    It's totally different to anything I've ridden before, even my old Honda Shadow cruiser, the test ride was the couple of hours ride back after paying for it and aside from the clutch being a tad heavy it's bob on.

    114 'sit down & hold on's' OK fast it ain't, it's still being run in but it'll get to above the national speed limit quick enough and just sit there rock steady with no bother barely ticking over at 2k, redline is around 5.5k, for sure I did immediately miss the extra 5,000 rippums I had on the Striple, but adjust your brain and enjoy the ride and where you used to find yourself stretching into triple digit speeds you start enjoying the ride @ 60-70mph.

    Thankfully the previous owner had got rid of the tow hitch number plate arrangement and stuck a yank one instead, with a black backed plate too so that's saved me one job.
    He did also fit a sissy bar & luggage rack, but it's quick release so once I sourced a few bolts that's going on ebay.

    The mirrors are the worst I've ever tried to use so they're going, other jobs include new end cans, new indicators front n back and fit a brake light, but no rush.

    Some hate the headlight, I love it.
    It fits me like a glove, it goes, stops and turns well, and I've never been so popular when I pulled into the pub to have a pint by the river

    Between the lump, gear indicator, fuel gauge and self cancelling indicators Harley are a ways off still being labelled as agricultural

    Nice!

    What do the pipes look like when you remove that odd heat shield?

    I'd probably look at a better looking seat too, but that's the idea of Hardley's, right. Make them your own.

    The pipes look janky, 2 into 1 into 2 with the cat.
    The seat is comfy, it's fine for me

    Happy new bike day, hope you enjoy it.

    It looks a bit like a piece of military hardware, I'm not sure whether I like the look of it or not, you obviously do, which is all that matters.
