    Hey man, thanks for posting this video! I test rode a new Street Bob and a new Forty Eight the other day as both are appealing to me. I haven't been a long-distance highway rider in the past…mostly just around town on my '79 Honda CB650 that was modified into a brat-style bike. I love the sporty feel of my bike, but it's small and could use more power at higher speeds as well as stability to combat wind since it's a smaller, lighter bike.

    I"m just curious which of those two did you actually get more joy out of riding? It sounds like you enjoyed the torque of the Street Bob, but aside from that which would you choose? The rides that I went on were too short for me to really get a feel for the bikes and it was my first time on a HD, so the experience was very alien to me from the vibrations, haha!

    Thanks in advance!

    Thinking this or the Victory Octane, would this be a good beginner bike? I have road my dads Road King I haven't moved the acceleration yet he taught me by just releasing the clutch. The turning was a little difficult since it was my 1st time but I loved every minute of it lol. I'm stuck here any advice would be great! Awesome review btw:)

    Did you buy this bike? I bought this for my first bike and still trying to learn how to ride. Dropped it twice. I love the look of this bike but now starting to wonder if it's just too big for me.

    No key needed to start the engine? If you were parked in a lot and somebody who knew how to ride stole it, they could get away!

    well weekend bikers need to leave this bike alone. I use mine as primary
    ride and back and forth to work. 1690 cc and 98 torque. love how
    everyone goes to harley and takes it for a 4-7 mile ride and gives
    review. had mine 1 year now. great bike. only have 4300 miles on it
    because got where I could not ride it for 2 months. but going to do an
    owners review of this bike.

    Quick question about the starter switch. So it doesn't have a key or something? Like if you park that in the Walmart parking lot, what prevents somebody walking and turning it on, and of course possibly stealing it? If there's nothing preventing that, not sure I would to leave that unattended. Not the best idea if you ask me. Just wondering about that.

    Said acts of hooliganism would include, but not be limited to, leaving an empty starbucks cup on the side of the road.
