I love anything to do with Harley Davidson and have two beautiful children and a beautiful partner. In my spare time i like building websites and love anything to do with the internet.


  1. In the end, I can't deny the fact that there are faster, more comfortable bikes out there, and I really think this guy is kind of right in some aspects, but for me, a practical bike is that one which lets you do lots of things and offers a huge range of parts and accessories, and no other brand gets this better than Harley does.

  2. This bike, and other Harley's….are designed to have a different, rugged and rough feel. You're supposed to shake, and be loud. It's old school, it's a different flavor of testosterone. I enjoyed my buddies Ninja zx6r very much, but because of how light it was, it felt like a toy I was supposed to abuse. On a harley, it feels more like a vehicle, and less of a toy….even though it is a toy lol. To each his own.

  3. Had a 48 , traded it for a Fat Boy. Loved it though, nice bike. Put a lot of miles on it and it was trouble free. Had V & H exhaust and upgrade computer along with Screaming Eagle intake. Bike would run pretty good and sounded great.  This Brit idiot, or whatever he is doesn't know WTF he is talking about.

  4. is their a similar bike look to the forty eight but with a second seat in the back for a passenger? thinking of one of these instead of a motorsport. thanks guys

  5. the first thing you do is remove the throttle ,mirrors and the handlebars…higher more comfortable bars and tighter more feed back throttle and grips.,mirrors shaped like a skeleton hands flipping people off…thats what you do with a harley with those low ass bars and dingleberry mirrors suck!

  6. This guy is such a negative nancy. Period. He can't stop reviewing without a negative comment on somthing. Your just biast against Harley's. The bikes are meant for a fun and rugged ride. Get over it. it's not your fancy woman ride it's a mans ride.
