2012 Harley-Davidson Road King®
Great bike but....By (I am an Owner) on Oct 03, 2012
This is my 5th HD. Purchased brand new. Powerful plus. Comfortable. Great looks. Ditto gas mileage. My last HD was a 2001. The 2012 is like 200 lbs heavier. Takes a couple of weeks to get used to the weight. The wide rear wheel provides outstanding stability in slow driving and minimum turning radius. ...
Only questionable item is the thunderous clashing of shifting gears! Sounds as if I am trying to destroy each gear with a sledge hammer. I will take it to the dealership and ask if this is a featured item on the bike or a screw up.
First HarleyBy (I am an Owner) on Jun 04, 2012
This is my first Harley Davidson but my third motorcycle. I love it. Bought it brand new. Zero miles when I took it for a test ride. It handles great. It is responsive and the 103 c.i. motor really moves. There is quite a lot of travel in the fron forks, however, and I was not informed of this. ... As a result, my gaurdian bell has put a large dent in my front fender. This is apparently a known flaw with the bike as the service people say they see this several times a week. Other than that, I love the bike. It is super comfortable and I can't wait to get it out on my first road trip this weekend.
