    Anybody have one? My dad is considering trading in his 1999 Intruder 1500LC in for a 2008 Boulevard C109RT and I'm just looking for some feedback from anyone who has had one, riden one, still owns one, etc. From the online reviews, it seems to be a pretty solid bike and got lots of praise during various test rides. So, lets hear your opinions whether it be good, bad or ugly.

    Not that exact model, but I know numerous people with Boulevards, ranging from the 800cc models to the M109R, all of which love them. When I was toying the idea of a bike, I was looking long and hard at the M90 or M109R...nice looking and comfortable, to me at least. Plenty of power!

    I had the 2003 Volusia which was the carbureted version of it. I enjoyed mine. I just got tired of riding and it sat. I sold it and bought a lift kit for the taco.

    Thanks guys! I think my dad is going to buy it. We couldn't find any bad reviews on the bike.

    Update, he bought it! I haven't seen it yet but he said it's got torque to spare. It's not that much heavier than his older 1500 but very smooth and makes a lot of power in the low RPM range. His old 1500 was also carb'd and this one is FI so I'm sure the difference is night and day... In the few days he's had it, he seems very happy with it.
