    A long long time ago, I tested out a dyna wide glide. Really liked it and it fit like a glove. Never pulled the trigger but yesterday I picked up one these breakouts. Couldn’t be happier. This bike is absolutely perfect for me. I’m 6’2” and it fits me just great.

    So, I've owned Breakouts since 2014. My 2018 is 117 Stage 4. Too many upgrades to list. But basically the same as the 2023, including the new 5 gallon tank, cruise control, etc. I kept my Sundowner passenger pillion when I sold my 2014. That and the quick disconnect passenger backrest. When taking solo trips I strap my Harley luggage on the back facing me and I lean back on it. No more back pain! I recently put 17" apes on short black risers. The whole bike is blacked out. Anyway... just wanted to say that I have toured on Breakouts (94k miles on my 2014) and I still tour on my 2018. The new quick disconnect, locking hard bags from Harley are awesome and don't detract from the look of the Breakout. The versatility they add is worth it in my opinion. Believe me, I love the stripped down look of the Breakout. However, on a multi-state trek it sure is nice to have those bags. I can put my firearm in them and lock it up. And when I get to a motel for the night, the bags pop off in less than 10 seconds (when unlocked). Then I can ride my stripped down Breakout around town. Best of both worlds! Just sayin'.

    I'm not so sure. Talking with my local HD shop (a big 2-story), a lot of customers are rejecting a few bikes because of the price tag. Like the Sportster S, Nightster, and a couple of others. Yes, some are selling, but not to their expectations. That's missed sales. It will be interesting to see how this sells.

    I'm glad you included the riding video. From your description, I imagined a far worse and less comfortable riding position. I only have a 31 inch inseam at 5'10", so the drag bars and forward controls were a big concern with this bike. I get nightmares thinking about polishing all of that chrome, but I don't have much choice. Harley Davidson's are my preference, even though I don't like the styling of their new bikes. The Breakout at least looks like a Harley Davidson should look. A blacked out version with a skinnier rear tire would be the shit, in my opinion. I like classic, American, cruiser style motorcycles; and I enjoy riding them, far more than I do washing and polishing them. It's either this or the Fat Boy, for me.

    Good advice. I went in to the store seriously looking at the Breakout and rode out with a Sport Glide. Don’t miss the difference and the 107 has a stage 1 on it. But touring and bags is what pointed me to close the deal on a Sport Glide. I tour and can easily ride out 6 hours feeling fresh at the end. Round town I drop the bags and just ride clean. Handling of the Sport Glide easily makes up for the slight drop in HP. But heck, the Breakout does look great!!!!

    I own a 2014 breakout that I did a 120R swap on when I purchased it from the dealer. Which had the original 5 gallon tank. I'll be honest with you I took it for decently long rides and I enjoyed it. I guess it depends on the person. I also put the "chop z" real license plate bracket and light kit which gets rid of the side lights and the side plate mount. Makes for a really nice addition. I still enjoy it to this day

    I'm glad they came back out with the breakout in U.S. I was gonna buy one, then they disappeared. I just found out they released them again this year. I just don't care for the color options, I hope 2024 will have better, like blue. I originally had a 2002 nightrain and I loved the looks and riding position didn't bother me, what I didn't like was the skinny back tire and it really was a dog power wise. This breakout looks to be a lot better.

    In 2020 my fitment specialist said the Breakout wouldn't have been a good bike for my long distance travels in terms of comfort and handling. They brought it back this year so I'd like to test ride the changes. Either this or the Low Rider ST. I like the looks of this over the ST; a sissy bar could be added to strap a baçkpack on for multiple day rides.

    The headlight does it justice. We should all be tired of round lights by now, unless you are into classic designs. LED’s are the future. The pipes look great. Back tire a bit too big for my liking. Not a fan of the handlebars. Lots of mounting space though. I love the digital gauges. Lots of info possible. Just too small. I’m a big fan of dual gauges. Harley still needs to put more effort into knocking some of the weight off. Overall, nice bike.
