Let me first say, the old saying "There are two types of cyclist...those who ride Harleys and those who wished they rode a Harley" has been proven false!!!
I had an '09 Superglide for three years and finally decided I wanted quality over image. Harley does make good looking bikes, no argument there, but modern reliability and design should merit favor.
The Kingpin is by far a more comfortable ride, superior as well in handling and acceleration. Better gas mileage is an additional plus, especially considering the engine is somewhat larger.
Yes, it is nice owning a bike not as common as a dandelion...one on every street corner. Another great feature is being able to toggle thru displays without taking hands off the handlebars(more convenient than the old Hog).
At highway speeds the bike just glides and talk about a bike that handles the curves really well!Slow speed manuevering is excellent as well.
The brakes very solid and firm. Fingers crossed, hopefully this bike will not be a dissapointment many miles from now. Vic's have an outstanding reputaion so we'll see.
Upgrades/Accessories: Victory windshield. Soon to come, stage 1 upgrade.
