    No new technology and finally a fix for the noisey 5th. gear. Helical VS. previous straight cut spur gear. Was it three years of R&D or R&R?

    I quite like the changes to the Dyna Wide Glide, although I just noticed that the Australian version gets the Sparto style tail light off the Dyna Street Bob.

    Cyril, you are on Top of the Cycle Happenings ! You are the “TMZ” of the Industry ! HD a lot of Looks and No earth Shattering Stuff, that’s for sure ! I think when you are short of Do Re Mi you Re-Package rather then Re-Make . Lower the Prices $5 G’s and send them Sportster to China, I mean Wallmart ! You will Sell Bikes and …………….Parts, Clothes, Shoes and Boots and Lighters and ALL !

    What can you tell us about the new engine for 2010?

    Did harley do anything with the problems they are having with the 110 engine? The problems are outlined in A.I. Mag, January through April, with oil leaking head gaskets and other issues, in case anyone wants to keep informed. Keep up the great work with staying on top of everything!!!

    I haven’t paid much attention to tire size on the Touring bikes until the change in 2009. Used to be 16″ wheels and the tires were available from many companies.
    In 2008 the tires were:
    Front MT90B16 72H
    Rear MU85B16 77H
    In 2009 they are:
    Front 130/80B17 65H
    Rear 180/65B16 81H
    The 2009 tires in these sizes are only available from a Harley dealer.
    Now I see the 2010 FLTR with an 18″ front wheel.
    This may not be a big deal to some but these are touring bikes and if I get a sidewall puncture while riding the lost hwy I really want access to a new tire asap.
    Just something to consider while we drool over the 2010

    Not to mention that anything bigger than a 16″ on a bagger looks ridiculous. H-D used to resist going with all these fads, but looks like they figured out how to make a buck from it, and to H with safety or even common sense.

    “New and interesting” indeed … Jalopnik’s Wes Siler hits the nail on the head here:


    God help Harley if this is the best they can do in their time of crisis.
