    Last Sunday went to Glendale Harley-Davidson to purchase a 2019 black Softail Deluxe. It is frustrating because the parts and the work being done takes time.

    Beautiful bike.
    The only changes I’d make would be to lose the front fender for something smaller, and extend the front end by 4”-6”
    I Also love the slight pullback bars
    Congrats

    80% of Harleys ever made are still on the road. The rest made it home in one piece! :lol:

    God owns a Harley but he rides a Triumph!:lol:

    I'll be here all week, I got a million of 'em!:lol:

    Congrats, enjoy the righteous ride.

    Congrats.
    And yes, parts stuff takes time, but the alternative is a bike that may not sound like a Harley should.
    Grew up with a father who liked sports bikes and a neighbor with a Harley. Never could touch the ground on my dads VFR 750 interceptor, but neighbors Harley had no such issues.

    Happy riding.

    Only ones not still on the road got totaled by Evil Knievel...

    CONGRATS!!SAFE. I rode HDs for 15 years... Now im on a BMW. When I first got my BMW I still had some Harley for pregs that for perfectly on my bike but I needed a 1/2" bolt. Stopped by a local unaffiliated Harley shop for the bolts. He asked what bike I had and of course I said BMW. he said we don't have BMW parts! I said it's a half inch bolt!...."nope don't have BMW parts! He closed not long after that. I wonder why? That side of HD culture is really childish.

    Nice bike. Congrats! Never let your guard down while riding.

    I rode Harleys for a good number of years - very enjoyable. Decided not to ride anymore, a while back. It's all good.

    My last Harley was a 2010 Black Denim Road Glide... and glide it did down the road!

    Great lookin' scooter

    It's been more than 25 years since my 2 wheeler was hit from behind (while I was still on it) but I've kept the unlimited endorsement on my licence. Just in case...
    Shiny side up.
    Peace - Deeve

    Great bike! Congratulations (and be careful out there).

    Nothing wrong with a Triumph...
