No one was pleased when I showed up on my ratty GS.
I don't doubt that the Pan America will be a great bike but I'll admit I'm a bit dubious on H-D's commitment to the platform after they abandoned the Bronx.
A spent a day riding a Harley Davidson Pan America at a motor company sponsored comparison event. If you thought it was bad, your wrong. If you thought it would be OK, your wrong. If you thought it would be great, your almost there. It is light, comfortable and feels instantly familiar. The ride modes are distinct and easy to use. Sport mode turns it into a rocketship. Huge power. It claims 534 lbs full of fuel. But that cant be true as it feels at leadt 100 pounds lighter. The semi active ride hieght option will lower the bike 2 inches when it comes to a stop. It does that so seamlessly you cant feel it happening. This feature, like everything else on yhr bike is adjustable a thousand diffetent ways. 20 out of 10. Not does it only meadure up to thr competition, it is plainly better. It will be the new benchmark. It is that good. I know. I cant belive it either
If they were looking at it the right way, they should be ecstatic to see a BMW rider checking out their new bike.Youíre the first Iíve read of whoís test-ridden the bike. Good to see it was a positive experience!
I'll freely admit that I have some preconceived notions about H-D as a brand as well. My favorite one was a very unpleasant time trying to get a salesman to give me the time of day when I was looking at buying a brand new iron 1200. My dealership experience with them hasn't been great to this point but the European and Japanese dealers have been much better overall.
Another motorbike that requires the rider to stand on the pegs to ride
I've had good and bad experiences with dealers of all types and brands.I've had Harley dealers who gave me lifetime free state inspections for ALL my rides (Harley or not) and have seen the techs fight over who gets to test ride the Guzzi. I've seen dealers come out and ask me about my Guzzi, or Ducati. I've also seen some who won't look at you or give you the time of day when you're ready to spend.We just bought a Land Rover last year - fu!@%#%^ng worst dealer experience ever. If they'd had taken a piss on the vehicle before handing it over I wouldn't have been surprised. Went to a Lexus dealer just shopping before that, they took our kids to a playroom and BAKED THEM FRESH COOKIES while we test drove a couple of vehicles. You just never know.But the lion's share of my experiences with most brands have been positive. Maybe it's my cheery disposition (I always start out that way at least lol).
Funny you say that, because while watching the marketing video, I noticed that it appears the tank isnít in a prime location to grip with the knees when standing. Curious to see real-world thoughts on that.
I'm glad that HD has developed this bike, they are at least putting out a new bike in an attempt to siphon off sales from the BMW GS. That is more that I can say about Guzzi who just put out a fuzzy photo of some kind of bike that is probably powered by a lump they developed in the 80's.
I've watched riders of large dual sport bikes stand up while riding one of the paved roads in the park where we have the Wild Guzzi rally . No , not a Guzzi rider Dusty
Like Kev said, look for further uses of the new mill. https://www.cycleworld.com/story/motorcycle-news/harley-davidson-to-revive-nightster/
And with HD, itís like children, itís not the initial cost, itís the upkeep.Too rich for my blood.But good on them for taking a leap.
WTF?!?The upkeep?You mean changing oil, filters, and tires?Cause that's all most of my Harleys have ever needed.Most of my Guzzis have been MUCH NEEDIER!
