Harley Night Train..whatcha think ?

I am seriously considering selling my Busa for a Night Train. I want to settle into more of a cruising mode. I love the looks with the drag-style handlebars,forward pegs and blacked out motor. Of course I am looking into a number @ Illinois Harley. ( gotta keep the sponsors happy ) Any and all comments are welcome.

Yea I am compensating..

Night Train You'd look like one bad mutha on that bike.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Welllll......there's a catalog about 2 inches thick chock full of accessories. You might want to take a look at it. There are lots of engine mods available right from the dealer such as a 95ci or 103 ci kit, intake and exhaust upgrades, computer maps, Screaming Eagle parts etc.. For the rest of the bike there are things like bags, windshields, backrests, custom pegs, grips, mirrors, suspension mods, custom wheels, sprockets and lots of chrome goodies(I know you guys buy the NT because it lacks all the chrome. ). I can't even begin to list everything.

Almost 1500cc, fuel injection, love the offset dual exhaust pipes. What other bikes are you looking at?

To tell you the truth, not many more. I kind of fell in love with the looks, and from what write ups I have read it has huge props. All Harleys are created equal anyway...

You may want to test ride a Road King, before you get a Softail. I fell in love with the Softail Fat Boy, but after I tried a RK Custom, I felt the ride on the Softail was to choppy and not enjoyable after long rides.

My two cents,

The ride on the softtail is quite acceptable. I made a 6100 mile ride this summer on mine without any ass problems. Did it in 10 days. Spent a LOT of time in the saddle.

Yea I am not interested in a bagger, or have the look of a bulky bike. I like the sleek looks. I am more of a local rider anyway, so my trips wouldnt be long distance... but I do see your point if I was a long distance rider .

Any thing is possible. I did some long trips on a Busa, but like I said, I preferred the ride of the Road King over a Softail.

That's why I like the RK CUSTOM, is looks a little less "bulky" then the Classic.

See if you can get a test ride on a Road King Custom. It should put a smile on your face

Gregg, I like the NT too. Before picking up my Softail Deuce, the NT had made it to the short list, along with the Fat Boy. One thing you may want to consider is renting one for a day or two. Many of the HD dealers in the area rent many different models. A quick test ride can tell you alot, but a day or two on the bike will tell you much, much more.

You may want to think about some motor mods too. After being used to Busa HP you might want a little more than the stock motor delivers.

I would NOT buy all the "goddies and extras" when your at the dealer. You can save a ton of cash if you look on ebay or check out the swap meets. If you know what your looking for it's amazing how much you can save.

Ok I can speak to your situation since I went from a busa to harley. Do I have any regrets? Nope. I love my hog, out of all the 15 bikes I've owned it is by far my favorite. the styling, the comfort, the sound, the huge aftermarket, countless customizing options to keep me busy for years. So have no fear you'll love the bike.

As far as the nighttrain goes its a beautiful bike. My first choice on mods is a rhinehart or vance and hines 2-into-1 system get a fuel injection controller and a 95 inch engine kit with cams and head work. you will miss the horsepower of the other bike but not as much as you think since its a totally different riding experience. doing what I suggested there should put you just over 100 horse and 100 ft lbs of torque which is more than enough to get one of these up on one wheel o raost the rear tire on command.

As far as what t buy with the bike, I would add the exhaust right from the dealer, your not gonna want to hear it with the stock pipes, they sound like shit.

If you need any advice always feel free to call

Awsome Tony.... all of the feed back has been great. I know you came from a Busa, but it has never been about speed for me anyway. As many can probably attest to. I am going to Illinois Harley tommrow to check it out. First I want the Bike.. Mods can be a winter thing. You will probably be hearing from me Tony.. I am a Harley Newbie...

It's a nice bike Gregg. Good Luck with it.

You know, nobody said you can't have 2 bikes, so why sell the Busa?

Thanks Mike... I am looking forward to it. I need to sell it, I need to slow down a bit, I feel that part of my life is done. Hell I am hittin mid 40's and need to think about "staying safe" the Busa lends to a " fast " ride. Just a personal decision I need to make is all. Plus weird as it sounds.... My Pop has always wanted to drive a Harley, and well he is dying of cancer and I wanted him to get that chance. And I want him to have it .

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
