2011 Harley-Davidson Road King®
Over priced, under performingBy (I am an Owner) on Sep 07, 2011
HD is still pedaling the same tech as the last 50 years. I bought this bike for my wife because she really has a thing for HD. It gets terrible gas mileage and it does not start up easily. I am concerned about taking it for a long distance trip as it seems very un-reliable. The bike has a bout 2k ... on it now. It is decently comfortable but it is very heavy and not very fast. It also handles terribly if we go on any roads with turns. We are selling this bike now to get something better.

I've had my FLHR one month now & have logged 1,500 local miles. Ergonomically perfect for me. Very easy & natural to ride. Very comfortable for the long hall. The 96 engine has plenty of power & torque if you shift it properly. The 103 engine on the Classic is probably more fun but it's not worth ... the $3,000 premium. Same goes for the Street Glide's bat wing, radio & extra gauges. Very cool but not worth the $2,000 premium over my Road King. At $16,900 the standard is the best buy in Harley's touring line.
