I think I can. It handles better than the Fat boy. I don't want to ride it like a bagger. I want to ride it like cruiser. This is just one of the many things that make the Road King such a wonderful bike.

Ahhh. "I think". You lose. Just because you "think" doesn't mean that you can. They are two different bikes with two different suspensions.
Now go to your corner.

I rode it today. I did enough to make me pretty confident that I can. Now, didn't you say you were done responding to my posts because you think I am baiting someone?

I'm curious - what's the difference between riding it "like a touring bike" and riding it "like a cruiser"?

I own a 18 Road King and traded a 18 Fat Boy 114 in on it. I love the way both of them handle A little more room on the RK and a little taller in the seat. But I loved my FB alot too. I'm 72 and been riding for 55 yrs. Owded at least 25 Harleys.
