I sat on one yesterday at the dealer. The drag bars were more comfortable than I thought the would be.
I don't like the rear fender much, but to each his own. Great bike for the bucks.

Sorry, I meant the headlight itself, mounted on the softail frontend...

Personally, I like the Fat Bob, but would change out the exhaust and that headlight if I got one. Just not my taste.

I dual light wouldn't draw me to the bike, but I like diversity every now and then...keeps things from getting boring. It wouldn't stop me from buying the bike if otherwise I liked it. I hope it puts out more light than a single, bigger light, but I don't know. BTW...buy what YOU want (of course).

I want to find that out before I scope a light out...I've been waiting for the dealer to get a Bob in stock...guys at the shop are pretty cool, and would keep an eye out for a "take-off", but I dont think many are going to replace it. I did see an aftermarket dualie setup, but it didn't look as good as HD's light.

Dual Headlight

I think the Dual light would look interesting on a Softail. @gree: If You change post a pic would be good to see.

I saw a custom 'tail down in Daytona last spring that had a dual headlight setup. Lights were much smaller than the bob's but looked way cool.....

Opinion

Custom Chrome sells a very nice and affordable dual headlight setup, and I have run several of them.

I think the Fatbob is the best bike in the HD lineup. I really like the drag bars, layout, lights, and everything else. As mentioned, would probably get better pipes.

I also doubt if there is ever going to be any takeoffs on the headlights, that is one item that gives it the distinct look.
