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.

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!
