Breakout in the flesh...

This morning I donned the layers and rode across to Leeds Harley Davidson. I just wanted to have a browse and whet  my appetite you understand. What I discovered was not one but a beautiful brace of Softail Breakouts in stock. One completely standard in Morroccan Gold (creamy white) and the other silver candy with slightly more swept back handlebars.

I sat on both and I have to say the replacement bars gave a slightly better riding position. Not that I've had a ride yet, just a static sit-on. The test ride will happen sometime in the next few weeks. In the meantime I've got the photo to remind me of what's to come.

A thing of true beauty.....no, the bike, silly!

  2. I too was at the local dealer yesterday, drooling over all the 2014s. Some very nice eye candy there for sure, but hard to justify upgrading since I like my '07 so much.

    1. I don't reckon I'm going to be one of those people who always have to have the latest model. I've never been like that about anything else. I look forward to a long relationship with my Harley.
