A long-time H-D admirer, I finally found myself in a position to be able to purchase one, after riding Metrics for 35-plus years. Deciding on just THE one took HOURS o looking, listening, talking, reading. I decided the softails had 'the look' I wanted...clean and lean, agressive, stylish but yet ageless... As I studied, I found myself looking at the Deuce more and more. I zeroed in on a 2007, liking the lowered stance, the larger engine, and the extra gear. WOW! What a bike! The torque of the larger motor is astounding, even with two up here in the mountains. The ride is a delight, with little or no change with a passenger. And the looks? Bike enthusiasts and passerby alike, even senior citizens, find themselves staring into the Black Pearl paint and chrome, as if moths drawn to a flame. Not a ride goes by without someone telling me how much they like it. It is everything I could hope for in a motorcycle! Thank you H-D, for building "The Deuce"! (and yeah, the gearbox COULD be less 'clunky'!)

I have owned and ridden a '07 Deuce since early May. I am very impressed by the overall performance of this Harley model in terms of power, handling and comfort. I live in an area where there are many beautiful mountain roadways complete with curves and stretches of open road ahead. The Deuce rides smoothly and comfortably and handles like a dream when cornering or traversing less than ideal roadways. With two-up I hardly notice the added weight due to the sheer raw power and torque from the new 96 cubic inch engine under me. The new 6 speed tranny also shifts effortlessly and I have experienced no clunks or hard shifts at any time with mine. Someone mentioned hearing a 5th gear noise that I have yet to hear also. Suffice to say I am extremely pleased with this, my second Harley. My first was a 1200 Sporty but it wasn't even in the same league as the Deuce in terms of comfort and overall performance. The Deuce is sadly no longer in Harley's lineup and will no doubt become a much sought after model in a very short time. The dealer I purchased mine from has had several customers wanting Deuces but there are no more available and no more coming. I plan on installing a 180mm rear tire and changing out the rear wheel for a chromed one early next spring in time for riding season just to put a bit more tire on the road and to further compliment the rear look. Although there are many other very fine bikes on the market the '07 Deuce is certainly one of them in my opinion. To those that have never ridden one, do so whenever the opportunity is provided. But be aware, you will probably find yourself wishing you had bought one when they were available. By the way, the '07 Deuce is the only Deuce with the 96 inch engine and the new 6 speed tranny so that alone makes it a possible collector bike in the years to come.

Lost my '02 Deuce to Hurricane Katrina, and replaced it with an '07 Deuce. The '07 is an inch lower than the '02 giving it a better look when parked. I enhanced this look by replacing the stock 160 rear tire with a 180. Although the '07 is lower, the ride is just as comfortable as the '02, and the bike is just as nimble. The 96 inch engine gives a noticeable boost in power and acceleration. I initially noticed two problems with the '07. First the '07 runs hotter than the '02 in stop and go traffic, and secondly there is some 5th gear tranny noise with the '07 that didn't exist with the '02. I solved the heat problem with a remap and the addition of Vance & Hines Big Radius Pipes. I have found that the 5th gear tranny noise is muted by the new pipes, and is completely avoided if you stay in 4th until approximately 58 mph. As 5th gear will take you to 70 mph, I've only had to use the 6th gear a couple of times. When I did it was simply awesome. Unlike my '02, my '07 is fuel injected. What a difference. I just start and go. Unlike the '02, the '07 has two trip meters. I can use one for each new trip, and the other to keep track of mileage between visits to the gas station.

I've been riding a Ninja 500 for the past couple of years. But I always wanted a cruiser, and everybody knows the real cruisers are Harleys. It's a whole different approach to a motorcycle, though. Took me about a month to get used to the weight and handling. But this is a great highway bike that eats up the miles effortlessly. Not as fast or nimble as a sport bike, but that's something that needs to be understood up front. I love the looks and the comfortable riding position. Mine has EFI and it runs smooth even right after the first start-up in the morning. No problems had no complaints.
