2012 Harley-Davidson Road King® Classic
My Best Riding Experience.By (I am an Owner) on Jun 13, 2020
I absolutely love the HD Road King Classic (I wish they were being made in the US). The simplicity, the spoked wheels, the leather bags, the white wall tires, and the avalanche of aftermarket parts. It was such a joy and a beauty to behold.
For my retirement, I purchased a brand new ... 2012 Road King Classic (blue/black) that I configured with my preferences. It had the touring trunk, the HD GPS, the BOOM audio twin speakers, adjustable backrest, etc. Unfortunately, in 2017, the divorce lawyers required a sacrifice and my dream motorcycle was lost on the chopping block. But I digress.
The current 2020 HD Road Kings have lots of the same appeal of the 2012 Classic. Though cosmetically different, the 2020 RK it's still sexy, with its updated colors, hard bags and Slicer II Cast Aluminum wheels. My favorite 2020 color is Silver Pine/Spruce.
I'm 56 years young and have been riding since I was 13. I've lost count of the number of motorcycles I've had the pleasure to ride and own. Having said that, my 2012 Road King Classic was the best riding experience I've had on a motorcycle. I'm retired now and I don't think I'll ever be able to afford a motorcycle again, but at the very least I have plenty of found experiences. No one will ever take those away. If you own one, enjoy the good times and make lots of good memories.
2012 Road King ClasicBy (I am an Owner) on Jul 07, 2014
I've owned about 10 motorcycles over the past 35 years and my 2012 Road King Classic is by far the best. Recently did an Iron Butt Saddlesore 1000 traveling 1110 miles in 17.5 hours on it and the trip was almost effortless. Very comfortable the whole trip with the stock seat. Cruise control and ... anti-lock brakes are for sure the way to go.
Always have a smile while riding my kingBy (I am an Owner) on Nov 03, 2013
I own a kawasaki concours 14 which i think is a great motorcycle and fun to ride when going fast... I wanted to buy a second motorcycle that would give me some fun without having to go fast as a jet.... The road king classic is a fun bike even at slow speed and has enough power to not be a slow bike... ... Not japanese cruiser is as much fun to ride. , get one...
So much style!By (I am an Owner) on Mar 07, 2013
This bike runs SO much smoother than my buddy's 2008 Suzuki Boulevard C109R. Even the saddle bags are bigger. He can't even fit his whole walker in his. Quit playing with the kids and just get a Harley.
