I’ll never know how Harley Davidson’s comes up with the names and numbers for its bikes. I’m sure there’s a very good explanation, but from the outside looking it, it’s confusing. Yes, we know that each letter designates something about the engine and model style, but it’s like learning a new language. For example, without going to Google or the Harley website, can anyone tell me which bike is a FLSTF?
Answer: It’s a Fat Boy.
Yeah, I had to Google it!
With that said, in June 2012 I had the opportunity to perform a VOG Member spotlight with Candubrain (Brian) at Inglis Cycle in London, Ontario in Canada. While it was nice catching up to the big guy, much of the discussion focused about his switch from a Victory Vision to a Harley Electra Glide Ultra Limited. I say big guy as I mean it! I’d never want to get on his bad side has he’s smoked cigars that are bigger than me!
