2006 Harley-Davidson Road King® Classic
Road King LoveBy (I am an Owner) on Nov 13, 2008
What else can you say except you haven't ridden until you have ridden a Harley. I was fresh out of the Riders Edge course and had honestly not thought about buying a Harley. I was leaning toward a Honda VTX 1800, wanting a big bike. But after going to the local Honda dealership with about $13k ... in my pocket and not having a salesman even approach me I got a wild hair and decided to walk into the Harley Dealership where I took the course. I had always liked the way the Heritage Classic looked. I was amazed with the customer service I received as soon as I stepped in the door, from a girl at the shirt counter! I was assigned a salesman, and told him my thoughts about the Heritage. We went over to a few and after sitting on them I realized that it felt "short" to me. He suggested that I sit on a Road King and the rest was history! They had my favorite color blue and I was shown all the ins and outs of the bike. Being a new rider I asked if they would deliver it and they said of course! Since then, I have put about 6k miles on my bike and have had no trouble at all. The engine gives me enough power to haul my big butt around, it handles great and is stable. Then of course is how it sounds....! I get great glances on my bike everytime I am out. It has great lights at night time and gets pretty good mileage. My only regret is that the next years model was a six speed. The Road King is an excellent bike, and the service that HD presents is A++++. If you don't ride one, you just don't know.
