    Bought my first Harley ever. A 2004 Dyna Wide Glide fuel injected. Only has 7000 miles on it. Teal and Silver chromed out with Stage 2 exhaust. Really a beautiful bike.

    Question for old Harley riders. Is this/will this be a good bike? Good first time Harley? I'm excited thats for sure. It turns heads anywhere I take it.

    Should be a good bike and a good choice. They ride and handle well.

    Great Choice!!

    I have a 01 FXDWG and it was my first bike as well, I have 5900 miles on mine. I had never drove a street bike or had any lesson what so ever. I just climbed on and been riding ever since. I did however drive dirt bikes and quads everyday of my life as a teen, so I was not new to riding a bike.

    The wide glide is a great bike, so much to add to them. I added a bullet lite, seat, much chrome, braided lines, Vance and Hines shorts and 3" to the forward controls along with the street slammer bars and it just has a chopper like feel, I love it!!! I think you will too. Good luck and drive safe

    2003 wide glide as my first bike ever. I actually bought it in September '02 so I've had it a while now. It has been a great decision for me.

    Congratulations on your new ride. My 2002 Wide Glide was also my first big twin , but second Harley after a Sportster and I absolutely love it. It feels and handles beautifully and as you said they are a real head turner. One of the sweetest looking Harley's ever made in my opinion.
