Only one real complaint....the rest is sweet as pie!
By Steve F.(Owner), Sep. 27, 2008
My 2008 FLHX Street Glide was a birthday gift to myself for my 45th birthday. It is my first Touring model, my first bike with a real fairing, my first bike with a windshield, my first bike with a radio/CD player....and I am sure there a few more firsts there some place, but I digress.

By Bob Locke(Owner), Apr. 28, 2009
The last time I owned a Harley was in Germany in 1975. It was a Sportster and shook me most of the time. Just recently I purchased a 2008 Street Glide (White Gold Pearl) and I am once again a Happy Camper. Being only 5'7", I had to have it lowered in both the rear & front...I consider it ...
