I owned a 57 panhead for a a lot of years in my youth and kick my a** for letting it go. HD used to make beautiful bikes but now they just look boxy to me. Drove a couple before I picked up my 900 and my 900 was a good choice for a great price.

you're moving up on the weight of bikes, the norm is guys downsizing the weight for safety reasons

I will add, compared to Kawasaki; Harley Davidsons have an extremely low speed of Gravity and can be balanced easily on/off the bike.

(Seriously my 855lb Road Glide balances better than a Vulcan S.
