I bought my Hard-Ball as soon as they came out - trading in my Victory Vegas. It came with the windshield which you have to have to enjoy the highway.
I put in the Victory Stage I pipes but don't expect the same sound that you do with those pipes on a Vegas because of the low and back location of the exhaust.
After I got past the break-in, I took it for a 2,500 mile ride from Las Vegas to Seattle and back. It was a great ride.
The seat was comfortable for a stock seat. I do have the driver's backrest and that was a great help.
The bike is perfectly balanced. There is a lot of power no matter what gear you are in. I got compliments the entire trip and even came out of convenience stores with people standing around it and sometimes even taking pictures.
I did put on the heel shifter from the cross-roads and that is a great help. I am 61 and this is the last bike I am going to have to buy. I love it.
Upgrades/Accessories: Heel Shifter, Victory Stage I pipes, Sound of Chrome Black sound system, driver and passenger backrest.
