Switchback

I've just taken delivery of a lovely red switchback and I must say what a diamond! Having had a streetbob then an ultra classic the switchback is so light and a pleasure to ride.

I rode one up at Sturgis this year, it's a fine bike. Weighs about what a '59 panhead weighed and handles wonderfully. Great choice.

I think the Switchback might be one of the smartest decisions Harley has made lately. Guess time will tell.

dynageno is reading this now saying WTF is this?
If the MoCo can just figure out the vibration problem lots of people are having. It is a nice bike!

randayn wants to know Dino or Syn?
I LIKE the concept and the look. It is after all what most of us do with our bikes. Detachable touring and function additions. I had a few Convertibles FXR and DYNA, Great bikes and handled like a dream. Had RK and SG and they just seemed too big. Even the ST was a bit bulky.
My question for you is, how does the SB handle compared to the dresser? The floor boards seem pretty low and the front forks are not raked as the FL. How is the bike at slow speed around town?
I would like to see this bike with a solo spring seat like the old EG. I sat on one and i felt the need for a bit more leg room / height. Good Luck and Enjoy. Lets see some picks of full dress and stripped, thanks.

If it didn't vibrate it would be a Honda Davidson.

Isn't SwitchBack a Dyna with different trim, etc.? Maybe a few more pounds? Wonder where the vibration came in?

I'm still lovin' my new first Harley (and my first ride - my '09 FXDC.

Just a FNG.

Not all of them are having the problem, but it happens at 2900, or 3000 RPM's. Real bad from what I have heard.
