2009 Harley Davidson Street Bob

Ran this as a long term test bike for RiDE Magazine to see if I could finally ‘get’ what Harleys are all about. Evidently I couldn’t – it was so uncomfortable, no ground clearance, crap handling. Basically if you wanted it to do anything other than sit around looking shiny it was useless. And it didn’t stay shiny long either. It didn’t do anything that I require of a motorcycle, so I was glad to see the back of it.

Place name sums it up really.

Heavy, wobbly, slow and over-rated. Said the bike.

The exhaust fell off....

Original seat - so thin and low it put all my weight through the base of my spine. Excruciating.

Optional fatter seat - much, much better. I still chocked it up an extra couple of inches to get some leg room though.
