I found my Softail to be very nimble and easy to handle due to the low center of gravity. 750 lbs it was 200 lbs heavier than my 883 which I sold 33 years before buying this one.
Plus I'm a lot older, out of shape and well into my 60's yet I'm thrilled with how it handles.
Don't like duck walking it backwards uphill out of a parking spot, but I can still do it.
I'm just glad I don't have to kick start it anymore. (And I was poo pooing all of the pussy's with electric start a few days before I bought it).
Oh where would I beeeeee without my bat are ee
