    Picked-up the bike from the dealer yesterday and put a quick 100 miles on it. I traded a 2016 stock Lowrider, so I can compare. The S fixes the complaints I had with the stock Lowrider: Not enough power and poor suspension. Loads of torque on the S and the suspension and handling are very good. It reminds me of my sport bike days. I no longer have to steer around manhole covers. I haven't done enough miles to really assess the riding position, but it may need minor changes. I'm 5'11 and it's not a bad fit. As with all Harleys I've had except touring bikes, the seat needs changing for any distance riding. It provides good support, but my fat A$$ needs more padding. Bike stops the same as the stock Lowrider and haven't had the ABS engaged yet. Looks are a matter of taste and I like it except for the wheel color. I was expecting gold, something like on the JPS formula 1 cars of the 70s. It looks more like the results of a bad chili and beer day! Easy fix, but for the cost I expected better. Overall finish is good with clean lines. I would definitely have bought this over the stock Lowrider if it was available 6 months ago. You get allot for the extra money.
