I think that sums it up nicely, well said.I'd put my v2k up against any of my hardleys including my electraglide and state factly kaw makes a better bike. the v2k motor is infinitely superior. The frame, suspension, brakes, wiring n electrics, not to mention the engineering, serviceability, add on infinum. It is infinitely a better bilt machine.
The hardleys a hardley and their ok at best, they are just not a better piece of machinery is all. 16 layers of krome n paint sure look good, but underneath it is still farm grade tech, performance and service life. I have em, I ride em, I enjoy em for what they are, but I don't worship them as they don't even come close to measuring up. poncho
