I couldn’t say no when I had the opportunity to try a touring contraption like this, with wind shield, floorboards, chrome rivets and the whole shebang. Unfortunately it where still fitted with the standard exhausts, so the legendary “potato-potato” where drowned by the metallic tinkling of the Twin Cam engine. Now I understand why that’s the first thing they change when getting a Harley straight of the factory floor. I’ve tried a few Harleys by now (more on that later) and this one with its standard setup seemed a bit too domesticated for my taste. I’d like a bike like that to rattle, rumble and make some noise.
