I sold my '98 Harley Dyna Convertible FXDS and am considering
a 2005-2006 Dyna Super Glide or Low Rider. Are they reliable
bikes? Thank you.

Once you get to a bike that age it's reliability is going to be based more on the previous owner than anything else.

Also, I'm with hd4ever. I'd get at least a year newer for the engine and transmission.

If you could go up one year newer.....an '07...you'd get the 96" engine and six speed.
You got the six speed and new cam tensioner design a year early on the Dynas - in 2006. That makes an '06 a better buy than the '05, IMO.

I got my '05 in March with 23k miles. I now have 34k and no issues whatsoever.

Had I known that when I bought my 06, I would have done that. But mine had 11,000 miles on it when I got it. Now it has almost 31,000 trouble free miles.

I had an 05 Super Glide. Not sure of the mileage when I sold it but it was very reliable. Never had an issue. However, now that I own an 07 Street Bob, you definitely want the 6 speed transmission. The 06 got the six speed. The 07 got the 96 inch motor and the 6 speed. I love the 96 inch motor, but you at least want the 6 speed trans. That rocks.
