I already don't like the way t-bars look.

On that bike, they are so hideous it made me nauseated, hence deciding not to quote the picture.

I went look at FXDR at the dealer some more last week. I still believe there is a really cool looking bike in there waiting to be released.

A big turn off though was the preponderance of plastic. The whole rear fender section feels like Rubbermaid plastic.

Again, I feel like Harley is repeating the AMF era. That is not a good thing.

That German modified FXDR is cool looking.

I think one of the things that intrigues me is in some ways it reminds me of the FXR. I think if someone would restyle it to emphasize that look it would be kind of cool.

At any rate, it's an interesting bike and it begs for modification.

All that plastic though.....and strange flat areas and sharp angles / edges of the tank, seems very strange

There was this one time when ***** G decided a boat tail would look good on bike.....

The first time I saw the bike in the dealers, I loved it except for the rear plastic fender and turn signals. Looked like they forgot them during the design phase, and had to add them later. Its sure a different looking bike with the rear end cleaned up. I'd get one

The rear is a blank canvas with a lot of possibilities.

AGREED

Looks badass and felt pretty comfortable when I sat on it. Was supposed to test ride 1 during a HD demo day but it got rained out.

It looks cool until you get to the forward controls. They destroy the lines and concept of the bike. IMO.
