    Had no idea you were working for HD now. See many "Street" models come in for service? Or repair? They've been out for a couple years now. I was just wondering how they were getting on.

    PS~ Know anyone looking for a 2016 FXDL?

    Figures, our local monopolistic chain of dealers is staffed with dudemen and dimwits. Colorrite.com doesn't carry the metal flakes and they carry pretty much every OEM paint there is, so I figured there was some merit to (what turned out to be) their banquet of bull$#!t.

    the undercoat decals are not.
    That's almost as heart breaking as not being able to get the paint...those decals are sweet and accent the metal flake nicely. At least the paint is available, although I'd have to order it from outside our chain of blithering idiots.

    I was surprised as well. I am told that the most likely reason that the graphics are not coming up as available is that they were not actually applique, but were screened directly onto the tank.

    It's a bit amusing with all the other companies pumping out retro bikes, HD decides hey, let's stick a foot in the future.

    I do like that muscle bike. It's sorely needed against the Diavel.

    I see them coming in for normal service, but that is about it. The biggest drawback to the Streets right now is that the parts supply chain can be slow. One of the program bikes needed a new front brake master cylinder, it took two weeks to arrive.

    And I bet it was marked up about 400% over Delhi price.

    Then it would be a pretty good deal in Delhi because it would cost only $20. It's probably cheaper to just buy one over here.

    If you were in Delhi and markup to US prices are as you expect, you would get a complete front brake master cylinder.
