    A great review.  You really know your stuff.  I am 6'1 300lbs of muscle and I loved my Road King because it was big enough and had the torque to pull me up hills etc without winding it up like most sport bikes require.  I sold my King a few years back and now really miss it; no other bike fits like that and has the rear travel to keep me suspended without bottoming out on rough roads. Looking forward to getting a new Road King with a more powerful engine; mine was an old evo, so I'm hoping for some more torque to play with.

    Matt, is the ABS option also linked? Is the upgrade comparable to whats on the Electra-Glide? Thanks!

    Great review, helped me make the decision to buy a 2017 Road King a couple of months ago. I love my road king, great bike, rides great, and a perfect bike for someone my size. 6' 290lbs. The 107 is an awesome motor.

    Very nice review. Question: are power ports an option in the hard bags? If not, where would one generally place a power port on this bike? Thanks!

    Great review Matt. Really helps a lot. I'm pleasantly surprised that being a dealer you don't toe the corporate line like so many others. Pros AND cons is pretty refreshing. And yeah, I liked it enough to subscribe and look forward to watching a lot more.

    Hey Scott. Outstanding work, thanks. I really like the Road King…alot. I'm 5'-9" 150. In really good shape, but still. Without meeting face to face, is your experience any issues with guys my size on the King?

    The 2017's may be better than the older models but I went with the Indian Springfield. It outclasses the RK in virtually every category.
