    Hi all.

    I joined Canberra Riders back in 2010 and came to coffee a few times/went on a few rides. I had a 2011 Suzuki Boulevard M109RZ (orange and black) at the time but ultimately moved to Adelaide for family reasons... Came back to the best city in the country in Nov last year.

    A few months back I picked up a new 2015 Harley Davidson Breakout which I am loving. Looking forward to a few feet forward rides!

    Not sure of the general consensus here on HD riders so that will be interesting... A few pros and cons that I have discovered in my brief time on a Harley (although no huge surprises);

    Pro
    Great low range torque that always brings a smile
    Comfortable cruising
    Looks sexy AF
    Sounds sexy AF
    Unrivalled aftermarket opportunities

    Cons
    You get stereotyped with every other person that rides a Harley
    Nods from fellow riders are rare
    Footpegs scrape often
    My neighbours hate me (apartment complex + loud pipes. Sorry/Not sorry)

    Harleys are fine. We mainly give Nate shit about his fuel range :lol

    It depends really, what type of stereo does your Harley have?

    There was a chap pulled into ONA today on his bagger with the stereo blasting - not the best look :107.gif:
