New Harley Softail models
« on: March 15, 2018, 11:03:42 AM »
Has anyone tried any of the New Harley Softail models?

I've seen 'em at the show.  Kicked tires and sat on them at the dealer.

Really tempted but not much info from actual buyers out there.

Nice looking.....but I just can't drink the Cool Aide to actually want to purchase

I'm o.k. with the cool aid, especially on a ground up redesign.  I'm not sure I can swallow the HD dealer service dept.
I went to the dealer outside Philly.  Felt like I was at an Infinity/Lexus dealer!  But I'd still need to find a local wrench.

Love the Deluxe but I'd add the bags and screen like the Heritage.

The blacked out Heritage is growing on me but still having second thoughts.
Only one front disc!  I lmow it's for looks and it does look good.  A hubcap!

I prefer the dash (on the tanks) of the Lowrider.  Two instruments and a tach.
I rarely look at the speedo and it frees up the space above the bars for GPS.

Somebody help me, I just requested a test drive.
