This is the firt truly big bike that I've ever owned. I've owned quite a few bikes, mostly sport and standards. I figured that this Road King Custom would be comfortable, but I was afraid that it might be a whale and cumbersome. Well I was wrong. It is comfortable, but it is also incredibly nimble for such a big bike! What a great surprise! The streamlined floor boards give you much more lean angle than other baggers. It is no sport bike, but it will move. I put the stage one kit on and a pair of Bassani true duals. I've had it up to 115mph. One tip: Get rid of the Beach Bars right away. They are awful(unless you want to feel like you are pushing a wheel barrow and you enjoy not being able to steer at slow speeds). I put Harley Dresser bars. They are great. They made the Road King into a completly different bike (manuverable and comfortable).

This bike is a beauty...performance, style, reliability...more smiles per mile. I took my bike on a 26 state Posse Ride and its performance was spectacular. I was a former V-Star 1100 rider and while that bike fulfilled my needs, I have never looked back after getting my Road King Custom. Loading the bike with luggage and riding it long and hard, it took it all and was ready for more of the open road. Electronic Cruise control made the ride a breeze. Power to pull and climb up mountains came effortlessly, and manueverability at slow speeds came naturally. This bike wanted to stay up on its own, a balanced and beautiful beast. The Road King Custom is an awesome partner for the longer rides in your life. One suggestion, forgo the stock seat and purchase a Corban seat for true comfort.

For me the handlebars were the most uncomfortable thing about the bike. It sets like your pushing a wheel borrow and killed my back. I changed the bars out the second week I had it. The Road King Screaming Eagle fat bars did the trick for me. I have ridden sun up to sun down and have the usual aches and pains for a middle aged guy. The Custom Road King is one of the best bikes I have owned. ken Az

Brand new and going through the break in phase so I'll update this as I feel the need to... I absolutley love this bike's looks and the way it handles for a large bike. I bought the Pearle Yellow, which I think looks great on a motorcycle and helps you get noticed by the idiot cagers for a little added safety factor. I gave it a 4 star on performance because it's not really a performance bike and if I wanted this I would of bought 2 Hayabusa's. People that complain about its lack of speed or quickness just don't get it, plus there are several stage kits available to help out if wanted. The perfomance is adequate and functional for today's roadways though. I have the EFI version and it's fired right up everytime so far with just a little tap on the start button. I actually like the stock beach bars and think they fit well for me, most don't, but I do. Just a cosmetically beautiful, comfortable bike, and I get compliments every time I've ridden and I hope to have this motorcycle for a long time.

The RK Custom is sort of a cross between a Softail and a full-fledged Tourer. It has the triple discs and the air adjustable rear suspension of the Tourers but the low center of balance and easier handling of a Heritage Classic. High points--the aggressive looks without all the chrome accents are, to me, refeshing. Also like the streamlined way the trim pieces fit together. I even like the wide bars because they fit my size. Low points--The original seat is stylish but not comfortable for more than 50-75 miles. The floorboards are too small for my size 13 feet. Had to remove the rear shifter for more space. Bags are too small for helmets and you have to buy locks for them ( the bags) from HD--another small but irritating rip-off. No tach or other gauges except speedo and fuel. Overall--Fit and finish are perfect and with the addition of Stage 1 kit and new SE offroad pipes and Sundowner seat, it is nearly done. Handles like a dream on the road and is very capable on mountain terrain--due in part to EFI, which I strongly recommend wherever you live.

I have been riding for over 30 years, and having gotten the "crotch rocket" years safely behind me, set out to finally purchase my Harley. For several years I had made my mind up that when circumstances allowed, I wanted a Fat Boy. But when H-D came out with the Road King Custom, I ended up riding both and the Road King won out, hands down. To me, it handles nicer and is more suited for the long trips I plan to take. I had never owned a "bagger" but quickly realized how useful the saddlebags were. Also, the engine is rubber-mounted which reduces vibration to a minimum. (Shakes a little at idle - but hey, that's what it's supposed to do!) Another advantage over the Fatboy is that the King doesn't have the counterbalancer in the engine (and the resulting noise it produces) The ride is very comfortable and smooth. Brakes are very good - dual discs up front help bring it to a halt with very light lever pressure. The EFI works great, one quick blip of the starter and you're in business. Performance wise, there are faster bikes out there for sure, but has more than enough for a very satisfying ride. The Screamin Eagle pipes and Stage 1 air kit give it a little more power (and it sounds great), but hard to compare as I had installed before taking delivery of bike. At first I wasn't sure if I liked the "beach bars", but after logging a few miles have found them to be comfortable and the resulting riding position quite comfortable. Bottom line is that every time I climb on and take a ride, I confirm that I made the right choice.
