The newer Harleys are not as critical on maintenance as the older ones.But any motorcycle you get needs attention and if you cant do most yourself it gets very costly.Part of the mystic of owning a Harley is understanding and taking care of it.
BTW I ride one of those AMF Harleys and wouldnt trade it for 3 new ones.

I have good news for you!!! You are thinking about the Harleys of old. I own a 2001 FXDL Lowrider which I now have put 24,000 miles on and have not turned a screw on it yet! Also there is not a drop of oil on my garage floor. It has never left me on the side of the road and never failed to crank except for one time when I let the battery run down and that was my fault for leaving the ignition in the accessory position all night. This is pretty much the same story I hear from all Harley riders on late model bikes. When AMF owned Harley, quality was the pitts! They were the worst thing on two wheels and AMF didn't really care. They were just about to let the bike name go the way of the Indian and other bikes of yesteryear. When the employees of HD were allowed to buy out the company in the very early eighties, that all changed. These people had a sense of pride in a product that they manufactured at a company that they owned. Year after year the bike line improved and now, over 25 years later, they have a product that is as good as any on the market. Mine has the 88 cubic inch twin cam engine which is rubber mounted and the vibration is not bad at all. A friend of mine just purchased a 2007 Night Train last week and brought it from Slidell, La. in the back of his pickup. I went over with another friend to help him offload it at his home. He tossed me the keys and said "crank her up." I was shocked.....absolutely NO vibration! Harley has added counter balance shafts to their new 96 cubic inch power plant. As a die hard Harley fan, I don't know if I like it that way. As a practical minded gear head, you gotta love it. It was smooth as glass and with the new 6 speed tranny, he was told to expect 56 miles from a 3 dollar gallon of gas. That sure beats my 48 with my 5 speed! To make a long story short, get the Harley. If that is what your heart desires, you will not be satisfied with anything else. All the breakdowns and bad quality problems are nothing but distant memories from over 25 years ago. A bad reputation is a hard thing to overcome,but Harley Davidson Motorcycles couldn't have done a better job in turning a fine name around and creating a product anyone would be proud to own. I know I have been extremely pleased with mine and when the day comes in the distant future when it is time to put the old Beast out to pasture, the new Beast is gonna have Harley Davidson stamped on the side of it!!
