    God you have to laugh really dont you......Harley are so excited to peddle this "new technology" The rest of the bike / trike world are 14 steps further up the road with their technology and rapidly moving ahead.
    Give em a break, they couldn't even get their signage right - the sign is for "Milwaukee Eight 107" but the new ones are 114, he even says 114 in his spiel.

    On my second trip to Canada we hired a trike for the hell of it.  It was a 107 and we did @ 2400kms on it through the rockies.  It was very different.  Great in a straight line but hard in the twisties as they turn flat and the steering fights you all the way in and out.  It certainly gives you an arm workout.  Thought it would have had more storage than the Ultra we hired 2 years before but the trike didn't have a rack on the top box.  Packing the boot was a work of art!  It was fun but personally I wouldn't be rushing out to buy one.

    I agree!
    think Harley just put a trike rear on a motor bike, trikes better with leading link front, or lot of rake with a springer.
    I road one trike with stock HD front stock  rake and hit a bump & try's to wrench steering to one side. ok if they have a good steering damper. but leading link or springer with lot of rake solves the problem.

    Probably why this is the only model of HD I know of with a steering dampener.
