    Hi everybody new member here. I'm in the market for a new bike. (my 89 sporty is just to old anymore) looking at the 08 crossbones for my upgrade. Was wondering if any crossbones owners out there could let me know how their bike is preforming with some some miles on it. and any know problems with bike? don't want to end up with a pos !!! haven't found any info on net about major problems but but want a robust motor for daily rider.

    thanks,
    lucky

    I test rode a crossbones at demo days a few years back they look awesome but the seat and riding position did not agree with me...take one out for a ride and you decide

    Welcome to the forum. I have had my Crossbones since 2009 and I love it. I tried several models before deciding on the bones and it fits me great. The ride is very comfortable and it handles very well. I have never had any issues, including with the springer front end. I'd be happy to give you any other information you would like on it if you want to PM me.

    Welcome to the forum, I have a 2009, bought new in 2008, in Colorado and shipped it over to the UAE. I had lots of issues with the front end, a wobby. many new tires and bearing later one of the guys got it....but they tried everything, he swapped out the wheel, no issues since. I have short legs and got rid of the seat almost right away. I have about 35000 miles on it now and other than it being lower than most of my co riders (I bottom out on some curves, so I just take it slower) I love it. still gets alot of looks so I guess other people like it too.
