    This is a great bike and I think it's readily available now. Even though it's been marketed as a 2017 model it's a 2016 bike that is available to buy now. I haven't actually seen one out on the road...

    Think it's a toss up between a new CVO or a V-Rod for me. I like the design and specifications of both models. Also they're not overly expensive but just a bit more than I can pay out on a brand new...

    I'm not sure I'd be comfortable buying spare parts online. Though I imagine if you live somewhere really remote it could be a useful option. Still, I recommend tracking down an authorized seller.

    I also do most of my riding at the weekends, typically I'll try and get out early on a Saturday for about an hour or I'll go out on a Sunday evening for anywhere from 1 to 3 hours, depending on how...

    Pre Ride Checks

    Before I got out on a ride I usually give my bike a quick once over to check that everything is ok. It's not a comprehensive check but a quick look at a few things to make sure that I'm good to go. ...

    Extra Fuel

    Sometimes you can undertake a journey that is just beyond the capabilities of your bike or you can set off for a ride without realising just how much you have left in the tank.

    Why Harley Davidson?

    In the face of so much competition from companies in Japan, Italy, and Germany, what is it about Harley Davidson that you love so much. For me they produce quality iconic bikes and have an appeal...

    I think the power and ride experience play a big part in the overall appeal of Harleys, along with the design of course. It takes time to get used to using the power correctly but it's some thing of...

    I also like to check the brakes and get a general feel of the bike. The feeling of the brakes and the throttle play a large part in your riding experience and how you'll navigate the road with the...

    Other motorists bother me the most, no matter how experienced you are, you can never be 100% sure what other people are thinking or planning to do. Also some motorists seem to be less aware of bikes...

    Having a full toolbox that covers most basic issues is a good idea but also secondary to maintaining your bike to a good standard that makes it reliable to take out and ride. You'll get flagged by...

    Engines leak sometimes, I'm not sure it's always a big problem. I'd had an engine leak and just before I took it in for checking the leak disappeared. It then came back before disappearing for a long...

    So does this mean we'll have to look forward to less powerful bikes in the future? Not too sure which models contained the super tuners but as they're on their way out it seems there'll be a drop in...

    I've also heard it's best to use your legs though I've never actually seen someone attempt to do it. Think a lot depends on just how heavy your bike is tbh. Just be sensible with your back whatever...

    What was the end result? Seemed like a nice bike, a bit pricey though as you can pick up decent Harley's for under $10,000. Though I suppose it depends which model you're after.
