2012 ULTRA LIMITED
By CRAIG MCTAVISH(Owner), Jul. 30, 2012
THE ULTRA LIMITED IS VERY SMOOTH RIDING AND HANDLES WELL. THE CAT IN THE EXHAUST CREATES A LOT OF HEAT AND HOLDS BACK THE 103 FULL POTENTIAL. THIS WAS THE WORSE MOVE HARLEY EVER MADE. WAS IT TO COMPLY WITH EPA OR GET YOU TO BUY MORE STUFF FROM HARLEY? LIKE A STAGE ONE KIT? BECAUSE FOR ANOTHER 1500 D... Read Full Review
