Well folks, it’s that time of year again. The Sturgis bike rally is over and Harley-Davidson has revealed to the world its 2018 lineup, and while what there is would definitely qualify as big news, what there isn’t is almost as important. Noticeably missing is the Dyna family and the V-Rods. I’ll be honest; with only a few exceptions I never really cared for the Dyna family — didn’t see anything wrong with the FXR family that it replaced — so it doesn’t hurt my feelings to see it go away. Perhaps “go away” isn’t the correct terminology here since the sport-handling characteristic of the Dyna got engineered into the all-new faux-rigid frame of the 2018 Softails. At the end of the day, the range has been eliminated right along with the apparently-failed experiment that was the V-Rod family.
