Great overall bike
By dennisb464(Owner), Feb. 17, 2009
This is my third bike, second Harley(first was a Sportster 1200 low). This bike handles great in town and rides great on the freeway. The large front tire realy smoothes out the rough roads and the counter balanced motor is very smooth at all speeds. Good touring or commuting bike with lots of s... Read Full Review

worth taking for a test drive
By Barry(Owner), Mar. 23, 2009
I bought this bike when it was first released. I traded up from a metric wanna-be. I've driven about a 1/2 dozen different models of Harley's but after driving the counterbalanced "Softail" line, I knew I stumbled onto a winner. The bike is very smooth (no kidney belt needed, and no hands ... Read Full Review

Smooth Machine
By Joe E.(Owner), Oct. 17, 2008
On my test ride I found the softail classic to be nimble on the take off, well balanced, comfortable and smooth. My wife who owns a 2001 softail found the 09 to be lighter feeling, I suppose better balanced since she is only 5'7". She liked it so well she custom ordered one the following week.
