Sat on a Wide Glide...Neat!
I went to see one of those new 2010 HD Wide Glides. This is the one with the incredible rake and flamed tank.
First impression: Pegs are really far forward and super comfy (I'm 5'9") with little short drag-stye bars. Typical HD fit and finish. Feels like the new Sabre from a sitting-on-it-not-moving point of view. Seat height is pretty low.
The seat seems comfortable, the pillion isn't much more than a nod, and the sissy bar is 3" tall. I'm a sucker for anything with flames so it's in.
Overall, a nice bike for a decent price. Canadian, it is about $4k more than a Sabre but the value is there. Another one for the fantasy garage.
