I for the life of me cannot make up my mind. I have ridden both bikes and both ride great. I am a bigger fan of the fatboy but it is 10 years older with more miles. Both are the same price and both are in great condition. The fatboy was upgraded with the 6 speed trans. Am I crazy buying the fatboy?

The Dyna low rider is a RUBBER mount and very little to no vibration except at idle.

The Fatboy isn't and will vibrate your feet right off of the floorboards.

Between the two, the Dyna is much more sporty.

The Fatboy was appropriately named.

The 6 speed is cool but neither one needs it.

Isn't the Fatboy the one with solid wheels? I'd go Dyna and stay as far away from solid wheels as possible. But you can make the Dyna look a lot like the Fatboy if it's the look you after. Plus what Porky said.

Buy the one that puts the biggest smile on your face.

Yeah dude asking us what bike you should get is like asking us what your next tattoo should be :D

But if they're both great & cost the same, maybe get the one with the better re-sale value.
