I know... go for a test ride...
I have my naked sportbike for sale on CL, probably going to pick up a cruiser next. Debating between a Dyna or M8 Softail and concerned about vibes.omegle
I had a rigid mounted Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 and owned rubber mounted Sportsters and rented a M8 Street Glide. discord The rubber mount bikes were super smooth on the highway, the Kawasaki had pulsing vibes that were xender more prominent at some rpms than others that I wasn’t crazy about. I’ve read on the forums that the M8 softails are vibey on the highway.
So, what do the M8 Softails feel like on the highway? Thanks.

I have a 2019 Low Rider. It feels pretty smooth compared to the 2018 Honda Shadow Phantom I had.

I recently did a pre-purchase test ride of the 2020 Electra Glide std and the Street Glide and found them both very smooth on the highway and even at idle where they used to shake a bit. The M8 107 had gobs of torque and the 6 speed trans allowed very low rpm's at cruising speeds.

I don't have any recent experience with their Softtail line but the new FATBOY just turns me on:)
