Your composure quickly disappears the instant you are forced to make a tight U-turn. All of that weight of the FLHR abruptly reappears the second you drop speed to about 5 kph and below. Come to a stop, look out for oncoming traffic and quickly rumble away - all the time wishing your foot was made of titanium alloy and not flesh and bone. The self-centring triple tree (designed by a certain genius named Eric Buell) helps to a large extent, but it's what you had for breakfast that makes or breaks the whole manoeuvre.
Harleys the world over don't come cheap. But ironically, we as a developing nation are forced to shell out nearly double of what everybody elsewhere would need to. Tagged at Rs 20.45 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi for a bone-stock bike, you might want to add on the pipes or maybe even some extra bling; not that it needs any more in my opinion. All of that adds up to quite a substantial amount of money, but hey, you get more than just the bike. Your money buys you a whole new lifestyle and membership into a very unique clique. What's more? You can actually be something you always wanted to be - the real king of the road.
