    Is that under the seat? Why didn’t they paint the hidden parts of the bike, rather than just leave it in primer? Shoddy work if you ask me...

    There's wires through mine.

    But horror, I discovered a bolt sheared.

    I get why yours has a hole for the wiring but don’t understand why the newer touring models still have it when there appears to be no reason for it’s continued existence?

    My thoughts too, or they're just using old moulds and can't be bothered to update/change it.

    More likely the antenna hole for the infotainment stuff on the Street and Road Glide models.

    Not required on the Road King obviously.

    No issue with that, but a 50p grommet would hurt would it? Harley could even make one with a live to ride, ride to live stamp on it and sell it for £26+vat

    Fat blokes bounce better
