I love my Fatboys. I have a 2009 stage II. Did you ride the 750 Screaming Eagle? That thing was fast. I was really surprised. Hurt my back on that damn 48 stage one. I hit that dip on the road behind the airport at high speed and jammed my back. It had a super stiff suspension. I hate the riding position of some of th Harley's. Hands/arms stretched out to reach the bars, butt way back and feet well forward. Your body kind of looks like a C. I guess it is so you look cool, but no way to ride a bike. FatBobs are the same. I rode one with aftermarket pulled back bars and it was nice. Then again just get a Fatboy.

The Show seem better attended this year than last year. The traffic was terrible and the events were crowded. I did see a bunch of Harley riders who looked older than me, and I am 71.
