    That's not spoiling yourself. That is a necessity! Nice ride.

    I ride a 2016 black breakout and my wife rides a 2019 black cherry lowrider! I had to replace the seat and the handle bars on my breakout because of my lower back. If my back had no issues, it would still have the drag bars. That is how a breakout should look! Keep the rubber down and stay in the wind!!! Rock and Roll and harleys go hand in hand!!!

    That is one sweet looking Hog, seriously! If I had the nuts to get on a road bike, that is the one I would want. Modern looking with some of the classic HD elements and I love those rims and the spokes!

    Old schmold!
    I'll take an 87 Eliminator any day of the week
    AND give ANY modern bike a run for their money especially with low 9s or high 8s ¼mi.
    Had to get rid of it because of the Mrs. :redface:

    Nice!

    I would love to score a Harley..Or an Indian, but my problem is like with guitars or whisky, I prefer older stuff.

    In the case of motorcycles, I want stuff from the '40's and 50's.

    @DaDoc ….Old Harleys are fun, but they “ALWAYS” broke and leaked…..The newer Harley’s are more reliable than years past…

    As for the Indians I have no clue…
    The newer Harleys also give you a nicer ride than the older ones where you felt the whole road..

    HNMD @Sir Don. That's a beauty!

    I used to have a MC back in my younger days, I miss it...I'm too scared now.

    My father in law left this squirreled away in the back of one of his many garages. 1970 Bonneville. Hadn't seen the light of day in 20+ years...

    What model is that? 114 CU inch displacement? I have not looked at Harley's in a long time. My Jeep is kinda my motorcycle now.

    Very sharp

    Congrats man! That's actually one of the nicest lookin Harleys I've ever seen and I ain't just stroking you, love those wheels!

    Ahh one of my dream bikes, I've always wanted an old Bonneville.
