    LOL!!

    I now have a Fatboy as just love the look of it, but it is slightly faster than the one I originally had as a demo back in 2010 and then in 2012 so now has the speed to match the look

    In what way you didn't like the FatBoy?

    How do Carlo, the Fatboy actually didnt appeal in anyway but my desperation to own a Harley overtook what i actually thought, firstly being 6'1" i felt way to big for it and then various stuff like the solid wheels, the bars, the headlamp and the big fenders put me right off in fact i told the sales manager at Newcastle that i wanted to cut the rear fender down and stick a set of Renthal bars on he said " you cant do that" and low and behold 15 years later they bring out the slim with everything i threatened to do to the Fatboy. i should have bought a Heritage same bike in my opinion but with spoked wire wheels. Anyway Carlo each to their own we all have different tastes it what makes the world go round in fact i think that the Batwing Fairing could be customised i.e. the wing bits could be narrowed right in, yes i know the hand protection would be reduced but so what, imagine a batwing nice and narrow with a few lines from the Road Glided shark nose thrown in.
