I was riding an Ultra Classic Electraglide (Also tagged with the moniker FLHTCU) from 93 - 96. Put 65,000 miles on that bike, and while it rode great, handled fairly well (once I changed the suspension & brakes and tossed the whitewall Dunlops for Metzelers), it spent roughly 6 months of that 3 years in the shop. Fixes included a radio, 9 sets of rocker boxes, 2 top ends, an entire motor (when the crankpin snapped and the flywheels took out the cases), and a transmission, just to list the bigger stuff. It's the reason I left Harleys and moved to BMWs. Never really looked back, although I did buy a 79 FXE Shovelhead that I kept for about 9 months as a 2nd to my RT. Only put 2000 on it and sold it, just no interest any more.

The shortest distance between two points is for people who don't ride!
