What you expect from these specs and get on the road are two very different things. On our ride around Park City, Utah, the FLD gobbled up those pesky small bumps with aplomb. Square-edged irregularities would jiggle the rider but never provide anything like a shock to the hands or backside. Sure, the low stance consumes cornering clearance, so the floorboards drag well before the Dyna chassis shows discomfort, but to achieve the twin goals of a low seat (27.4 in., bike unladen) and a sophisticated highway ride is fairly amazing. Reduced-weight wheels, lovely five-spoke items that evoke the iconic Cragar SS, help with suspension compliance, too.
