A couple of years ago when I hung out on the Big Dog Forums, Honda came out with the Fury. Everyone was talking about how Honda was going after the custom bike market. I've see 2 Fury's in 2 years.

Bottom line (for me), Harley people are Harley people and we're not going to buy a Honda or Victory, or Yamaharley.

Just my 1/2 cent!
I mostly agree with you. As to the twisties... it's way more about the rider than the ride.

I have never seen a Fury outside of a showroom floor or the interwebs. I think it is a fugazi, a cheap knock-off.

I've owned 2 Wings -- loved em but cld not get my knee comfortable. IMHO, Honda is feeling the "pinch" from moving the factory out of Ohio to Japan. They r looking for new ways to stay in the market -- I don't think this will help. DOOF

Not a bad looking bike. Certainly no match for a Glide, but good looking for a more sporty/metric type bike.

I like it. Honda makes nice bikes. Don't ever see myself on one, but I dig it.

rode a VTX1800 for 9 years, but they had nothing for me when i was ready for a vtwin touring bike, and they still have nothing. heck it don't have any wind protection to speak of either.

Wind protection?
We don't need no wind protection.
We don't need no steenking wind protection!

The thing I love about the FLTRX is that it's perfect the way it is. Adding a big barn door just ruins Everything, looks AND comfort.

JOIBO!
