Alex. Welcome.

I rode a HD like the one in the photo a few weeks ago. What a ride! It was like a car or a couch on two wheels running about two thousand revs at 70 mph.Hello,

Sure is, but also can be ridden like a sport bike. Of course the bike is big and heavy, but still flickable. I'm a sport oriented rider and like to scribe my foot pegs)) Quite few performance mods since new, but 2-way Ohlins on the back really made a huge difference. Next step is Ohlins on the front bigger brembo's calipers/rotors and I'm a happy camper. You don't see suspension mod's on HD's too often.

Sorry Alex didn't mean to still your thread

I'm with you Rob. I have a Raider and it's an incredible cruiser. Handles very well in the curves for what it is. When I'm in the mood for a mellow, laid back ride, it's the Raider. It's also very fast in a straight line and leaves pretty much every other cruiser in the dust so there's excitement when I want it. Having both gives me options and I like options.
