new Black Cherry. Very sharp understated bike that goes well with a late model Corvette to drive. Looks great sitting still. I sold mine in 2013 with 5000 miles on the odometer. I added a lot of Willy G accessories and replaced the factory exhaust.
