WELCOME...

Now quit wasting time, looking for the bad...the only bad for me so far is the added attention you'll receive when you ride!!! I lurked for awhile myself then dropped the hammer...lost a month of riding because I waited and waited and waited...JK Do whats best for you, but I can tell you that I Love my Fury

The good is, it's a unique, nice looking bike that will turn heads and it's a blast to ride.

The bad is, it doesn't do so well in the snow and ice.

The ugly is, it makes most other bikes look ugly.

It's all bad , to much attention , all those stares can be awkward , people walk by Harley's and ask u all about her , especially the women , u will always be late getting where Ur going its not good.

as i expected no one dissing the bike - i love the look - wish there were more color choices - so far the bright blue is my first choice - burnt orange/rust?? second - nothing else is appealing - but i ride a freakin purple bike with flames so my standards are a little different, right?

also aftermarket exhaust - who has one what kind what results? - my 750 has Cobra Striaightshots? no baffles - i love the sound of the v-twin un restricted. I have heard a Fury with Bubs pipes probably with baffles not quite the signature sound i am looking for.

I run cobras with the baffles in. Sounds great not too loud, Sounds great cruising and has plenty of bark if you twist that throttle. I am running a Dyno FC V to accommodate the change in pipes.

I ride with some Harley guys...They say it sounds like an appache coming down the road!
