    There's plenty to do, plenty to see, lots of stunt shows etc. Wandering round everything noke related, sounds like an ok day to me.

    Depends if you are into bikes and all they encompass I suppose.
    To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world

    I went yesterday and it’s nice to look around and sit on the bikes. Some nice stuff on the BHS stand. Can’t say I am a fan of the new fat bob styling though. Maybe it’s a grower . Used to be good for a bargain but now it’s just cheaper to get stuff from ebay.

    I like the new Fat Bob, it fills the void in H-D's portfolio that was left after the loss of the V-Rod.

    Harley-Davidson needs a 'Muscle Bike' on it's sales floor's, and to my mind the new Fat Bob looks like a Harley M-8 on steroids, I like the aggressively styled exhaust. The 2018 Fat Bob is the most un-Harley looking bike in the current lineup. The only thing I think Harley over looked with the new Fat Bob is not upgrading the indicators to LED's, after all it has a new LED headlight and tail light, why on earth did they fit incandescent bulbs in the indicators?

    I suppose only Harley-Davidson can answer that.

    It seems to be a bit of a marmite bike. As long as It sells and keeps the moco vibrant and relevant it does really matter. I agree HD needs a muscle bike, I just cant take to it. I prefer the deluxe

    Glad you liked it. In all honesty though, I was bike daft since a kid, any bike got my attention. Now the only thing that catches my attention is Harleys, especially sportsters. Probably the motorcycle equivalent of love at first sight.
