Just go back with oem parts. They're good quality and can be assured of the fit.

Each one and every one comes with the genuine Willie G Davidson's "personally worn by him" Beret.

I think because so many people are willing to pay the money

A Harley story from the summer in N Ga. A group of us, 5, were traveling along one of our favorite sections of Hwy 60 and we came upon a Harley. He was moving along at a pretty good pace, especially for a Harley but the 1st two guys in my group passed him. He moved to the right edge to let the rest of us by. I was beside him and motioned him to go ahead, it's kinda nice to see some one that can ride hustle a Harley thru the mountains. He kept up a really good pace and was not holding us up at all. When we came to a faster section of road and the speeds started to get kinda high we went around the guy and kinda forgot about him. About 15 miles later we all stopped at a stop sign, yes they are few and far between up there, to discuss the next road to ride. Just a few seconds after we stopped the Harley rider pulled up. He came up to me and thanked me for letting him ride along with us. He said he hadn't gone that fast in a lot of years and had just got back into riding after a 10 year lay off. He was on a new 114in something or other, a fat boy I think, and said he just got it and was ready to take it in for his first service. He was using one of those flip up full face helmets and when he opened it it was obvious he was an older gent. Come to find out he was 78 and loved being back on a bike. I think the moral here might be you never forget how to ride and the new Harleys go pretty **** good with the right rider on them.

I love it. I'm not a guy who hates on someone else's ride, but I did always wonder what the appeal of paying more for an underperforming bike was all about (at least on paper).

I mean it's hard to justify paying $18k for a Fat Bob when you can get a Super Duke, etc, for that kind of money. And how much performance is it going to be better than a $7k Vulcan S? I get the appeal of sound, but if an MT-10 or Tuono can give you that lovely sound too for significantly more performance and a cheaper cost.

I won't deny they look badass though.

Hey Stock, I'm starting to lean towards a DR650 as my "Southern Utah" bike. Looks like it has a lot of die-hard support, is bullet proof, loads of aftermarket support, and is very cheap compared to the competition.

I know you've owned a few. Give me your thoughts on it and what do you think of the latest incarnation? (I love the color).
