    Sometimes with you lot I feel the earth has tilted in its axis and / or I’ve stumbled into a loony bin. 
    Poor liberator. All he did was post a photo of his bike (which I liked) and mentioned it didn’t ride all that well. Set of a chain of posts. I hope we see him back.

    Why is it horrible to ride?
    It's a back breaker, maybe I'm just used to plush riding Electra Glides, also, those skinny 21 inch front wheels track all over the place, I bought it because of the motor, it's not a twin cam,

    It looks like a Twin Cam, is it an Evo in disguise?

    "those skinny 21 inch front wheels track all over the place"
    Those skinny 21 inch front wheels are a terrible match with fat rear wheels I agree 100%. You can lace up a wider rim on the front and then use a 120 or 130mm wide trye. That improves the handling lots.
    The skinny 21 inch wheels are actually not too bad at all when matched to a skinny back wheel like a 130 wide number.

    Yes, that's exactly the combo on my WG - 21"/90 front with 16"/130 rear, handles well enough.

    Same on my shovel wideglide, it handles like a charm.
    My 2008 FXST came out with 21/90 front and 17/200 rear and it handled like a mad woman's breakfast. A wider front helped. Got a sneaking suspicion that regular twin shocks work better than the softail underslung units do too.
