Title says it all, other than the picture looks real nice.
Yeah... the black is a great contrast to the chrome.Beauty bike Steve. For some reason I thought it was gong to be blue, but, the black is perfect.
I bet, cold fingers or not it was hard to point it home after such a short ride.
Once you have ridden it for a while I'd be interested in your take on the power and the six speed. For that matter anything about the bike you like or dislike. Till then ride on Brother.
Sounds pretty nice, I'd try Amzoil after breakin. It made a huge difference on my bike. It slips into neutral now alot easier. Never miss a gear and it just feels like it is working better.Yeah... the black is a great contrast to the chrome.
You know, I couldn't tell too much between the 88" and 95" cubes I had with Heritage over the years, but can tell there's something potent between the knees with this 110". Duh, I guess.
Really liked the SE six speed I dropped into the Heritage. Smooth, quiet, never missing a gear. Jury still out with this six speed cruise drive. Finding neutral a real challenge if not moving. Hoping this is just early break-in characteristics.
Will have other thoughts after a few more miles... the backrest, the stock exhaust, the low profile/rear suspension, the FI, the low windshield, the new security system, etc. and etc. Much of this never had on a H-D before.
PS. BTW, this new security system is high tech. Once I walk away from the bike more than eight feet or so, the bike is armed automatically. No one can start it even if the ignition lock is on. It can't be moved without warning alarms. Should have seen my surprise when I put it in the garage. Went elsewhere in the house, put the key away, returned to the garage to move it. Serious alarm alerts! meaning I can't even move the bike around without the key in my pocket! Have to read up in the manual on this. Surely there is someway to disable? though not sure I will.
Amazing Mike. Our lakes in the mountains here are frozen. I sometime keeps track of when a nearby five acre lake thaws in the spring. Sometimes gives me a sense for the coldness of the winter. May is typically when it is ice free. I found your place on a map once. How large is the lake you're nearby?On a side note Steve. As you know i live in Northern Ontario. the week before Xmas is usually cold and snow covered, with ice on or forming on most lakes.
Not this year. My bike is in the garage with the rear wheel off, but if it weren't I would have joined some of my local buddies for a spin.
I live on a point across from one town. I could here bikes running towards the other town at the end of the bay.
I went for coffee at about noon and found a dozen bikes, mostly HD's at the coffee shop. Real strange for this time of year.
VROCK... So far don't mind this stock note. Know I'm in the minority but the low and deep tone is OK with me for now, during this break-in time. And it does look very good. At 1,000 miles I'll have a decision to make.So Steve,
How does the Exhaust sound? Is it too Quiet? Man, What a Beautiful Bike!!!
Come on Spring time!!!
Ya Steve,VROCK... So far don't mind this stock note. Know I'm in the minority but the low and deep tone is OK with me for now, during this break-in time. And it does look very good. At 1,000 miles I'll have a decision to make.
So is your name still on a special bike to arrive soon?
BTW, two feet of snow today and it is still coming down! Soon as its over will plow the driveway then count on the solar intensity here to enable getting out in a few days!
