Review Summary: 

love this bike, great looking, wonderful performance, goes wicked fast up hills and all, no problem passing people, very good suspension- i have back, neck and nerve damage and this bike supports me great..very dependable and lots of fun..Cool

Best Features: 
looks a lot like my old 87 softail custom, half the price and rides awesome.

make the oil changing lines and filter more accessible- you have to remove exhaust pipe to get at them or add the 'kit' to relocate the oil filter/hose.
