    That finish that has replaced the chrome is really bloody nice. Shame Crop-duster you've had bad experiences with your dealer. At HH Adelaide only had excellent service from day 1. Could not complain at all. Now that Fatboy......mmmm wonder if the Wife would notice?

     

    Oh well, could be worse i guess, thanks mate.

    Saw the new FatBoy at M&W today in white and it looks really good in person, wow it stands out, i was having a good nosey over it when the sales guy came over for a chat, i'll be test riding it while mine gets a service i think...

    Sold my 2012 FatBoy last week with stage 4 etc etc
    Purchased the new 2018 Fatboy with 114 in the industrial grey , not much at all I dont like about it , and is far out weighed by what I do ,,, rides well  .
    In the process of starting some custom upgrades etc 1 3/4 bars by Burleigh , heavy industry grips and mirrors etc 
    Has anyone done braided lines on one of these bikes yet with the 2 piece cables , they are a different set up to previous years and costing me a packet with Harley lines ??
    Searching for an alternative .
    Was looking at the   2 Brothers pipes but not decided yet ,, want to take my time with the performance upgrades and enjoy the stock 114 for a while .
    BTW the biggest improvement with these bikes is the new frame and suspension rear and front . completely different ride and handling to previous years .
    Gave the Breakout a thrashing the other day and is a completely different bike to last years model as agreed by a few others who have one and have test ridden the new one  .
    Main down point on Breakout for me residing in Perth atm is the 13.9 tank wont get far if your pushing a 114 on a country run or across the big paddock to east .

     Nice one ballistic, thanks for the report.  Im very jealous.  Intend on taking the 2018 for a spin as soon as time allows.  Sounds like you are happy with your new ride.  looking forward to some more first hand reports on how the bike goes.

    Most likely remove the boards off my 2018 Fatboy and go with forward controls pegs in the next few weeks 
    I was having a close look at the Breakout controls and reckon they will bolt straight on ,,anyone have any info on if someone has done this yet or if there are any issues with it .
    Dealers don't seem to have been given a lot of info on the smaller changes to these new models and seem like they are playing catch up which is not fair on them or us by Harley.
    Reckon I will wait a fair while before undertaking any performance mods .

    My local dealer threw me the keys straight up - It was very light, well balanced and pulled like a freight train. Pretty comfortable for a 6'4'' guy out of the box too.
    Great looking bike in person and my pick out of the 114 breakout and 114 fatbob. The 34k price tag for the 114 put me off though...
