HD Road King

  1. I just sat on a mates brand new (3 weeks old) HD Road King and I was surprised at how cramped I felt. Is it me or the swept back bars and low seat that made me feel like this. I was disappointed as I thought there would be heaps of room like in a lounge chair compared to my RF. The shape of the tank was a little uncomfortable as well being to wide at the seat.
    Is this a Harley trait that owners get used to? At least it sounded good.

  2. Yup,Thats what they're are mostly about... :LOL:
    I much prefer to be a hooligan on a Buell :twisted:
  3. I spent about 2 hours on one, and I would have to say that it certainly didn't feel cramped. Slow and heavy yes, but not cramped. Very comfortable for me (5,10). Unless you are about 15ft tall, I don't really see how you could feel cramped. :?
