Since I'm a new owner of a Softail Standard,I thought that I would see who else here owns the same.
No problems yet. Only have 2700 miles on it since April. April was almost a wash because of the weather. I was planning on making a lot of changes,but the more I ride it,the better it feels. I had trouble deciding on which model to get in the beginning. But I made the right choice for me.Boise1 said:Have done a lot to mine, love the bike, no problems since new.
Local dealer has a few '05s including a Softail Springer Classic. I agree it is a sweet ride. But I'm still pleased with my SS. If I could have a second bike,it would be a EG Standard in Chopper Blue.Terrya12 said:Just saw the 05s today online and it looks like I will get another chance at the Softail Springer Classic. Looks cool with the black forks. Throw on some apes, lowering kit and she would be good to go. Thats the plan for now.
Sweet pipes! How's the sound? Stock seat feels like it has no padding after about 1/2 an hour. I'm thinking about a Sundowner,and H-D profile shocks.Allmanman said:Mine is an '03 FXSTI, SE filter, V & H Big Radius Pipes, PC 3 (Still looking for the right map). Nothing much more done other than sissy bar and pegs...yet, as I'm still waiting for the smoke to clear with the wife on the original purchase $$$. But I want sooooo much more...of course. Especially a better seat. 100 anniv or stock (same crap) is not comfortable on long rides. Here's pic with the new pipes.....
Thanks, I really like the look. I've been wanting pipes since day one but couldn't decide. Then V & H came out with these and the decision was easy. They have a real nice rumble to them. One that you don't need to remove the baffles, They're loud enough in my opinion. I like that Sundowner seat also, I want something higher in the back (passenger seat) and good back support. That looks like it covers both bases.I overstated, my wife's really not Bit**in' that much. She knew what she was getting into by me buying the bike. We just had allot of expenses of late (new pool, deck, fence, shed, etc) and the Harley comes after the house stuff....sometimesrkt88403 said:Sweet pipes! How's the sound?

No problem with my wife as she figures I deserve my bike.
