Hi guys, I'm in the market for a Dyna wide glide. How reliable are they? I live in FL. So I can ride year round? Your honest feedback would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Same engine as what is on the cruisers. Follow the maintenance schedule and you will be fine.

Welcome 19Dscott .
You have chosen the top of the heap of Dyna's because the W/G is by far the most popular Dyna and one that you will be glad you bought . Don't let the nay sayers sway you when they chime in about how the Wide Glide doesn't handle as well as some other Dyna's because it simply isn't true . Just replace that skinny little 80/90/21" front tire with a 90/90/21 along with a steering damper & maybe a fork brace . Some RICO front fork dampers with 15wt Amsoil fork fluid and a set of Progressive shocks . Then you can handle with the best of them along with having a very comfortable ride .

Welcome from the backwoods. A friend has a bone stock wide glide that runs good looks good and handles good. I would recommend any Dyna without reservation.

A wide glide is just as dependable as any other Harley with a 88"or 96". It will have the same engine. Only difference is the frame and accessories.

I bought the 2012 WG in January of 2012. Got the extended warranty. Still love it and would buy it again. I haven't had any problems cornering with the smaller front tire or issues with handling.
