The Softail Standard
The Heritage Softail
I'used the Heritage Softail above for some of my longer road trips around NSW and Qld. as it has more luggage space and the seating is more comfortable when I option up.
The Fatboy is a 2003 model with an 88 cubic inch engine. This model year was prior to the six speed transmissions being introduced however I had a Baker 6 speed gearbox fitted after I bought it in 2013. The Fatboy had only travelled 5000 kilometres when I acquired it.
The Softail Standard has been heavily customised as many are. It's a nice ride.
I've been riding motorcycles on and off since the mid-seventies. A small Suzuki motorcycle was my first mode of transport after leaving school and getting a job at a TV repair shop 25 kilometres from home. The first bike was a Suzuki with a 120cc engine. The novelty of riding everyday soon wore off after my first Winter of riding to and from work in all kinds of weather!
These days I'm a member of HOG International as well as the local Newcastle Chapter.

The above photo is of a 2018 model Fatboy equipped with a 114 cubic inch engine. I'd like to acquire one like this one day.
