Have been following this board for awhile I have the impression that most people do not like the stock Harley, it would seem that most want to upgrade to a stage whatever in an attempt to get more out of the engine. I presently drive a GL1800 and have some issues, power is not one of them, mostly comfort and the lack of support that Honda is giving to their customers and to their dealers. As a result I have chosen to not deal with them anymore and the bike is on the block and have ordered a new Ultra Classic which I should have in a few weeks. I am beginning to wonder if I made the right decision, I get the impression that a lot of people who have Harleys seem to be looking for more power, I have that now but am looking for a ride with more soul. I may be wrong but are there any out there who are happy with their bikes without the need for more power and enjoy them in their stock configuration, I guess that sounds like a stupid question. I tour and enjoy it, speed is not important, if all I wanted to do was beat people on the streets I would not buy either the Honda or the Harley. Are there any out there who are happy with the stock Harley?? Thanks!!!
