My name is Mike
Sunny S. Calif. where some great roads are.
Very seriously looking into a Fury, love the look.
52 years old and riding since school, so too many bikes to list, first bike was a Kawasaki 175, second one was a Suzuki GT550, a 2-stroke triple that I put 88,000 miles on that is a lot for a 2-stroke, back to Kawa, then my Yamaha phase with 2 Yamies and my last bike was a Victory Vegas, would still own that and be happy with it but a socder mom had other ideas, was looking at getting another Vic this month...waiting to learn more about the Fury. All my dirt bikes have been Honda's for some reason, had many of those.

Any place the road is if on a street bike and if on a dirt bike, anyplace the dirt is.

My name is Chuck from Sedalia, Mo. age 54 been riding since I was 19. First bike was a 175 Kawasaki which I rode to the Ozark Music rock festival summer of 1974. Currently riding a 2000 Valkyrie Tourer which I purchased new. I am the Mo State Rep for the VRCC(Valkyrie Riders Cruiser Club). I am very interested in the new Fury and will be anxious to see the real thing. The Valkyrie is still going strong but Im thinking about something else in the near future. I would like to hear from someone after they get one to hear their thoughts.

My name is Dave, I am 34 years old and live in Little Rock, Arkansas. A couple of friends gave me the nickname of T-Rexx, not for anything really cool, it was because I had a big head and short arms. My first bike was an 85 Honda interceptor, followed by an 02 R6, and a 94 VTX 1100. Now I just have to wait until April to get on the fury. Although I do not really care for Arkansas, there are some nice roads here.

One of the best rides I have been on is a set of roads called the snake in eastern Tennessee. The ride through the mountains there is increadible. I hope to find some better ones when I head to New York this summer.

Hello, my name is Ron at 37 y/o, and I live in Eastern Connecticut with some of the most twisty and scenic roads throughout the New England countryside. I don't own a Fury and am I'm not interested in buying one any time soon but I am curious in what is has to offer. You see, I currently own a Star Roadliner S fixed up to include all the features of a Stratoliner plus some additional goodies. I believe this is truly the best bike for me because I like to ride great distances with my lady on the back and I want power and comfort. I know I'm not going to get that with a Fury, it’s targeting a different type of rider, but that does not mean I cannot appreciate the model. The power of my 113 ci v-twin, aluminum frame which immensely aids the handling characteristics has me in absolute love with my bike so don’t even try to convince me differently. I have owned a HD Dyna Wide Glide and RS Warrior before the Liner and all I can say they have all been like former girlfriends. You love them dearly at the moment in time in which they fall into your life and you love each for their own uniqueness. Why am I here? One day I plan to win Powerball and be able to afford multiple bikes. My brother in law has also always owed Hondas from Shadows to now a VTX 1300 and I can say without a doubt they have been impressive. After owning the HD then switching to metrics I can say I am definitely a self proclaimed Metric cruiser guy. Anything whether bike model, accessories, rides or rallies that helps bolster the metric market should be supported because there are countless folks that will take the marketing hype of other brands a bit too seriously.

Hi to all
My name is paul and i live in South Jersey

I was at the New York show when the bike was unvaled and got to sit on it. That was all it took. I currently have a red one on order. I am 52 and usually ride with my friends who all own Bourgets. With the fury i will no longer feel out of place.

Hi everybody, my name is Steve. Slick is a nickname that was given to me by some friends years ago. I am a 16 year old kid trapped inside a 55 year old man's body. I live in a small town 35 miles south of St.louis. I love riding the back roads here. They are paved, relatively smooth, hilly, curvy, scienic, have very little traffic and seem to go on forever. I avoid these roads after dark, because of wildlife, and then prefer to ride in town.
Bikes I've owned: Honda-CB160, CB175, 450,1100 Shadow, 1800 VTX. Suzuki-800 and 1500 Intruders. Yamaha-650 Maxim,1000 Varago, 1300 Royal Star, 1600 Road Star, 1900 Raider S (I own now). Harley-1000 Sportster, 1550 Screamin Eagle Deuce, 1550 Wide Glide. Choppers-650 Triumph, 100 cu.in.BMC (Big Mikes Choppers) Having been fortunate enough to own all these bikes I've been able to come to some sobering conclusions. 1 I may be kind of fickled. 2 Price has little or no determination on how much I will like a bike. Who would think an old school 650 Triumph chopper, built in some guy's garage,($550.00 used) would be a better bike than a new factory built $25,000.00 custom chopper. Or a $14,000.00 Yamaha Raider would out perform in every aspect a $32,000.00 hand assembled Harley CVO bike. Go figure. I now have an 08 Raider which I thought I would be riding for many years to come. This bike does everything well and the SMOOTH power and torque are remarkable. So why would I think about buying a Fury? The Fury has some of the cleanest lines I have ever seen on a production motorcycle. At this point I have invested about $2,000.00 in customizing my Raider. The list of other mods I want would run about another $4,000.00. I was about to start ordering some of these items when I came accross pics of the Fury. WAIT A MINUTE! MAYBY I NEED TO RETHINK THIS! Did I mention I may be somewhat fickled? While the Raider is an awesome bike, it does have broke up styling. It also has a lot of clutter(hoses,tubes and wires exposed) The Raider actually has more rake than the Fury(almost 40`rake on the Raider) but because of trail,frame geometry and triple tree design it dosent look nearly as chopperesqe as the Fury. I have allready seen some Fury bashing on other websights. I will never understand this. Some say the motor is to small, I have never ridden a 1300 VTX, but I believe it should be fine in this type of bike. Some don't like the radiator, I think Honda did an exellent job incorperating it between the down tubes and hiding the upper hose. The bike will not over heat in traffic on a hot day and the engine should outlast an air cooled engine. Some people don't like shaft drive, I fall into this catagory. While I prefer belt drive I have had shaft driven motorcycles and was able to drive them with very little back-lashing. Also I have to admit the shaft drive on the Fury looks better than belt guards on my Raider. My only major concern with the Fury is the 3.4 gal. gas tank. Unless this bike gets 40 to 50 mpg refueling will be frequent. I have'nt been able to see a Fury in the flesh yet, but if it's what I think it is I very well may trade my Raider(hands down the best bike I've ever owned) for one. I would probably extend the forward controlls 2 or 3 in.,taller drag bars(I like my arms parallel to the ground),exhaust, side mount lience plate, mini bullet turn signals, braided cables, maybe flames over factory paint. I recently stoped at a local dealership to ask when the Furys would arrive and see about a possible trade in for my Raider and found out they wanted $14,125.00 for a blue Fury that lists for $12,999.00. Honda has tried to keep the price some-what reasonable and the dealership tries to screw you. So now I will never buy anything from that dealership. TOO GREEDY. If I like the Furys 'in person'
and can get one for list, I will probably buy one. I've always had a thing for big breasted women and choppers. Other-wise I'll just have to keep riding my Raider(the best bike I've ever owned)
