Found this on Youtube. I thought everybody may wanna check it out.
I put up that video about a month ago on this forum, maybe less... shitty arse video... crappy comparison... No worries, we've already seen it...

This was the first time i was seeing it, and i find it very informative for someone like myself that is in the cuspe of buying the Fury. I apprecaited that he said that the shift, ride and over all quality ARE better then the HD. Thats what i was looking for, and i think that those here that are new to the sport may appreciate that aspect.

As far as the gawking of the HD .. yeah so? I can appreciate most anything that is eye catching, regardless of who made it.

Yes, I agree with you that he points out the positives on this bike, but... No, that is not what the problem is of this video, besides the flattering comments for the Fury, you can tell that he is totally biased towards the HD and basically scoffs it up... if you are able to dissect the video and take most of his biased comments out of the video... it doesn't leave much to be desired. Basically, if you're going to do a vs. video and expect some sort of validity to it, try and be biased is all I am saying...

Well, first time I have seen it, ROTFLOL. Some people would rather have a bike that doesn't handle as well or as smoothly or is not balanced as well and needs a tool kit? I guess I should just buy a harley with my googlie eyes and a tool kit, Wait a minuet, I like the looks of the Fury better, and yes perfection, and balance and no tool kit! OH and 4270 pounds cheaper. YEP!!!!

There is a tool kit... but... might as well take it out cause you probably will never use it... :p Cept on the broken down Harley's you help out... but, metric is metric... ;)

I was one of those considering a Rocker C before I bought my fury last year. It is obvious which way I went. The rocker was weak, uncomfortable (tranny was in my left calf) and severly overpriced. After my test ride I sat on a new black Fury they just put in the showroom and ended up getting a black cherry one (excuse me burgundy)

Seen it, saw it, didnt like the comparisson, Looked at the Harley in person the Rocker C i saw was 22k, my fury was 11400 out the door. The harley has more of a nostalgic look. reminds me of the panheads. For initial cost, reliability and sleaker lines on a chopperish bike the way to go is probably honda, even though Harley has done alot of work to building up their reliability. For cheaper, more availible parts and nostalgia the Harley is probably the way to go.

I thought the tool kit was for helping out the Harley guys!:confused: Sorry I don't knock anybody, if you want a harley, fine, your paying for it, want Fury, fine, you paying for it. In the end, does it really matter? Hell NO! Get what you want, Ill get what I want, Just wave and say HI! Just don't do Shity biased reviews. Journalism at it's worst!

This is the new standard for cruisers... the fury is so clean and drives so good and looks great the only reason the HD gets the looks because of the HD, true enthusiast love the fury because it's a great bike... Put the two side by side and the HD looks real old and I wonder why doesn't HD do this or that like Honda did... They still sound great though...

I finally drove a Fury and bought it the same day and I have been looking for a new street bike for about 2 years.... The final facor was uniqueness, the only Fury I have seen on the street has been mine... I love that just like when I got the first Busa everyone had to look at it.... I live in WI so everyone has a HD... So I'm an outsider.... I don't get a bike to fit in....

I kinda want to think vance and Haynes has them.... not positive, but i like more of the straight pipe look on this bike if anything with decorative bends. Kinda the way the ROad house, sampson, cobra and Mine look

Nice Bikes

I can honestly say that I've looked at several bikes over the years. HD's Rocker C is a very nice looking bike and HD has come a long way over that last few years for quality too. In that same vein Victory's Vegas Jackpot & Hammer are killer bikes with no reliability issues. Big Dog choppers are another incredibly good looking ride and for the most part are fairly reliable. However, you can't touch any of those bikes for less than $20K new.

I simply don't believe you can honestly compare the Fury to those bikes for that reason. The person purchasing one of those and looking at a Fury is the exception not the rule. You got the cash you use it.

I love my Fury because it gives me that unique chopper look, combined with Honda engineering, reliability, and a price that I can afford. I'm guessing most everyone who owns one will say the same thing. I don't think there is a comparable bike right now to the Fury. Perhaps Yamaha or Suzuki or Kawasaki will come up with something but right now I say the Cheese stands alone. ;)

I just wish the HD owners didn't get free asshole attitudes with the purchase of their bikes. The things aren't even all american like they were pre bankruptcy years ago. Research where half the connectors and nuts and bolts come from. I think the Big Dogs are good looking bikes too but they are on the verge of going out of business or selling out, Harley killed Buell already and looks like the owner of Audi will be buying them (that would help their reliability issues)

Someone in this thread stated the rocker he saw was 20K if memory serves the one I tested was right around that, I think 19500.00. I have around 30k in my Fury now and attended a candlelight vigil for a fallen rider this week on Tue and the Harley guys actually gave me props and loved the Fury.

I do plan to add a 3rd bike to my stable so I have all 3 major styles and yes I looked at the Street king or road king or whatever but once again in the bagger class the Yamaha Stratoliner Deluxe is getting my knod.

To me the Fury is the bike I want to ride, not look at or fix every weekend.
I have a home built chopper and I love it but I have only ridden it once since I got the Fury. The Fury just blows everything else away as a bike to ride. Everything is super smooth and balanced. Then again we all know this, that's why we got a Fury in the first place.

i've had mine for almost a year,5th bike i've owned and i'm still amazed when i walk out of a store and some stranger walks up and tells me how good the bike looks, at least 10-15 times since i bought it! maybe twice combined with the other bikes. i'm not faulting the rocker, actually almost bought it, just got hooked on this one

In the video I noticed the Fury was described as "Easy to ride". I inferred that it was easier to ride than the HD. The first thing I noticed about the Fury was that it is "easier" to ride than my ST1300 but I haven't spent enough time on enough bikes to compare it to other V-twins. Anyone have opinions on "easy to ride"?
