    I seem to have bought a Harley. A 2020 Stage 2 Sport Glide, actually, with a load of useful extras/mods and following a good few hours out on a demo to make sure I really like it.

    The stock engine - a Milwaukee Eight 107 - is 1750cc, producing 92.5 HP and torque of around 150NM. The Stage 2 (which costs about £2.5k as an option) adds between 25-30% HP and boosts torque by some 10-15%. In other words, the bike is an absolute beast.

    It should be with me in a week or so, after the PDI. However, its just been serviced, had two new tyres fitted and been to Freddy Trott for a full valet, ceramic coating and ACF-50 treatment.

    So excited! (Hope @Sandi T approves, too ;))

    I'm sure I will. I had about 4 hours on a demo (without the Stage 2) today and absolutely loved it.

    I've had 3 Harleys in the past and they have been the most reliable bikes I've owned, and they put a big grin on your face every time you ride them

    Nothing so far. Your 2020 should have the latest and greatest oil pump, so it shouldn't sump. The tires are about shot at <7000 miles. Otherwise, it's very nice. I enjoy it, and it gets decent gas mileage. It does require premium, 91 octane (US), which ain't cheap.
    Just keep the fluids changed and ride it!
