2018 Line HD Line Up!

When I saw the 2018 line up the Softail Breakout grabbed me hard. It's a bike I could graduate to after a few more years with my Street 750. The weight is only 650 pounds so I felt really excited and with the new motor this thing should be the bomb! The look of the bike seems perfect! Sign me up! Right!
Wrong....19k. I was thinking maybe 11 to 13k. Boy was I wrong! Is this bike worth more than 2 XG750s. My next bike will be another XG 750.....maybe with ABS and a new color.....
But if I win the lottery I know what I want
Softail Breakout in that dark red!
Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

Looks to me like they are copying Indian bikes.

Don't look anything like a Polaris. Look back the Heritage Classic has the Harley 1950's all over it.

Stopped at my dealer. Test Rode a 18 Fat Bob. Rides SOFT. Only real problem I had was, The Forward Controls. I need Mid Controls. The 18 Breakout broke down. And couldn't be demonstrated.

That Fat Bob with the Mikwalkee 8 is probably my next bike.

Took a 114 Fat Boy out today. Scared the **** out of me.


The Fat Bob was a 114 as well.


1st time I have ever heard my Salesman say he was Shaking after riding a bike. Think it was a Street Glide 117. And he rides a Low Rider S
