Update on my 2007 Wide Glide...it was white gold pearl...now it is Harley (from their color shop) black on black flame.......it now has over 27,000 miles and still runs perfect. I've done regular maintenance and haven't had one problem. Not one. I still love the way the bike handles and cruises...did a 850 mile day last summer (hit rain and dust storms going out and down pour rain for the last 100 miles coming back) and it wasn't bad comfort wise. Riding to work 33 miles one way most days this winter (dry winter) at temps down to 13 degrees...like always the bike ran great. I got caught in a snow storm one afternoon going home...had to follow the car tires ruts and the bike didn't too do bad. Yeah I looked like a idiot (was an idiot with the four wheel drive with heated seats sitting in the garage) Great bike...really!!
I purchased the 2007 White Gold Pearl Wide Glide a year ago (I was having the salesperson write up a Night Train I had thought about for months when I saw it and changed my mind in 15 minutes after sitting on it and taking a close look at the front end)...13500 miles later I know I made the right choice. No problems and I can ride all day long with ease - not to say the Night Train wouldn't have been a great bike too - just not as much leg room. I took the trip to Sturgis this year which was about 550 miles in one day - not that far but I felt like I could have gone twice as far as I still felt fresh (no windshield - Sidewinder seat). Nice riding postion (I'm 6'2" - 210lb), good looks, handles good (very light steering - minimal effort), good brake feel, runs great (stage one, se ac,V&H Big Radius, Cobra F2000R digital fuel processor - and a wide tire kit). This is my 7th motorcycle (2nd Harley - all bikes 1000cc or more - 2 sport bikes and 1 Goldwing and the rest tour/cruisers) and the Wide Glide fits me to a tee; good for around town but equally as good for taking longer trips - I would have no problem going anywhere the road takes me on this bike - just throw on a bag or two and go. The engine starts and runs like a champ and so far hasn't used a drop of oil - I get comments on the blinding chrome all the time; I couldn't be happier - great bike.
Having originally placed an order for a heritage softail classic, I finally chaged my mind and took delivery of a black/silver anniversary Wide Glide on April 18th and what a brilliant decision it has turned out to be. Definately a younger mans motorcycle than the stock heritage (I'm not 40 yet!) and despite the popular misconceptions, the light front end, means that it corners very well, only limited by ground clearance. Various pillions with experience of japanese cruisers always comment on how smooth and comfortable she is! I've covered just over 4000 trouble free miles so far, without going anywahere of note, and will take the first overseas trip next year. Had a full stage 1 and dynojet done and screamin Eagles before delivery and with a few extra goodies, I couldn't have made a better choice. In terms of performance it exceeds the speed limit with ease (Off road of course) and the limit of grip (without removable screen) is exceeded before performace of the bike. With service loaners etc I have now ridden a softail - also nice and a V-rod - Very different, but wouldn't swap this for anything - Absolutely the right choice for me. I hope this helps anyone looking for objective information, as I found comparisons between Harleys difficult to obtain before making the decision.
The new 2001 bike is a revolution not only in transport but style, comfort handling and agility. The new Wide Glide features a newly designed seat and backrest for extra comfort. It has a new, more accurate, anti-fog fuel gauges and an improved turn signal cancellation (for those last minute decisions). The fuse panel is even easier to get to than on the last model and there is even an optional factory Harley-Davidson security system. With a newly designed less effort shifting system that makes that ride much more enjoyable Harley-Davidson have created a BEAST of a machine. The choice of colours is almost endless, from diamond ice pearl, to vivid black, the one you choose really personalises the bike. The handling is as easy and comfortable as it gets and the feel of power underneath you the way the " Twin Cam 88" pumps in the fuel as fast as you can twist that throttle is absolutely astonishing. In retrospect, however, the bike was, is and will never be as good as the "Fatboy" but then it isn't meant to be.
