    It's been really wet up here for most of the last fortnight. It sucks.

    Ok so I've been out a couple of time between the rain showers and all is good, my only "concern" is the amount of vibration up through the bars, I'm guessing this is a Harley 'feature' rather than a problem?
    Is there anything I can do to reduce it though?

    Otherwise I do love the bike 👍🏻🏍

    Is it the vibration at idle or running? My streetbob vibrates at both to the extent that all objects are blurry in the mirrors due to it..

    To me it's a Harley feature...

    All Harleys do it. With the onset of rubber mounting the engines HD reduced the vibration greatly. You will get used to it, I changed the handlebar grips to thicker ones, not to reduce the vibration, just because I liked the style, but it has reduced the vibration. You could also get gloves that are well padded which will help, hardly worth bothering about it as you soon forget about it. I agree with Dod, it's a characteristic and Harleys have loads of character.
