I own the Muscle variant, 2011. A lot of fun to ride, comfortable, did Perth to Melbourne in three days. Has a relaxed seating position for me (6'2", 100+kg).
They don't turn the best, thanks to the 240 rear tyre, and if you add the Vance and Hines full exhaust, lean angle to the right is laughable.
Burleigh Fat Bars (don't make them anymore, well worth trying to source though).
Vance and Hines full exhaust
Cams (would not recommend, they make the engine even more of a top end screamer).
60mm throttle bodies
Larger fuel jets...
Purchased in for $20,000.

2016 matte grey. Dropped a Akro titanium exhaust on it. Race filter. Had it tuned. Few aesthetic mods. Such a joy to ride. I come from riding sports bikes where my wrists would hurt after an hour, I can ride this thing all day. You can throw it into the corners, it's fun but it'll never handle like a sports bike. It's not bad off the mark and sounds mean. Would say I'm surprised with the build quality of the Harleys, it's better than I thought after coming from the japanese bikes

This bike is exhilarating. It's so fast, you have to hang on tight or die. 220km on the straight, burns rubber like a pro dragster, sticks like glue to the road. What more could you ask for? Get rid of the [censored word removed] Dunlop tyres and you've got the best performance bike Harley will ever make. I have found that Pirelli tyres (Night Dragons) really are the most suitable for cornering and sticking on the road. Costs a bit more but how much is your life worth? Servicing costs no more than any other bike.
Performance, reliability - twice melbourne to Qld without missing a beat.
Poor cornering if tyres are not good quality.
