This is the absolute best motorcycle I have owned. It is far superior in looks and performance than the ninja I had previously. The ride is impeccable at any speed , gets around town , and delivers a superb ride on highway excursions. I bought the last remaining 2017 here in Michigan in my area and love this bike . It takes some getting used to as far as the lean angle in the corners but what a machine.. Classic chopper styling with.a superb handling make this a perfect all around bike. If you find one buy it, you won't be disappointed

I love this bike and hate it about the same. Factory stock this bike soon needs rider pegs, grips, repairs. Had brand new since 2007 and we’re passing 54,000 miles together. You want to customize your bike anyway so when the pegs started sagging and the grips started becoming rubbery sticky is wasn’t a big deal. The first major thing was the engine stutter on acceleration. Found out the wiring harness didn’t allow for the engine torque stretched the rear injector connector and starts giving you rear injector open error code. My fender fluff and I are motor heads so we have started doing 100 percent of our own repairs. Took him in (yea his name is Dane) for the 10k and 20k but after costing about a grand to do the service and having to readjust the setup we like we are 100 percent home maintenance. Another problem since purchase is if we go over a mountain pass or have a major air temp/density change the bike will shut down and we have to off/on the emc to reset the engine electronics. A growling sound at idle and in neutral ended up being primary inner bearing failure. We’ve had nearly every imaginable problem and repair at 54k miles. A new set of tires every year that cost as much as 4 new tires for the car. We love to ride but man does it get frustrating at times. Fluff told me to shut up and ride so …… see ya out there

This is the old style WG... Not the new crap they introduced in 09'. First and only HD I've owned. I like the long rake and chopper looks of this bike. didn't like the stock seat so I changed it to the old style WG seat. Stage 1 kit brought it to life. don't feel the need to run it any harder or faster. Turns heads everywhere and gets a lot of compliments. I have changed oil and spark plugs every year and wash and detail it regularly, but other than that it's been maintenance free. The TC88 is a notoriously reliable and bulletproof motor and has been known to log anwhere from 60 - 80K miles before needing a top end rebuild. I know Goldwing owners that would be extremely envious of that kind of reliability. It's fast, flashy, loud and loaded with torque...not to mention a blast to ride. Love this bike. Will take it to the grave.

This is the bike that I always dreamed I would own...almost. Bought mine used with 10k on it. The electric start is flawless. The finish is top notch and overall I think this is most representative of old school choppers from the 60's and 70's. Having grown up in a biker household, this is the bike I always wanted. One caveat...rider comfort. Now when I first get on the bike and througout the first 10 miles or so, it's really nice. I like the factory ape hangers and the forward controls lean you back for that easyrider look. But after about 20 miles with no breaks, it starts to get into your back a little. don't get me wrong, it's still a blast and cool to ride, but it starts to require a little more effort. Add to that some heavy head winds that tend to make you kite and it can be a workout to get your miles in that day. If you can get past those issues I believe it's the coolest bike Harely ever made IMO. Powerful 88CU and smooth shifting 6 speed transmission. Plenty of get up and go...I have no problem getting 0-60 in a few short seconds and it'll crack 100mph easily if you don't let off. Gobs of torque and oustanding styling. I love my Wide Glide.

Truly a great all around bike for the solo rider (the wife has her own ride so I can't speak for 2-up riding). This bike does everything well; be it around town or out of state. With the HD Sidewinder seat (it's a pretty flat and hard seat - you buy it for the looks and find out later that is actually very comfortable) and the factory mini apes I can ride all day long, no problem. With a Stage One, V&H Big Radius and the Cobra F2000R and SE air cleaner it starts and runs prefect - it sounds good too. With 13500 miles (it's almost a year old) I haven't had problem one. Very light steering, and in my opinion; this bike handles and brakes very well for a cruiser (I've had 7 bikes, 2 Harleys, of 1000cc or more). I've gotten an achy back and rear end on some other bikes (even when they had windshields - and aftermarket seats and handle bars) but on the Wide Glide I never do - who would think? I admit that 600 miles was the most I've had the opportunity to go in one day so far, but I still felt very fresh - I could have gone another 300-400 miles or more I'm sure. I live in Colorado in the foothills and ride everyday to work as long as there is no ice or snow on the road. The 2007 Wide Glide runs great at 100 degrees or at 20 degrees or at anything in between for that matter; the FI works great. Riding in the Rocky Mountains on twisting roads, on the open highway, or through Denver, it doesn't matter - the bike is at home anywhere. I say if you get the chance to buy one; go for it - you won't be sorry.

Then, I went to a dealer and looked around but there was no Wide Glides there. They called me to tell that they had one coming in. I went there 4 days later to see it and it was sold. So, I got to look at it and knew that's what I wanted. So, I called around and picked one up 400 kms away. The only bad thing so far is that the seat on the it is kind of hard when going on long rides. But it is nice riding and looking bike. The pearl yellow shows off the chrome.

My wife blew me away this year when she surprised me with an 06 Dyna Wide Glide. I had been off motorcycles for almost 20 years but quickly got back in the saddle. What a rush!! I love my Dyna and have had zero problems with it so far. The 6 speed transmission is awesome (especially after adding the Vance & Hines Big Shots). I can hit 6th gear at 50 mph and still have plenty of power to accelerate. My wife and I recently spent a weekend cruising the Virginia mountains. We are hooked!!
