2014 Harley-Davidson FXDF Fat Bob

NEW FOR 2014

Fat tires, blacked out finishes, throaty slash cut mufflers, low fat handlebar, forward controls and a surly attitude. Now you're riding dirty...

From the double-barreled stare of its twin headlamps to the knobby tread of its burly tires, the Harley-Davidson® Fat Bob® makes a statement that is not subtle. But this motorcycle offers more than attitude. The rigid steel backbone of its Dyna® frame, a pair of thick 49 mm fork legs and chassis geometry that's tuned to turn make the Fat Bob a cruiser willing to hunt for corners and a blast to ride. Dual front disc brakes haul the Fat Bob down in a hurry.

New for 2014. Well, not 100% "new" but I'd call it "revamped" for 2014. Quite a few changes to it vs the 2008-2013 version. Last year it received the new 103 cubic inch engine as well.

LoL, oh good, it's not just me...

I love a dual headlamp and a skinny little front fender, but where's the skinny front tire to go with it? Having a skinny fender with a fat balloon like that just doesn't flow well visually.

Then we've got the fender bracket that overhangs the edge of the fender, which just screams 'parts bin', and that huge swath of plastic cover streetside -- this looks like nothing so much as that godawful Ridley that rode the lightning a few months ago. I just don't see the aggressive bike touted in the copy -- this looks like a pit bike. Yeah, I said it...

I DO like the drag bars and the double headlight though, I'll give it that. Not a Fail...

But absoluely Uncool.

Fail. Someone ran amok in the Styling Dept and then somehow this bike got through the Wait A Minute Dept without being noticed. Fugly.

I don't like the paint job. The seat looks very restrictive and uncomfortable.

The pipes side looks nice, but the other side looks lousy.

Based on looks, Fail.

I voted cool... since the Fat Bob is the only Harley I've ever seen that I would consider buying. I had a crush on a cherry red one parked at a used car dealership. I missed my turn on the way to work almost every day while checking out out. I bought a Durango instead though lol.

LoL!

What I find interesting is that we didn't get a single Awesome comment with those 14 Awesome votes. You'd think that least one of them would have waded into the fray to defend their machine...

Ok, you want an awesome comment? I'll give you one. :D

I voted: Awesome. (I waited till the end to vote as to not bias the votes)

I really, really love this bike from Harley-Davidson, always have since they launched it in 2008. It's the whole twin headlight, drag strip, muscle looking bike. To me, it's a fun to ride, comfortable and bad-$#@ machine.

I'm really happy with the new look and the changes, really love the new mag wheels with the Harley-Davidson and the stripes cut into the wheel (and clear coated on top) rather than it just being a sticker. Also the rear tail lights are a big improvement over the previous generation, in fact, while I would have chucked the stocker tail lights on that ver, I'd be happy to keep the factory ones now. :D

I took this one out with the new 103 engine and it's an improvement over the 96, but not as much as having a 110 in there, it's really an "in-between" feeling but it's better for sure.

So there you go, would I buy one? YOU BET.

LOL! Oh you guys. :revv:

I also really like the new Victory Judge as well.... ok, I can see a theme here... Any bike that's a naked muscle bike! Yes, that's my soft spot for sure! Heck even throw in a VTR in there too! :D

Love that Charlie Mopps - Beer. beer. beer song! Quite awesome on it's own as well. :D
