Question What is it that you like about the model HD you have?

Not trying to start some kind of flame war about why X model is better than X model. I'm ready to trade in my sporty for something else, and I'm just genuinely interested in why everyone likes the model Harleys they ride. So what are some things about your ride that you love?

07 Road King Classic, I love the electronic cruse control and a touring bike with the hart and soul of a Dyna.

2016 FLHTP aka Cop-glide. I like the utilitarian design, the seating, & great handling of the police models. I had an '09 RK police before this. I had always wanted an American Sport-touring bike, with the Rushmore fairing and a Givi 46L trunk this bike checks all the boxes.

I love my 2015 Ultra limited. It has tons of torque, plenty of room for just about anything you want to take with you. It handles awesome and is extremely comfortable for extended trips. What's not to like??

2015 Breakout
Not much to mod on it, besides the basic pipes, air cleaner upgrade.
Not a lot to chrome.

The only thing I'd do is get narrower bars. They're about 8-10" too wide.

It seems to me people are drawn to the bike that they ultimately love and can't part with.

I ride a 2008 Softail Rocker. It is the 14th street bike I've owned and I don't think I will ever part with it.

What I love about it:

1. Looks. I get compliments on this bike everywhere I go.
2. Style. I like the big back tire and long rake. I love the color, although I'm not a fan of the flames. I like the solo setup.
3. Engine. Its had stage kits done to it but I love how fast it is and the torque.
4. Engineering. Surprisingly, this bike is a blast through the canyons. It thrills me every time I get on it.
5. Comfort. I can ride all day and feel great.

What I don't like:

1. Above 90 I feel like I will get blown off the seat. I don't like windshields so I live with it.
2. Lack of storage.

Me too! Some bike should NEVER have car parts aka windshields. Being in the wind is what bike riding is about.

Ive got a Limted,Heritage and a TriGlide. I like em all the same...just depends on what kind of mood Im in that day. Some days Ive had all 3 of em out. Go for a ride on one and come home and swap out and go again.
