    So, they dropped the Dyna line. I guess I have a collector's item. Millennials will love that the new line looks like a Honda. The new Lowrider is actually a Softail

    I'm not a millennial but these pictures don't do the bike justice from seeing it in person. Rode the 114 and I guarantee you that you would have better words to say about how it rides and handles. Let's not forget the almost 1800cc's between your legs...

    Realistically, hard tails being a thing of the past might be a better reason to hold onto mine. :dunno:

    uh...you have a sportster...that's not a hardtail. unless you have a bike i'm forgetting about.

    as far as them dropping the dyna, i'm super pissed, as that will be my second bike at some point. So...the M8 engines are some great tech, but Softails handle like shit. i *highly* doubt they made the new softail handle as good as the dynas.

    That they kept the dyna models and tried to make them softails is just bullshit. their "Facebook Live" style reveals with mediocre models and d-list celebs going all fanboy-girl was the icing on the cake. I need to go buy the Lowrider S that's been languishing at my dealership now.

    Also: 114cu in = 1868cc. you are bad at math. :D

    To be fair I calculated the 107 and not the 114, you asshole... :lol:

    Anyone that is in business for themselves can not suck at math... :Duh:

    Hard tail??

    I have seen it in person, I am just not fond of the looks.

    I am sure it runs and handles great.
