    Now they need to do a modern Electra glide with that engine and some suspension and brakes

    That could be interesting 🤔

    The front end looks are very challenging but it does blend in better in a single colour, it's different but I think I could get used to it and they seem to have the pricing right. Plenty of power and I look forward to the first reviews to see how it rides and handles.

    They say you can't use Muc Off on it, but they recommend Shake 'n' vac

    Two things I've read about that I really like. While peak torque and HP arrive at pretty high rpm Harley claim the torque curve is very flat. Self adjusting valves is huge IMO. No $750 valve check/adjustment every 16,000 miles like on my Africa Twin, or $1,000 on a Crosstour, or $2,500 on a Multi Strada every 24,000.

    It looks as if the 1250 special will be the one to go for as it comes with heated grips, centre stand and other stuff. It does all add to the weight though. 21 litre tank giving a range of 265 miles - claimed.

    I must admit, I am curious (where's that number for Hitachi finance again??)

    Perhaps so, typically if you want even 1/2 the extra stuff that comes on a "Special, Premium", etc., you're better off paying the extra up front to buy that version. At this point other than centre stand, hand guards, and heated grips there's not much else I see on the special I'd really want so I'd probably go with a base model and add those three. Luggage and spoke wheels are optional either way. Surely the stock cast wheels will be tough enough for pot holes and dirt roads.

    Luggage - I’ve had it all - tin boxes - varios - bin bags - etc

    All costs £1k plus - and spends 90% of it’s time sat on a shelf - I have an £80 Ortlieb waterproof bag - fill it with all the kit you need and rock strap to the pillion - job done.

    Interesting, everyone has their system. On full size bikes I generally fit them with side cases keeping the cases no wider than the bars, and pretty much leave them locked on. Drybag carries my camping stuff and goes on the pillion only when required because I find gear stacked on the rear seat makes it more difficult getting my leg over. And tail trunks back on the rack behind the pillion seat carry weight exactly where I prefer it not be, high and way back.
