Welcome to the Org, and congrats on a great bike! Gotta admit I do like the Fat Boy, and wouldn't mind having it as a third bike (that is, after I'd buy either a 600/750/1000 Gixxer, or ZX-1000).

Something funny, I was reading Iron Pony magazine that my manager had @ work and he showed me a artical and it was written by a lady, " Guy's that ride Harley's with the obnoxtiously loud pipes are just trying to make up for something else." NOW THAT"S FUNNY....

(TheAtomicAss @ Oct. 13 2006,08:23) So what does break on those things, anyway?  You'd think they could have fixed it by now!
They've come a long way. Their mechanical problems were pretty much solved in 1999 at the end of the "evolution" engine. The twin cams are very dependable reliable engines that I have heard they have had very few problems with. Main issue is people lowering the idle below 1K rpm's to get the potato potato potato exhaust note and the oil system not operating correctly.
Now they are having issues complying with the Federal Pollution standards. They've had to stop using carbs and are solely on EFI systems now. They really don't have a good grip on it yet but they are trying. The 07's are running so friggin lean the exhaust pipes produce enough heat to make it semi-uncomfortable to ride some models. aftermarket parts eleviate the problem but it puts the bike outside the mandated federal guidelines for production vehicles. Of course this also requires re-mapping etc so it isn't cheap. Basically you have to spend $1500 - $2000 MORE dollars to get a bike that runs as it should from the factory. ($900 Exhaust, $500 H-D Programmer, Dyno time and labor to install it all)
Their other weak point is electronics in their Road Sofa line. They've got some hiccups with OEM electronics going south quickly but they aren't as unroadworthy as they once were. Still not worth the money they charge but they are better.

Harley guys don't wave because they are ticked off that they spent WAY MORE money than we did and have a crappier ride.

They CAN'T wave cause they have to hang on so hard to those paint-shakers!!

Ever pull up behind one and try to see anything in the rear-view?? Those V-twins vibrate so bad I don't know how they can stand it!

Maybe that's why biker chicks dig riding on Harleys?!?
