I like SS bikes but, IMHO, they all look alike to me. HD retains value pretty well, and I'm not sure if you have noticed, there must be SOME sort of market for them since the mfg'Ride Smart are copying them.

Gotcha

I feel like I got plenty of all of that and a unique style . Mine really turns heads.

But, hey. If you don't like the HD then, by all means, don't buy one

Please stay the out of my city if you're going to go that fast. I don't want you on the same street as my family.

Copy is not what they do. They know the market and give the people what they want, smart.

prolly better than that but I wouldnt take it there.
stock mine would do 120 with ease, but I dont really ride it up there, the limit is 70 so I mainly cruise in the 80 mph range.
Mine will get there really pronto though.
