Road King is the best Harley IMO, especially at your height. I got a consistent 39MPG on my 2012 but I have mental condition that keeps opening the throttle up.
oh ya for sure, would ideally get in the 96 cu in motor but will take an 88 if the deal is right, who knows, a year from now my budget could grow a bit, buying my first house this fall so by next year i might not be so tight with my money haha.I've got the 103 cu in, 5 speed tranny. At 65 mph, it will go all day at 42 mpg. 75 mph close to 40 mpg, depending on road conditions. It was dyno tuned, has a P C V, modified exhaust. My point is, even with a bigger engine you can hit what your looking for.
What's a "Goldwing"?The first few times I have checked on my 14 Ultra Limited I'm seeing 42.. Much more then I was getting on my Goldwings. I would only see 30 to 35..
Its that point and time where the beautiful chicken wing turns golden brown letting you know it is done in the frier... # knowWhat's a "Goldwing"?
Alright everyone, been riding my sporty for a few years now which has been an absolutely great bike as a solo rider, but i now have a great girl to take along with me on rides and while i'm not the tallest guy out there at 6'2", it still gets a bit scrunched with an extra rider on the back.
That being said, I'm going to be looking at upgrading in the spring to a road king! My budget is potentially looking like it'll be around 9k at that point which puts me up to a fairly low mileage '05 in the bikes around my area. My big question is what kind of mpg all of you guys are seeing on average? both in the 88ci and 96ci engine sizes if you could! although i know mpg is isn't everything for everybody but I'd like to see 40+ mpg out of the bike. if that's not realistic that's alright, just trying to get an idea of what's realistic, I'm also considering a dyna wide glide which i'm sure is capable of getting that.
