This looks a lot like a regular Barbie...

I hate all the plastic on these new trucks especially the plastic bumpers. I use my truck as s truck I haul shit and drive on and off road. These new trucks are being catered to family sedans with a big ass trunk.


Bingo. I once worked with a guy who's sole reason for getting a F350 was to take the kids back and forth from school.

I'm not a huge truck kid, but I do see the need for a "professional edition" with metal bumpers, (somewhat) easily replaceable panels that see a lot of wear, easily cleanable interior, stuff like that.

they have that....my truck is the work edition....vinyl floors so i can clean them with soap and water, sealed-beam headlights that are cheap/easy to replace if they get damaged, no power accessories besides cruise control (this body style had problems with window motors getting wet and burning up), tow hooks, camper package, towing mirrors (not anymore - PO broke them and replaced with nemo mirrors)

Flame on guys, but I've always been a Ford Truck guy. But I think the styling has slipped a bit since the 97-01 styling. That black HD edition earlier looks pretty sharp - this new one - meh, take it or leave it.

Looks like a world class piece of shit just like it's namesake.

People that drive a "Harley" truck should be beaten with a bag of hammers. They are the same tools that insist on wearing "HD" Tee shirts everywhere they go in public, and likely the same tools that probably don't even know how to start a motorcycle.

my dad bought one because he liked the lightning but wanted a 4 door

he didnt own one HD t-shirt, he rode a yamaha, and he used to rag on his friends harleys all the time as he busted their ass from stop lights when they thought they had a "fast" harley

how does simply owning the truck correlate to anything youre saying? its not just a rebaged f150...they came fully loaded, climate control, heated seats, captains chairs with center consoles front and back, 5.4 supercharged motor unavailable in any other trim besides the lightning - which was only available in 2 door

i drove it after he passed and i dont wear harley anything, in public or otherwise and i wrench on my own bikes and trucks whenever possible....pretty sure i know how to start a bike :rolleyes:

They need a photo of a big fat middle aged guy wearing a leather vest driving it. Is it annoyingly loud & always go 10 miles below the speed limit like a real harley? ;)

mine didnt :D


it wasnt that fast, but i sure liked to give it a shot whenever the mustang wasnt running (guess it has the slowness factor in common with a real harley :lol:)

sadly, this truck was about the same speed as a lot of harleys too.....those poor bikes

Svt made the lightening sexy and fast, same as the new raptors. I always thought the Harley trucks were just cosmetic, I didn't know they had a supercharged v8.
actually a guy down the street from me has a lightning and cbr1000, i envy that lucky bastard.

Soulfoam : (May 04 2015 - 05:09 PM) So I got my first bike and I already dumped it (not to hard, only going about 10, broke the turn signal bracket (the turn signal its self is perfectly fine) and cracked the wind shield a bit), I already ordered a new bracket and the windshield I super glued and it seems to be fine.
Soulfoam : (May 04 2015 - 05:11 PM) But now, I dont know if this was happening before I mini dumped it, when I put the bike in neutral, the front tire doesnt lock up, but if its not straight, the brakes seem to be catching it.
Soulfoam : (May 04 2015 - 05:12 PM) So if Im turning the bike hard right or hard left and try moving forward or backward in neutral, it moves but has a lot of resistance from the front tire, could this be something huge or? I rode it around a bit today and the tire didnt seem to be grabbing when I was in gear, although I didnt make any hard turns with the handlebars so it might do it when I'm in gear, but I dont think it does.
