Low Seat Height, Butt-Friendly Saddle, And A Smooth Ride

The Fat Boy has been around, at least as a concept, since 1988, but it really showed up on everyone’s radar and earned a place in American pop culture when old Arney rode one in Terminator 2. Since it’s such an iconic bike, it’s hardly surprising that it survived the Great Purge of 2017 that saw so many models eliminated from the Softail and Dyna lineups as the former absorbed the latter. The FLSTF joins the rest of the all-new-for-2018 Softail range with a completely reworked frame and a choice between the 107-inch and 114-inch Milwaukee-Eight powerplant. New design features add to the aesthetics and clearly mark these Fat Boys as members of the New Guard.

2015 - 2017 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy / Fat Boy Lo / Fat Boy S

2015 - 2017 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy / Fat Boy Lo / Fat Boy S

When old Arnie jumped his “borrowed” Fat Boy into the drainage sluice in Terminator 2back in ’91, he cemented the Fat Boy’s place in American pop culture for all time. Harley has stayed true to the original look, and they’ve continually refined the Fat Boy in the interim to bring us the newest range of models built on the FLSTF platform.

We have the traditional-looking Fat Boy as a base model with the blackout Fat Boy Lo as sort of a side-grade model. The factory included the Fat Boy in its “S-series” program that sees existing bikes souped up with Harley’s biggest production engines and decked out with Screamin’ Eagle performance parts. Join me while I take a look at the specific upgrades H-D sprinkled across the range.

Harley-Davidson bikes are good for stunts too

Matt Mingay is a stunt rider from Stuntz Inc performing on Harley-Davidson motorcycles such as the 2009 Fatboy and Ultra Glide as well as the Muscle and the Nightster. As crazy as it might sound, this guy manages to do with these bikes what few sport bike riders can with theirs.

Harley-Davidson has teamed up with Firestorm for the making of this video, which looks almost unrealistic due to the type of bikes involved. Believe it, it’s real!

Lego bike with real bike handles = ingenuity and a lot of free time

Lego bike with real bike handles = ingenuity and a lot of free time

The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy inspired the creation of this impressively accurate remote-controlled Lego replica named the Mindstorms NXT Fat Boy. Good for kids, but not for us, you will say and we must agree, but what makes us interested in it is the fact that its controller is shaped like a real bike’s handles.

In the video attached below you will notice that it also leans, like any respectable modern two-wheeled toy and the additional wheels aren’t easy to spot. So now you know what to buy your kid for Christmas and we also know who’s going to be playing with it when snow will cover the asphalt.
