Default Interesting Read

http://canadamotoguide.com/2013/07/0...cvo-road-king/

I love the look of the paint and the chrome on Harley's

I was blown away by the fake red line on the tach and the fact that the Harley dealer warned the tester that the hard bags are not water tight..... Can you say WTF and only 34000.00

Good read though

I thought this part was amusing:

"The King drew much appreciation in our travels, but I noted that a great deal of this was from men in their 60s, 70s, and 80s, many of whom I could never see being able to shift the substantial Harley off its side stand."

I'd prefer a regular RK with the windscreen and 110 engine from the one reviewed.

Rain collectors was the first thing that crossed my mind when I saw them for the first time. But then who buys something that flashy to ride in the rain?

Maybe that's why they leak. The water gets by the speaker.
