For reference, I also presently own and ride a 2001 BMW R1150GS, 2001 GL1800 Gold Wing. I stopped by the Harley store to test ride a new Buell. (Too small but I liked the motor). Anyway there in the showroom next to all the bright and shiney bikes sat a 2004, gray and black, Super Glide Sport FXDXI. Instead of being extra low and covered in chrome it offered increased clearance, adjustable compression and rebound dampening shocks and forks, and dual discs. And it was fuel injected. And it was on sale, sort of! I went back the next day to pick it up. I hadn't ridden a Harley since my last one, a 1981 FXEF which I didn't like very much. I was hoping this one would be much improved. It is in all respects. The finish work, which means a lot to me, is Harley which is as good as it gets. It started instantly, and settled into that distinctive, irregular, HD idle. Pulling away I had to make a hard left and was ready to "herd" it around. Suprise, it was effortless. Give it a slight throttle and short shift to second, wow. Light, smooth shift and no fuel injection surging. BMW should take note! Out on the highway, loping along in fifth at 65 mph, listening to the wonderful exhaust note, all was well. I knew then I was going to like this motorcycle! Now, 900 miles later I like it even more. It handles well. Not quite like the BMW GS but neutral and very good in its own way. Even riding briskly there is enough cornering clearance. The brakes require more effort than either the Gold Wing or BMW but they work just fine. For me there was one problem with this bike, the seat. It was too soft, too low, too dished, and too far forward. A Corbin Solo Saddle fixed all four of the above. Highly recommended. For longer trips or when riding in cold weather I bought the H-D detachable, standard height windshield, with cut-outs for passing lights. For me even it was too tall so I cut 1 1/2" off. Much better. Understanding the newer Harley airboxes are set up a little restricted, I installed a Screamin Eagle kit which allows it to breath better. Riding it over to the dealership to have the FI re-mapped (required with this kit) I noticed it was running worse than before. After the $149 re-map download, it now runs better than ever. I'm pleased with this easy upgrade. My next purchase will likely be passing lamps and detachable saddlebags. Probably Boss Bags. That'll be it. No, I didn't forget the pipes, I'm not putting any on! The stock ones sound great to me and more importantly, others.

I was undecided between the soft tail standard and the Sport. I checked out all of the Japanese cruisers as well. After a piece of plastic fell off the Yamaha, my son & I looked at each other & said, "Let's get outta here",(most metric cruisers priced close to HD). I know I made an excellent choice with the Dyna Sport. It's a really fun bike to ride and handles well. I hadn't ridden in 18 years. My first was a '78 Sporty kick start and my last was an FLH full dresser. All the good memories came back with this bike. I was reluctant to plunk down the cash & get back in the saddle, but my son urged me to buy a Harley and have some fun. I'm glad I did! This bike handles great in turns, breaking is excellent, and it looks great (I'm too lazy/old to polish a whole lotta chrome). I got the Oakland Raiders colors, silver with the black wrinkle. I put 500 miles since picking it up on July 2nd. The seat is very comfortable thus far, but not meant for a passenger. I love this bike and find myself making repeat trips to my garage just to admire it. The rubber mounted engine is great in that it keeps that rumble and thumping without wearing on you. The paint(metallic silver)and finish is excellent. Great Job Harley Davidson!!!
