Nonetheless, our Switchback saw plenty of long-haul miles since I, being its primary wrangler, do not tour lightly. And, after all those miles, I can confirm it makes a better around-town bike and occasional weekend tripper than it does a full-on long-distance touring machine. The Dyna chassis simply delivers too much of the big Twin Cam 103’s throb, making for a cool, “I’m-holding-a-huge-V-twin-in-my-hands” feel, but it translates into less comfort or missing/broken parts on extended highway-speed runs. We made a trip to the dealer to fix a cracked Screamin’ Eagle Nightstick exhaust ($329.95) and had to be vigilant in keeping fasteners on the bike’s saddlebags and rearview mirror stems tight, for example. And, if you carry a computer or other electronics, insulate it well from the vibration or pay the consequences. Don’t ask how I know.
