Harley Davidson 2016 Fat Bob first ride review

Harley Davidson 2016 Fat Bob first ride review.

Ok so this is my review of the 2016 Fat Bob, I must admit this HD could be my next bike and during the review I cannot control my excitement about this.

Overall the Street Bob I believe is a fantastic package however the cost including the upgrades that I want to do is racking up. Therefore I will need to wait until next year for this bike.

excuse some of the bloopers and the odd interruption from the HD Shaw team – lol.

    I have a 2013 Fatbob…Vance and Hines 2 into 1 …Harley tallboy seat no other mods…one doesn't need to do too much as they come stock from the factory perfectly balanced… best bike I've ever owned….I know exactly what you're talking about handling wise etc etc …anyone thinking of a Harley i would recommend ride one of these babies during your selection process…stay upright from the land of OZ….cheers

    Had a fat bob for a couple of years. Loads of fun scraping the pegs on roundabouts. Engine is an absolute peach, standard rear shocks are abysmal, wallowed like he'll on switchbacks. I'd love another dyna as theyre so enigmatic but I'd swap the rear shocks out for something decent.

    I started with a 2007 Street Bob, traded it up for the 2014 Fat Bob for more bike that handled better. 2014 was totalled so I bought the 2016 Fat Bob as my replacement, but WOW! the 103 High Output is a beast compared to the 2014 base 103

    I tried a fat bob while back and i shared the exact feelings you have. Fits like a glove. It s a great bike and very agile in traffic as well. I tried it in Istanbul traffic which is quite cramped, so it wont fail you in traffic. By the you may try v&h side shots too.

    I currently ride a 2004 Dyna Low Rider and love it. This is the 2nd Low Rider I have owned but I am curious about the Fat Bob's handling and the perks of having a wider front tire?

    If you think you liked that FATBOB, the new one comes with the "High Output" 103. It's fully upgraded to the "Screamin Eagle" stage 1, adding the .511 cams, and heavy breather intake. You will love it even more, with a tuner box it is faster than the new "Milwaukee 8" engine bikes of 2017
