The angel on my shoulder is saying, the FJR is perfect, great brakes, ABS works, will run to 100k with no problems. The devil is saying buy the v twin rumble, ABS is hit or miss so what? Might be a maintenance hog, so what?

Will see what happens and who wins.....

Judging from your question, you have had great service out of yours and I hope for the same. Hard to keep in mind that most people are posting about problems to blow off steam or find solutions, not often people post [B][/B]" Hey had no problems this past year".

Regardless look forward to getting one.
If you have not seen anyone post "HEY, HAD NO PROBLEMS THIS PAST YEAR", then I will be the first!

I have been on this forum asking for help with my friends Sporty that we brought back to life after being in storage for 10+ years! I have been here asking for information on the things that i am unfamiliar with. Such as the Boombox (which i honestly dislike). (But, my bike came with it so..) I learned how to use it.

Maintenance hog: Well, OK, I Installed a new battery and did a 3 hole oil change. Oh, and adjusted the handlebars..

This bike has given me NO PROBLEMS

I question, Why would you start with slamming H.D. while shopping for one?
