I got to ride one a couple years ago - it felt like something you'd build in your barn out of WWII-era tractor parts. If you really sit and look at one, that assesment wouldn't be too far off, lol. It's a pretty gutless machine, if you go down this road at least get the 1200cc-class engine, whatever they call it.
I'm not a cruiser guy, but I also have rode a Victory Hammer - it was soooo much better built and finished then the H-D. The only H-D I would consider owning would be the XLR1200, with the race package installed. I will say that the simplicity of H-D machinery is somewhat appealing in the fact they are super simple to work on, and the parts/aftermarket support is phenominal.
